Kentucky loses Davis to Illinois

The day didn't start very well for Kentucky when linebacker Lamar Dawson, one of the state's top prospects, signed with Southern California.

It only got worse later in the afternoon when the Wildcats' top commitment, tight end Jon Davis of Louisville, had a change of plans and signed with Illinois. Davis was Kentucky's only ESPNU 150 commitment.

So with Dawson and Davis both choosing to leave the state, the Wildcats missed out on the state's two most highly recruited prospects. They were able to get offensive linemen Darrian Miller and Zach West, both ranked among the top 25 offensive tackle prospects in the country by ESPN.

Here's a look at Kentucky's confirmed signees for the 2011 class.
