Class of 2024 twin brothers Jerod and Jacob Smith of Corbin (KY) High flipped their commitments from Michigan to Kentucky Friday night.
“The reason I chose Kentucky is because I wanted to play in the SEC and I wanna be able to be developed and play at the next level,” Jerod said. “Playing in the SEC will ultimately better prepare me for the next step in making the NFL. Another reason was I wanna stay back home and play for my state. I wanna be able to play in front of my family. Another reason I chose Kentucky was my relationship with the staff. It felt more like family to me. Ultimately I felt that Kentucky was the best choice for me to get where I wanna be in life.”
Jacob stated his reason for committing to the Wildcats as well.
“I came home to my state and realized that I need to stay here, for the family and for the people.”
The Bluegrass State defensive linemen join coach Mark Stoops and the Wildcats’ 2024 class. He is accompanied by four-star quarterback Cutter Boley and others.
