Bowling Green High School wide receiver Nacarius Fant said on his Twitter account Wednesday night that he has committed to play football at Western Kentucky University.

The 5-foot-11, 175-pound senior-to-be attended the University of Kentucky's Saturday Night Prime Time Camp over the weekend and told the Courier-Journal that he expected to receive a scholarship offer.

According to Rivals.com, Fant had scholarship offers from Illinois and WKU.

Fant is rated a two-star prospect by Rivals.com and a three-star by Scout.com.

He helped lead the Purples (15-0) to the Class 5A football state championship last fall. Fant had three catches for 85 yards, including a 45-yard touchdown, in the title game.
