West Jessamine junior offensive lineman Eli Cox announced on Twitter Tuesday that he had landed a scholarship offer from Kentucky.
“Extremely blessed to receive an offer from the University of Kentucky,” the 6-3, 290-pound Cox posted on Twitter.
He already had at least nine scholarship offers including Cincinnati, Marshall, Liberty, Ball State, Toledo, Austin Peay, Cornell and Western Michigan.
Cox started emerging on the national radar about a year ago when he got an invitation to the Rivals 3 Stripe Camp after an impressive showing at the Rivals New Speed Combine in Ohio.
