On Thursday around midday one of the nation's top defensive backs released a top five that includes Kentucky.
Kwantel Raines has been listing Kentucky for a while now, with Steven Clinkscale as his recruiter, but now there's reason to believe the Cats are more of a player for the Rivals250 prospect than it previously seemed.
Kentucky still may not be the favorite to land the nation's No. 219 prospect, but the Cats made Raines' top five along with Penn State, Pitt, West Virginia and Florida. He added, somewhat cryptically, that Maryland and South Carolina are still in the mix but didn't seem as sure of those schools.
His message on Twitter reads, "This is in no way a reflection of any deficiencies (of) any of the other programs. I'm still open to any new opportunities if given. I would just like to narrow my list down to these few schools so I could focus more on just my senior year. I will be committing (sometime) in October!!!"
