The Kentucky Wildcats have added another Bluegrass State prospect to their 2021 recruiting class. Wednesday three-star defensive back Jordan Lovett from North Hardin High School in Radcliff, Kentucky, committed to the Wildcats in a radio interview.
Lovett is the sixth, fifth player in the state of Kentucky for 2021 by Rivals and the Commonwealth’s top-ranked defensive back. He chose Kentucky over a final list that included Louisville, Missouri, West Virginia, Boston College, Georgia Tech and Cincinnati.
The defensive back is known as a ball hawk as he led the nation with 15 interceptions as a junior last season.
He is the fourth in-state prospect to commit to Kentucky in 2021, including the prospect second-ranked player in four-star wide receiver Dekel Crowdus and the seventh-ranked prospect in three-star quarterback Kaiya Sheron and North Hardin teammate LaVell Wright who is ranked eighth in the state.
Overall, Kentucky has players committed in their 2021 class with Lovett, just the second defensive player joining defensive end Kahlil Saunders.
