This news isn't too surprising, but it still stings nonetheless. Highly-ranked class of 2022 cornerback Jeremiah Caldwell announced through Twitter on Sunday that he has decommitted from the University of Kentucky and fully reopening his recruitment. The 6-foot-2, 175-pound defensive back from Belleville, MI, initially committed to the Wildcats back in January but his status with Kentucky became a question mark once his lead recruiter, defensive backs coach Steve Clinkscale, took a job at Michigan in the same role. Caldwell is considered a high three-star prospect by 247 Sports and a four-star by Rivals. https://twitter.com/j_caldwell7/status/1421903202862129159
First I would like to thank the staff at the University of Kentucky for giving me the opportunity to come and play and be apart of their amazing program. When I had committed a few months ago I felt like this was the right choice for me and my family..... With a lot of time and thinking... I will be decommitting from the University of Kentucky and making my recruitment back 100% open. Thank you BBN nation for all the support.
Once Clinkscale arrived at Michigan back in May, he didn't waste long reaching out to the prospects he developed relationships with at Kentucky. The Wolverines extended an offer to UK wide receiver target and Lexington native Dane Key not long after Clink's arrival and then did the same with current Kentucky commit Andre Stewart. Not long after Clinkscale left for Michigan, communication between Kentucky and Caldwell apparently subsided. He picked up his offer from Michigan in April and KSR reported in early June that Clinkscale and Michigan had been reaching out to Caldwell. The rising senior at Belleville High School also holds offers from Tennessee, Michigan State, and Toledo. Caldwell was the first class of 2022 commit for head coach Mark Stoops and company, and now he's the first to back off that decision. Kentucky now has 11 verbal commitments from the class of 2022.
