Sources close to Highlands High junior quarterback Patrick Towles have confirmed has committed to Kentucky.

Patrick Towles became Kentucky's third commitment for the 2011 class, joining Josh Harris and Thomas Chapman on the board. The 6-foot-5, 230-pounder lead Highlands to the state championship this season, their second in a row.

On the season Towles threw for 2471 yards and 21 touchdowns. He also rushed for 882 yards and 18 touchdowns.

“It was great. I’m very fortunate to be in the program I’m in and am a better football player because of it,” he said. “I played well (this season), but my success was the result of a lot of hard work by my offensive linemen,” he continued.

“Coach (Dale) Mueller preaches that we all need to get bigger, stronger and faster. Other things come easier when you’re working on these three things,” said Towles. “I would love t play at 235 or 240 next year; as long as I can maintain my mobility which I believe I can do,” Towles said.

Towles had offers from Illinois, Louisville, Cincinnati and Vanderbilt.

KSR will have quotes from Towles in the near future.
