The 6-foot-6, 250-pound, Dubose has only played football for one year, but certainly impressed college recruiters. In addition to Kentucky, he held offers from Michigan State and West Virginia.
"Tymere has committed to Kentucky," Youngstown Christian assistant coach Nick Wagner stated. "He actually committed to Kentucky Thursday evening and we were going to wait and announce it next Wednesady, but we have decided to not have a press conference."
