Dual-threat quarterback Walker Wood committed to Kentucky on Thursday, just a week after receiving an offer from the Wildcats.
The 3-star from Lexington, Ky., has reported three offers thus far, but was long considered a lean to Kentucky, per 247Sports.com. Wood becomes the fifth recruit to verbally commit to the program in the class of 2017.
He is rated as the No. 5 overall player in Kentucky.
