Multliple media outlets are reporting Kentucky has received its first football commitment for 2014. Denzel Ware, a four star defensive end-linebacker from Crestview, FL announced today he will be coming to Lexington. The 6-3, 220 Ware recently decommitted from Florida State and cited his relationship with former FSU assistant and current UK defensive coordinator DJ Eliot as his reason for choosing Kentucky.
Ware chose UK over Florida State, Florida, Alabama, Ohio State, Texas and USC among others. Ware is the 44th best player in the country for 2014 according to one recruiting service, while another has him as the 3rd best outside linebacker in the nation.
