Yahtzee! 2021 WR Chauncey Magwood Commits to Kentucky

April 22, 2020

The Wildcats have their fourth 2021 commit, securing the services of slot receiver Chauncey Magwood. While he is just a three-star recruit, Magwood had a variety of power five offers, including multiple SEC, ACC, and Big 10 offers. Magwood projects as a slot receiver in college, but will likely play QB for his high school team in his senior year. 

With his versatility on the offensive side of the ball, the immediate comparison jumps to Lynn Bowden, and it isn't far off. Magwood also is a talented corner, so it is clear that he is a great athlete. Filling into the Lynn Bowden-role in the offense was a major part of Kentucky's pitch to Magwood, who could be an electric pass-catcher out of the slot. He flashes a good burst in his routes while using his body to create separation at the catch point. While he likely projects to the slot at Kentucky, his film has him often lined up on the outside, where he shows the ability to set up defenders and break off his routes. He is a major target for his team in the red zone, where he shows a large catch radius, making several difficult touchdown catches that require an impressive amount of body control. 

Jon Sumrall was the primary recruiter for Magwood, Sumrall's third commitment since joining the UK staff. Kentucky will likely take at least two or three more wide receivers, so they aren't close to done at the position. The staff has been heavily pursuing Fredrick Douglass standout Dekel Crowdus, along with his friend and teammate Jager Burton. 

Magwood joins quarterback Kaiya Sheron and linemen Paul Rodriguez & David Wohlabaugh as the fourth commitment for the Wildcats, all on the offensive side of the ball.
