Another day, another highly touted cornerback recruit from Florida for Kentucky coach Mark Stoops.
Today it is 6-3, 180-pound Jamari Brown of Pompano Beach. A day earlier it was Stanley Garner. Both came to UK camps this summer and both were primarily recruited by offensive coordinator Eddie Gran.
He had offers from schools such as Auburn, Louisville, Oregon, South Carolina and Mississippi State.
He is the third cornerback and fifth commitment from Florida in UK’s 2018 recruiting class. The Cats now have 18 verbal commitments for 2018.
Ely and Garner are both three-star players with big upsides. Each runs in the 4.4 second range in the 40-yard dash
Brown is now the fifth Broward product committed to Kentucky in the 2018 recruiting class. He and Garner join the Chaminade-Madonna trio of lineman Davoan Hawkins and receivers Marvin Alexander and Akeem Hayes.
