Kentucky’s victory over Louisville and spot in the TaxSlayer Bowl in Jacksonville on Dec. 31 continue to have a big impact on UK’s recruiting in Florida.
Three-star offensive lineman Sebastien Dolcine announced today that he was de-committing from Central Florida and heading to Kentucky after taking an official visit to UK over the weekend.
The 6-4, 285-pound Dolcine joins Austin Dotson of Belfry and Nassir Watkins of Maryland as offensive linemen in the 2017 recruiting class.
Kentucky had at least three other offensive linemen, including Alabama commit Jedrick Wills of Lafayette, on campus last weekend.
Dolcine is from Hollywood, Fla., like former UK commits Josh Ali and Chris Whittaker, who also was originally committed to Central Florida.
Dolcine ranks as the nation’s No. 78 guard and the No. 231 prospect in Florida according to 247SportsComposite.
Dolcine is the sixth commit that Kentucky offensive coordinator Eddie Gran has recruited. Coach Mark Stoops praised Gran’s Florida recruiting connections when he hired him.
Kentucky now has 17 verbal commits in the 2017 class.
