2018 four-star linebacker Xavier Peters commits to Kentucky

The Wildcats go into Ohio to nab a good one!

Student Sports

If you haven’t been following Kentucky’s 2018 recruiting class, this might be a good time to start.

As most were celebrating Tuesday’s holiday in a variety of ways, Mark Stoops and Kentucky’s staff were given the news that Xavier Peters, a four-star linebacker from Ohio, would be UK bound next season.

Peters is from West Chester, Ohio, which is about 25 minutes north of Cincinnati and 90 minutes southwest of Columbus. The latter is significant as Peters becomes the second of the state’s eight top recruits who have chosen to leave Ohio (so far).

The fifteenth commit in Kentucky’s class, Peters is the fourth four-star player. As such, Kentucky’s class sits at #21 in the nation at the moment.

Peters had a strong showing at The Opening this past weekend. SB Nation’s Bud Elliott and Alex Kirshner touched on him below.

Peters’ junior year Hudl video can be found below.
