Cats land kicker

Kentucky's fifth verbal commitment in the Class of 2013 came via a specialist on Saturday.

Wedowee (Ala.) Randolph County kicker/punter Austin MacGinnis announced via social network Twitter that he had accepted a scholarship offer from the Wildcats.

MacGinnis8: Committed to the University of Kentucky ! #Wildcat #SEC," he wrote.

According to Chris Sailer Kicking website, MacGinnis is one of the top seven specialists in the nation for 2013. "Austin is a tremendous kicker," Sailer writes on the site. "He has a huge leg and makes kicks with ease off the ground. Kickoffs are DI ready right now. A great competitor that kicks well under pressure. Is going to be a phenomenal DI player. Great pick up for Kentucky."

Stay tuned to CatsPause.com for more on MacGinnis' commitment later this weekend.
