Four-star Ohio prep safety Moses Douglass, who has over 30 Division I scholarship offers, announced on Twitter Saturday that he was committing to Kentucky.
His father, Maurice Douglas, is a former UK defensive back (1984-85) who went on to play in the National Football League. Maurice Douglas now coaches his son at Springfield High School in Springfield, Ohio.
Moses Douglass is UK’s third verbal commitment in the 2019 recruiting class. The others are four-star safety Keontra Smith and three-star outside linebacker KD McDaniel.
The 6-2, 180-pound Moses Douglas is ranked among the nation’s top 20 safeties and among the top 325 players nationally.
“I am so grateful to God for blessing me with the ability to play football,” Douglass posted on Twitter Saturday. “I want to personally thank the 31 schools that offered me football scholarships. I would like to announce that I am committing to the University of Kentucky.”
Douglas had a scholarship offer from Alabama along with ones from other schools such as Michigan, Louisville, Ole Miss, Michigan State, Pittsburg, Purdue, Iowa, Iowa State and Indiana.
