Bleed Blue Kentucky is reporting that the University of Kentucky Football program has added defensive back Blake McClain from Winter Park, Fla. as the seventh member of its 2013 recruiting class.

According to ESPN.com, McClain is the nation's No. 53 ranked prospect at his position and the No. 157 ranked prospect in the state of Florida. The 3-star recruit is very good in deep coverage situations and can also provide excellent support against the run.

You can watch McClain's highlight reel here and see how he puts his athletic frame and 4.5 40-yard dash speed to good use.

McClain also had offers from South Florida, Arizona, Mississippi State, Boston College, West Virginia, and a host of other schools. In an offseason that has been in short supply of good news for Joker Phillips' program, the ability of his staff to secure a solid defensive back prospect early in the recruiting process is a welcome victory.

It's also far too early to tell if Joker's renewed determination to recruit better in the state of Florida is paying off, but it's always a good to see some early results.
