UK Football picks up commitment from Florida wide receiver

06/27/2016 08:05 PM

Josh Ali, a three-star wide receiver in the class of 2017, has committed to the University of Kentucky. Ali hails from Hollywood, Florida. Co-offensive coordinator Eddie Gran was the lead recruiter for Ali, and Ali chose Kentucky over Illinois, NC State and Louisville among others. Last season, Ali had 56 catches for 865 yards and 13 touchdowns. Ali becomes the tenth recruit in the 2017 class and comes a little over a week after wide receiver Russ Yeast announced his decommitment from Kentucky.
