Yahtzee! Kentucky Lands In-State DB Jordan Lovett

May 20, 2020

Vince Marrow has made North Hardin high school a priority, reeling in his third commit in two years from the school - this time in 3-star Jordan Lovett. Lovett, who led the state of Kentucky in interceptions last year with 15 picks, is listed at 6-foot-2 and has the requisite length of a prototypical safety in the Mark Stoops defense. Lovett joins 2020 teammate La'Vell Wright as well as 2019 freshman Octavius Oxendine as the third North Hardin player to commit to the Cats.

As a safety, Lovett clearly has the ball skills to cause turnovers, racking up 15 interceptions in his junior season. When watching his film, he transitions into a wide receiver on deep throws, high-pointing the ball and often making the catch intended for the player on offense. Lovett uses his ability to cover ground and his unteachable length to make plays on the ball, whether it is in the air or with the ball carrier. Lovett isn't afraid of contact either, displaying a willingness to tackle, which will be important when transitioning to a physical league like the SEC.

While he is Kentucky's 9th commitment in the 2021 class, he is just the second defensive player to join the class. He joins Alabama defensive end, Kahlil Saunders, on the defensive side of the ball and continues to paint the state of Kentucky blue when it comes to recruiting. Vince Marrow is done at North Hardin for the year, but that doesn't mean he doesn't have more in-state talent to recruit. Jager Burton, the top-rated offensive lineman in the state, tweeted out that he plans on enrolling early wherever he goes and would be a massive get for the Cats. Burton is likely down to Ohio State and Alabama in addition to his hometown team. Jordan Dingle, a 4-star tight end from Bowling Green, is also considering the Wildcats and would likely be the top option at the position.
