2017 defensive end Chris Whittaker has committed to Kentucky, according to 247 Sports’ Ryan Bartow.

Whittaker, a Florida native, was originally committed to Central Florida but decided to flip his commitment to Kentucky after his visit in Lexington this weekend.

He becomes the 15th commitment in the 2017 class and is the second defensive end in the class. Whittaker is unranked on rivals.com, but is tabbed a three-star recruit.

We will have more on Whittaker Monday night on KSTV.
