YAHTZEE! 2018 three-star QB Kolbe Langhi commits to Kentucky!

When Mark Stoops announced Kentucky football's 2018 recruiting class two weeks ago, he immediately expressed regret for not bringing on a local talent. Today, he fixed that situation. Three-star quarterback and Christian County product Kolbe Langhi has committed to Kentucky as a preferred walk-on. https://twitter.com/KLanghi/status/965735425972342784 The 6-foot-6 lefty is Christian County's all-time leading passer with 9,002 career yards and had 101 total TDs. Back in 2016, Langhi turned heads of the Alabama coaching staff during a camp in Tuscaloosa, where he had the opportunity to do an extended workout for then-Alabama offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin. The current FAU head coach then invited Langhi to tour campus following the personal throwing workout, where he expressed interest in the Hopkinsville, KY native. Over the last year, Langhi visited both Vanderbilt and UofL, but hoped all along for a Kentucky offer. Jeff Drummond and Justin Rowland of Rivals.com broke the news last week that Langhi was finally offered a preferred walk-on from the Wildcat coaching staff, and he had been discussing the option with his family. https://twitter.com/RowlandRIVALS/status/963511482926419968 With Kentucky only bringing on 24 scholarship players in the 2018 class, along with the normal attrition we see each Spring, it's very likely Langhi ends up as a scholarship quarterback this season. The 6-6, 220-pound QB also plays basketball for Christian County, is a member of the Future Business Leaders of America, and also has a 3.75 GPA as a senior. Not too shabby for the newest Wildcat.
