Report: Ukwu a Wildcat
Posted Feb 5, 2008

According to a late evening report from The Tennessean, the Wildcats have added a late signee in Collins Ukwu from La Verge (Tn.) HS.

Ukwu was recruited by Arkansas early in the process, before committing to coach Rick Stockstill at Middle Tennessee. He was offered a scholarship today by UK offensive coordinator Joker Phillips and accepted on the spot, switching his verbal commitment to Kentucky.

Ukwu (6-5, 225) is projected to play defensive end at the next level. He had cancelled official visits to Ole Miss and Arkansas, previously, and had pondered committed to Western Kentucky, before sticking with the Blue Raiders just days ago.

A phone call from Joker Phillips today changed all that. He'll sign with Kentucky, tomorrow, according to the report.
