Kentucky has added another football commit as three-stay Maryland safety Kobie Walker (@BeyondBelief on Twitter) announced on Twitter Monday night that he was joining the Wildcats.

One source called him a “big-time linebacker” and indicated there would be more commitments coming soon.  The 6-3, 205-pound Walker is one of the players that Conner quarterback Drew Barker said he planned to call after he verbally committed to UK last week.

Walker plays at Our Lady Good Counsel High School in Olney, Md., one of the top football programs in the nation most years. It also shows that new UK coach Mark Stoops is going to continue to extend UK’s recruiting reach different ways but still stay within a reasonable drive time to Kentucky to make it more attractive to recruits.

“Walker is a big time athlete for the UK defense and is probably way better than what he is rated,” the source said.

He is ranked 36th nationally at his position by Rivals.com. He had scholarship offers from Arizona, Boston College, Oklahoma State, North Carolina State, Rutgers and Miami (Fla.).

Walker  joins Barker along with five Ohio players — defensive end Tymere Dubose, linebacker Dorian Hendrix, running back Mikel Horton, tight end Darryl Long and receiver Thaddus Snodgrass — in UK”s 2014 recruiting class.

    Starting to believe.

  • steve from Dayton says:

    Kobie has slipped in quietly. I didn’t see this one coming but I am limited.

    Welcome, Kobie! You’re going to like the Bluegrass. It’s almost as beautiful as Maryland.

  • AndrewB says:

    He is tall for a safety and light for a linebacker…which is he.

    If he could get some weight on him, he could be a linebacker with great cover skills. This sounds good to me.

    I am getting starting to get excited a bit.

    Welcome to BBN, Kobie. We are glad that you will be playing here.
    Good Luck!

    I am amazed at how quickly we have come to expect 3* and 4* recruits. It used to be a cause of celebration when we got a 3*commitment, and it wasn’t that long ago. Congratulations to Coach Stoops & Co. I understand that we are now 18th in recruiting. Wow!!!!

  • Larry Pup says:

    steve what do you mean almost? I’ve lived in Maryland. Western Maryland near the PA line. It is a beautiful state, but Kentucky has it beat. Anyway Kobie, Olney is near Rockville in Montgomery County. Pretty place, but you are gonna love the Bluegrass State and the BBN. Go Wildcats.

    Actually he is a great pu. Kid lays the wood as I understand things. Great school he comes from as well.

  • Carter says:

    Keep up the great football work. Check you out everyday to see what you are tracking. I’d love to be freelancing with this football recruiting.

      Carter, thanks and you would love it. Just do some writing for us here. I can’t keep up with it all. Old age can’t match Stoops and staff energy
