Kentucky football hoping for double 'Yahtzee' on Saturday

The University of Kentucky football program could be in for another big recruiting afternoon Saturday.

Defensive end Darius Fullwood and wide receiver Jabari Greenwood — two of UK's top targets in the class of 2015 — will announce their college decisions during a joint ceremony at 4 p.m.

Both prospects are from the Washington, D.C., area, and Kentucky has emerged as the favorite in both recruitments over the past 48 hours.

Fullwood — a 6-foot-3, 240-pound prospect — will choose either Kentucky, Virginia Tech, Maryland or Duke. Rivals.com ranks him as a four-star recruit and the No. 18 strongside defensive end in the class of 2015. He visited UK this month and was also on campus in April for the Blue-White Spring Game.

Greenwood — a 6-3, 190-pound receiver — has narrowed his list of schools to UK, Michigan State, North Carolina State, Illinois and Rutgers. Rivals.com ranks him as the No. 42 wide receiver in the class. He has been on UK's campus twice in the past few months.

Kentucky already has 10 commitments for the class of 2015.
