Campbellsville (Ky.) Taylor County three-star offensive tackle Hayes Johnson is staying in-state for his college football career. He announced his commitment to Kentucky on Thursday morning.

Johnson is the No. 695 overall prospect and No. 45 offensive tackle in the 2024 cycle, according to the On3 Consensus, a complete and equally weighted industry-generated average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies. He is also the No. 4 player in Kentucky.

On3 rates Johnson higher than other recruiting services, according to the Industry Comparison. Even though he is not ranked in the 2024 On300, Johnson is the No. 38 offensive tackle in the country and the No. 2 player in Kentucky.

“I love Kentucky,” Johnson told KSR on Dec. 30. “I can remember the 2012 (basketball) championship night sitting there watching with my dad. I can remember the Missouri (football) game when Lynn Bowden just went freaking off and we were sitting in the nose bleeds in the piss-pouring rain. I remember when we broke the streak against Tennessee in football.”

The 6-foot-3, 295-pound recruit is now the first member of the Wildcats’ 2024 recruiting class.
