Kentucky Football just added 4* star linebacker Chris Oats out of Cincinnati, Ohio to their 2018 recruiting class. The battle for Oats was perceived to have come down to Ohio State and the Cats. After the loss of Courtney Love graduating and multiple important linebackers entering their senior year in 2018, it was very important for Kentucky to secure talent in this group. Oats will join DeAndre Square as these 2 linebacker additions are among the top 5 of this class (247Sports).
