Kentucky has received a commitment from wide receiver DeMarcus Sweat from Stephenson High School in Stone Mountain, Ga.
Sweat committed to Kentucky after performing at a camp in Lexington on Sunday. His firmed up his commitment during a conversation with Wildcats coach Joker Phillips on Sunday night.
“I told Coach Phillips that I wanted to be a Wildcat,” Sweat told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “I said I really wanted to talk to my parents first about it, but wanted to go ahead and commit because I didn’t want to lose that spot if another wide receiver committed. Coach Phillips was great about it. He said, ‘I know what you’re thinking. Don’t worry about it. We got your scholarship. We’ll hold your spot. Talk to your parents and call me back later.”
And that’s when Sweat told Phillips he would be sticking with his commitment to Kentucky.
Sweat is the fourth prospect to commit to Kentucky’s class of 2012.
Stephenson High School now has seven players committed to FBS schools. Five of those players are committed to SEC schools. Stephenson is expected to have 14-17 players sign with FBS schools in February, according to the AJC.
