Remember when Kentucky’s 2023 recruiting class was coming together slowly? That is now officially a thing of the past.

After a very busy July that saw the Wildcats land six verbal commitments, the good times continued in August when four-star linebacker Grant Godfrey committed to Kentucky on Monday. That gave defensive backs coach Chris Collins his first big SEC recruiting win.

The second-year assistant could be recording another big win on the trail this weekend.

Lake Wales (Fla.) High defensive back Jaremiah Anglin (6-0, 180) is the No. 453 ranked prospect in the class of 2023 according to the On3 Consensus, a complete and equally weighted industry-generated average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies. Ranked as a top-100 prospect in the talent-rich Sunshine State, the Central Florida native is set to announce his decision on Saturday.

After visiting Florida State twice this offseason, Mike Norvell’s program was seen as the team to beat for quite some time. That is no longer the case as Kentucky has emerged as the heavy favorite (90.9%) in On3’s Recruiting Prediction Machine to land a commitment from the top-500 prospect.

On3’s Director of Recruiting Chad Simmons logged an RPM pick on Thursday afternoon predicting that Kentucky will land the prospect. Jaremiah Anglin would become the fifth top-500 recruit in Kentucky’s 2023 recruiting class.

Collins got the defensive back on Kentucky’s campus for an unofficial visit on June 15, and the rising prospect would take an official visit to Pittsburgh the following weekend. UCF was also involved in this recruitment. Oklahoma issued a verbal scholarship offer last month. Anglin was at Auburn last weekend for an unofficial visit.

As of now, all signs are pointing to Kentucky landing a defensive back with a 6-3 wingspan and some solid athletic testing. There is some positional versatility, and Anglin should help enhance a rebuilding secondary in Lexington.

For the second time this cycle, Kentucky could record a head-to-head recruiting win over Florida State for a defensive back prospect. Only this time the battle will be won in FSU’s backyard.
