UK Football

Denzel Ware a def. end from (Crestview, Fla.) was initially Kentucky's first football commit from the 2014 class, but Ware withdrew his commitment in April only to re-commit on Sunday, June 9. Depending on what scouting service you look at, Ware is ranked as the no. 45 to 80 prospect in the country. The 6-foot-3, 230-pound defensive end is the highest-ranked player (no. 45 according to 247Sports.com) among Kentucky's commits. Ware's first commitment was to Florida State before switching to Kentucky when Mark Stoops and D.J. Eliot (defensive coordinator) moved from Tallahassee to Lexington. Ware, UK's 12th commit from the 2014 class, also has offers from Florida, Notre Dame, Ohio State and Texas among others.
