The Kentucky Wildcats added a pair of linebackers during Wednesday’s national signing day as they’ve added Michigan State transfer Luke Fulton and four-star high school recruit, Trevin Wallace.

Fulton comes to UK as a redshirt sophomore as he did not play in 2020 but in 2019 played on special teams for the Spartans. 

He played his high school football at Cardinal Mooney High School in Youngstown, Ohio, which is the same high school attended by UK head coach Mark Stoops and recruiting coordinator Vince Marrow.

“I’ve known Luke for a long time and watched him play for a long time,” Stoops said in a press release. “We’re grateful to add him to our program and the contributions he will bring at inside linebacker.”

Wallace comes to Lexington from Jesup, Georgia’s Wayne County High School. He was a consensus four-star recruit who 247 sports ranks as the 35th prospect in the entire nation in their top247 rankings.

“Trevin is as talented an inside linebacker as we have recruited here,” Stoops said. “He jumps off the tape as you watch film. He’s the type of athlete with the potential to make an immediate impact.”

With Fulton and Wallace on board, the Wildcats have added much-needed depth at the middle linebacker position as Jamin Davis, who led the team in tackles last season, declared for the 2021 NFL Draft and Chris Oats will be sidelined for the foreseeable future due to an undisclosed medical condition.
