Kentucky Football Lands Second Wide Receiver from Georgia

Dan Bodner@KYHoopsBuzzCorrespondent IJune 2, 2011

Just days after a commitment from wide receiver DeMarcus Sweat, the Wildcats picked up a verbal from his teammate and fellow receiver, Shawn Blaylock.

Blaylock is from Stephenson High in Stone Mountain, Ga, and is listed at 5'11", 172 lbs. He will become the fifth player from Stephenson High on Kentucky's roster when he joins the team in 2012.

Blaylock has starred at both wide receiver and cornerback while at Stephenson. It is uncertain right now as to exactly where Coach Phillips will elect to utilize him, and it likely will not be determined until he arrives on campus.

His speed is not his best asset as he is listed as running only a 4.6 second forty-yard dash, but he displays a good deal of strength that helps him to escape press coverage and pick up yards after the catch.

Blaylock's only offers at this time were from Arkansas State and Middle Tennessee State, but he had also received interest from South Florida and Michigan State.

You can see video of him running drills here or follow him on Twitter @GOIN_DEEP18.
