LEXINGTON, Ky. — The UK Football team announced on Wednesday that it's added two more players to its Class of 2021. That brings the total to 21 when you include those who signed in the fall.

The first is transfer Luke Fulton who played previously for Michigan State. The four-star inside linebacker, who attended the same Cardinal Mooney High School as UK Head Coach Mark Stoops and Associate Head Coach Vince Marrow, redshirted in 2019 and didn't play in 2020. He would have four years of eligibility remaining if he chooses. “I’ve known Luke for a long time and watched him play for a long time,” Stoops said. “We’re grateful to add him to our program and the contributions he will bring at inside linebacker.” Fulton chose UK over N.C. State and West Virginia among others.

The second signee is Trevin Wallace out of Jesup, Georgia. The four-star linebacker comes to Kentucky after a stellar high school career. He ranks as the nation’s 35th overall prospect and No. 2 inside linebacker by 247Sports and is also rated as the state of Georgia’s No. 6 overall player. Wallace played multiple positions on both offense and defense but on the defensive side he totaled 96 tackles, 12 tackles for loss, 5 sacks, three forced fumbles and an interception as a senior. “Trevin is as talented an inside linebacker as we have recruited here,” Stoops said. “He jumps off the tape as you watch film. He’s the type of athlete with the potential to make an immediate impact.” Wallace chose Kentucky over Auburn, South Carolina, Ole Miss and Florida State.

Here's an updated list of all players in the Class of 2021 which is rated in the Top 40 by ESPN and 247Sports and includes eight signees who have been rated as four- or five-star players by Rivals.
