Nico Firios joins Kentucky's commit parade

The Kentucky Wildcats have made their case to move up ESPN RecruitingNation's class rankings following a big weekend on the trail.

According to multiple sources, four-star inside linebacker Nico Firios (Longwood, Fla./Lyman) has also jumped on board.

Cincinnati, Connecticut, Indiana, Iowa State, Louisville, Memphis, Minnesota, Purdue, Rutgers, South Florida, Southern Miss and Wisconsin also extended scholarship offers to the 6-foot-1, 220-pound prospect. Georgia Tech, Miami (Fla.), Penn State and Vanderbilt showed interest.

Firios' decision comes on the heels of the re-commitment of ESPN 150 defensive end Denzel Ware (Crestview, Fla./Crestview) and the pledges of four-star cornerback Darius West (Lima, Ohio/Lima Central) and safety Mike Edwards (Cincinnati/Winton Woods).

Kentucky has 15 total commitments for 2014.
