Class of 2024 interior offensive lineman Marc Nave of Toledo (OH) Central Catholic announced his commitment to Kentucky Thursday afternoon.

The 6-foot-5, 310 pounder was previously committed to Ohio State.

“The development from coach Yenser and him being a former NFL offensive live coach sold me. An opportunity to come in and have a shot at getting playing time early in the SEC was another big factor. The environment and people are amazing.”

His relationship with the coaching staff and their plan for him played a role in his decision as well.

“Coach Marrow and coach Yenser are great coaches and they are even better people. I’ve built a very good relationship with Marrow and Yenser and they have with my family as well. I would say I’m closest to them two and their plan for me is to come in as a true freshman and make an impact.”

The Buckeye State offensive lineman joins coach Mark Stoops and the Wildcats’ top 25 2024 class. He is accompanied by four-star EDGE Brian Robinson Jr., four-star quarterback Cutter Boley, and others.
