The Kentucky Wildcats were one of several SEC teams who hauled in 2018 recruits in the last two days. The Wildcats were lucky enough to get multiple commits, as they landed two three-star players in the last two days.

The first commit that Mark Stoops scored was LiAllen Dailey. Dailey committed to the Wildcats on Monday.

He’s a three-star wide receiver out of Pinson, Alabama who boasted offers from the Louisville Cardinals, Arkansas State Red Wolves, Toledo Rockets and UAB Blazers. Listed at 6-foot-3, 196 lbs., Dailey is ranked 644th overall in the class of 2018 and 106th among all wide receivers. In the state of Alabama, he ranks as the 20th overall prospect in a rather loaded group of players. He made a name for himself in his senior season, catching an AHSAA-record 23 touchdowns en route to a state title.

The next commit that came down the wire for Kentucky was offensive tackle Nick Lewis.

Lewis is a three-star talent out of Jacksonville, Florida. An attendee of The Bolles School, Lewis is listed at 6-foot-9, 348 lbs. and ranks 696th overall in 2018. He is the 53rd-ranked offensive tackle in his class and 110th overall player in the football-rich state of Florida. He is a former Washington State Cougars commit who boasted offers from the likes of the Cincinnati Bearcats, Maryland Terrapins, Georgia State Panthers, among many others.

Dailey and Lewis join four-star outside linebacker Xavier Peters as the only unsigned commits right now for Kentucky. Should that be take care of, UK’s class would balloon to 23. They rank 26th in the nation as of right now and eighth in the SEC.
