Badet chooses UK

Badet may also run track for the Cats.

Kentucky's recent successes in the state of Florida continued Friday night when Orlando (Fla.) Freedom 3-star wide receiver Jeff Badet announced for the Wildcats.

UK had been the leader for the one-time South Florida commit since his official visit to Lexington the weekend of Jan. 18. He chose the Cats over scholarship offers from UCLA, Louisville, N.C. State, Iowa State and Wake Forest among others.

The 5-foot-11, 160-pound speedster caught 46 passes for 718 yards and 11 touchdowns as a senior in 2012. He is the 18th known commitment in the 2013 recruiting class and the third wide receiver to join the class.

The Sunshine State product is rated an 86 overall by 247sports and is Mark Stoops' ninth commitment from the state of Florida.

He could be the first of two commitments for the Cats on the night as DeLand (Fla.) 3-star all-purpose back JoJo Kemp is set to announce at 7:15 PM ET.

Badet may also run track for the Wildcats.
