Yahtzee! Kentucky has landed its highest rated recruit yet in the 2021 class, as four-star offensive lineman Jager Burton committed to the Cats on Sunday.
The 6’4”, 271-pound prospect chose UK over Ohio State, Clemson and Alabama among many more offers. Coming out of Lexington, KY, he is the number one player in the Bluegrass State, number three offensive guard and No. 59 player nationally according to 247 Sports.
Burton is the 16th commitment in the 2021 class for Kentucky, and second from Frederick Douglass High School, joining four-star wideout Dekel Crowdus who is the second-highest ranked player in UK’s class so far.
