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.

AFTRA reaches contract agreement with AMPTP, avoiding possible strike
Separately, SAG-AFTRA has been on strike since October 21 against 11 video game companies over the work performed by voice actors. SAG-AFTRA had extended its negotiations with the producers' alliance after the Friday deadline passed without an agreement.

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.
