Kentucky's latest commitment, Jalen Whitlow, gives the 2012 Wildcat recruiting class another difference maker. How could Whitlow help out the Wildcats?

First, Whitlow is physically the kind of player who can make a difference no matter what position he plays on the field. The 6-foot-3, 200-pound quarterback is also a player who can play receiver, linebacker, or safety. With his 4.45 speed and his ability to make people miss, his best position appears to be offense.

According to Scout.com's Andrew Bone, Whitlow accounted for more than 30 touchdowns this year for Alabama power, Prattville on the way to being rated Bone's 31st best player in Alabama.

Originally, he had committed to Arkansas State, but his recruitment picked up late as Ole Miss offered along with Kentucky only two days before signing day. Tennessee and Florida State also showed quite a bit of interest.

On the season Whitlow showed that he is a multi-dimensional talent. He completed 44 of 73 passes for 514 yards and seven touchdowns. He carried the ball 92 times for 693 yards and 13 touchdowns. He also had 12 catches for 165 yards and two more touchdowns.
