Kentucky’s 2023 recruiting class got stronger on Wednesday with the addition of four-star tailback Jamarion Wilcox. Taking on 6A Georgia defenses, Wilcox went into beast mode during his senior season rushing for over 2,000 yards. All that talent will now help the Wildcats take down SEC competition.
WHAT KENTUCKY IS GETTING
The Wildcats are getting a difference maker in the backfield. Wilcox chomped up 2,382 all-purpose yards during his senior season racking up 30 total touchdowns. Pound for pound, one could argue that Wilcox is one of the hardest tailbacks in the 2023 class to bring down. He gets yards after contact with great balance and power doing what he can to move the chains. His field vision and cuts are an equally impressive part of his game.
WHY THIS IS BIG FOR THE WILDCATS
Keeping pace with all the fantastic talent entering into the SEC year after year, landing a player of Wilcox’s caliber speaks to the future of the program. Kentucky head coach Mark Stoops has repeatedly shown he will change his approach to the game depending on the talent he has on the roster. With Wilcox in Lexington, the Wildcats have a future 1,000-yard performer on the roster who will help them win games.
Along the recruiting trail, Kentucky went head-to-head with Auburn, Ohio State, and Clemson for Wilcox.
