Warren East 2015 linebacker/running back Eli Brown announced Monday he’s verbally committed to Kentucky.
The 6-foot-3-inch, 195-pound prospect, who’s ranked the No. 110 recruit nationally in his class by Rivals, broke the news on his Twitter account.
“Guess its time to get the word out i am now committed to University of Kentucky!! #bbn,” Brown wrote Monday night.
Brown decommitted from Vanderbilt in October after giving the Commodores a verbal pledge in June.
His list of offers has swelled since then. He’s reported to Rivals other offers from Ohio State, Southern California, Penn State, Ole Miss and Western Kentucky.
Brown had 50 tackles through 10 games for Warren East as a junior, along with 1,186 rushing yards and 15 touchdowns on 132 carries.
He’s currently rehabbing from a torn ACL suffered in the regular-season finale against Logan County. He posted on Twitter earlier this month that he’d been cleared to run at practice.
Brown is rated a four-star prospect, the No. 8 2015 outside linebacker in the country and the No. 2 overall player in Kentucky in the class by Rivals.
