RECRUITING: Alfonso Smith Commits to Kentucky!

According to his coach, Chris Wolfe, the Wildcats have received a commitment from Alfonso Smith, a 6'2 running back/cornerback from Waggener High School in Louisville.

"Yes, I committed to Kentucky," Smith said. "I committed because of Coach Phillips. When I heard that they had named him offensive coordinator, I knew that was the place for me. He's a great coach and somebody I'm looking forward to playing for."

"No doubt about it - I'm ready to go," Smith continued. "Now, I've just got my visit next weekend."

Smith is the 13th verbal commitment of the 2005 class. Inside Kentucky is reporting tonight, a 14th verbal commitment from Earl Bennett, a 6-foot-1 athlete from Birmingham (AL).
