Kentucky picked up two commitments on Wednesday night with a little bit of name value.
Rayshad and Rahsaan Lewis, sons of Super Bowl champion Ray Lewis, announced that they are transferring to the Kentucky football program.
Here are the tweets from the Lewis brothers announcing that they are taking their talents to Lexington:

Rayshad first played at Utah State, where he managed 40 receptions for 476 yards in his freshman year. Then in 2017 he transferred to Maryland and playing a plethora of positions in 22 total games for the Terrapins.
At the time that Rayshad Lewis was at Utah State, UK wide receiver coach Jovon Bouknight was at the same instructing position as an Aggie before taking over at Kentucky.
Rayshad’s brother Rahsaan started his career at UCF in 2018 where he appeared in seven games and totaled four tackles. He then transferred to FAU last season and played a few games as a kick returner, but the school was allowed to redshirt him since he only appeared in four games.
Both prospects are very good athletes that can contribute all over the field for the Cats, and maybe get a celebrity siting of Ray Lewis at Kroger Field post-Coronavirus? Let’s hope so.
