Kentucky is back at it in the Buckeye State again.

The Wildcats picked up yet another verbal commitment out of talent-rich Ohio on Saturday, adding three-star Lakewood St. Edward wide receiver Alex Stump to their 2015 board.

Said Stump via his ShowTime_Stump Twitter account:

"I am fulfilling a lifelong dream of playing college football. Officially committed to the University of Kentucky!!! #WeAreUK #StoopsTroops"

Stump also held offers from programs like Cincinnait, Georgia Tech, West Virginia, Toledo and Harvard. He had 57 catches for 987 yards and 14 touchdowns as a junior.

Receiver remains a big priority for the staff in 2015. He is the first player at that position to give a verbal to UK.

The Cats have seven solid commitments at this time, five from offensive linemen, one from a linebacker and Stump, who is rated the No. 52 wideout in the nation by Scout.

Stump is the second Ohio prospect to commit to Mark Stoops & Co. in the junior class, joining Kenton offensive lineman Larry Wells. The Cats have signed or received verbals from 16 Ohio players since Stoops arrived in Lexington.

Stay tuned to AllWildcats.com for more details on his commitment and what it means for the rest of this recruiting class as more information becomes available.
