Friday afternoon junior college linebacker Joko Willis announced his commitment to Kentucky. The three-star prospect chose the Wildcats over Mississippi State, Arkansas and Kansas State. Originally from UK's former recruiting pipeline in Lagrange, GA, Willis has spent the 2019 season at Independence Community College in Kansas, a school that gained notoriety on Netflix's Last Chance U. Recruited by Jon Sumrall, Willis' future position coach, earlier this week he explained to KSR how he competes against SEC schools on the recruiting trail in the Deep South. Willis fills a hole at a position of need, inside linebacker. Devon Williams, another 2021 linebacker, previously flipped from the Wildcats to Minnesota. See what the eighth commitment in Kentucky's 2021 recruiting class is bringing to the table by watching him suplex players on the gridiron. [table id=541 /]
