According to BigBlue247, Alvin “Bud” Dupree gave his commitment to Joker Phillips to play for the Cats next season. Alvin is a Tight End from Irwinton, Georgia. He also held offers from Georgia Tech and Florida State. Dupree is 6’5, 230 pounds, but with that size also comes good speed at 4.6 forty. Scout.com has him listed as a 3-star and #45 at his position in his class. You can watch some video of him below:
Also in football news, 2-star wide reciever Josh Forrest reconfirmed his commitment to Kentucky according to Jody Demling of the Courier Journal. Forrest had been rumored in taking a visit to Central Florida, but after visiting with Coach Phillips Decided not to take the visit and stay with the Cats
And football lost one recruit today according to Jody Demling. Riyahd Jones(no I didn’t misspell his name) a 3-star CB from Georgia Decided to de commit and open back up his recruiting. Other school interested are Mississippi State, Vanderbilt, Georgia Southern, and UMass.
Interesting rumors are tarting to float around Kentucky’s best committed recruit. Jon Davis from Eastern High School, who is a 4-star tight end is thinking of wearing red. According to Mike Hughes of insidetheville.com says that Davis will switch to the Cards this weekend. I obviously hope this is not true and it hasn’t been confirmed yet, but if this is then this will be a huge blow for Joker. Jon gave his verbal over a year ago and for him to back out now would drop Kentucky far down the rankings in this recruiting class
One more note in Bobby Petrino and John L. Smith were atDixie Heights High School in Ft. Mitchell to watch Zeke Pike play basketball tonight. Pike is a 4-star quarterback in the class of 2012. He already has a ton of offers including a lot of the SEC schools ad has already been invited for the Army High School All American Game next year.
