United Kingdom lands 4-star linebacker Xavier Peters

Kentucky continues to have great success on the recruiting trail with the latest addition coming on the Fourth of July from OH linebacker Xavier Peters.

Peters is a top-300 player nationally and is ranked the No. 17 outside linebacker in the class, according to 247Sports.

With Peters now set to join UK's class, the Wildcats currently have the nation's No. 14 overall 2018 recruiting class.

It's the second commitment Kentucky received in the last few days as 3-star tight end Keaton Upshaw announced his decision on Saturday.

Reports Manu Vatuvei To Leave The Warriors
Press Association Sport understands Salford are waiting for the 31-year-old to receive his visa before announcing the signing. Warriors veteran wing Manu Vatuvei is off the UK Super League next season according to reports out of England.

Several schools sought Peters but Kentucky was able to win a recruiting battle over Alabama, Tennessee, Southern Cal, Oklahoma, Louisville and several others. His teammate, defensive tackle Tyler Bentley, recently committed to UK. The Cats' roster now includes three other players from the school: offensive lineman George Asafo-Adjei, offensive lineman Kyle Meadows and wide receiver Keyaune Ross.

Peters spent this past week at The Opening, an invitation only competition, in OR with another United Kingdom commit for next season, Quarterback Jarren Williams. Wide receiver L'Christian "Blue" Smith, perhaps the Wildcat's biggest remaining target for the 2018 class, was also in attendance.

Four-star Ohio LB says he'll play for Cats.
