According to 247Sports, Kentucky has picked up another 2017 football commitment in Florida defensive end Christopher Whittaker.
He visited Kentucky over the weekend even though he was verbally committed to Central Florida in early September.
The 6-5, 240-pound Whittaker is a three-star recruit but is among the top 150 recruits in Florida. He had 11 quarterback sacks this season.
He is the 15th verbal commitment in UK’s 2017 recruiting class and the first one since Kentucky beat Louisville to end the season. He was recruited by UK defensive line coach Jimmy Brumbaugh.
