The Kentucky Wildcats got off to a fast start in 2015 after they secured a commitment fro Montrell Custis, a 4-star defensive back out of Georgia who picked UK over the Georgia Bulldogs, Auburn Tigers and Tennessee Volunteers. He committed to the Cats via Twitter, but it appears he’s no longer part of the ’15 class, according to Chad Simmons of FOX Sports and Scout.com.
This is a tough loss for UK, as he is quickly rising up the rankings and is one of the top DB prospects in the ’15 class. Ironically, this news comes right as the basketball team got great news with the return of Willie Cauley-Stein.
STRENGTHS: Displays good top end speed and the ability to read and react well to run or pass. Makes nice breaks on the ball and demonstrates good ball skills when attacking. Possesses the ability to flip his hips and run with receivers with excellent change of direction.
AREAS OF IMPROVEMENT: Overall tackling skills require further development. Will benefit greatly by adding playing strength.
BOTTOM LINE: Custis is a quick and versatile athlete that will compete on either side of the football. Continued progress on his run defending and tackling skills should land him on the defensive side of the ball at the next level.
