The UK football program got a little good news before Saturday's game.
Three-star cornerback Jeremiah Dinson announced his commitment to the Wildcats about an hour before UK and Ohio kicked off in Commonwealth Stadium.
Dinson — a 5-foot-11 prospect from Hialeah, Fla. — arrived in Lexington on Thursday night for his first visit to the school and was at Saturday's game. He said before the trip that he would likely commit to the Cats if everything went as planned.
Dinson is somewhat of an under-the-radar recruit — with a three-star ranking from Rivals.com. ESPN and 247Sports have not yet given him a star ranking.
Never miss a local story.
Arkansas and Duke were his other finalists, and he also had reported scholarship offers from Pittsburgh, N.C. State, Cincinnati and Syracuse, among others.
Kentucky surged ahead of the Razorbacks as Dinson's favorite in recent weeks. UK cornerbacks coach Derrick Ansley is his primary recruiter and will also be Dinson's position coach in Lexington.
The newest UK commitment got his senior season off to a good start last week, returning a kickoff 95 yards for a touchdown in his team's 45-12 victory.
The Cats now have 14 commitments for the class of 2015, including three defensive backs. Ohio cornerback Kei Beckham and Florida safety Marcus Walker committed to UK on the same night in July.
Dinson joins Walker as the second Florida native in UK's recruiting class, which is ranked 28th in the country by Rivals.com.
