Kentucky received a major commitment Tuesday from a player who has never played college football.

Iowa basketball player Ahmad Wagner announced in March he would leave Iowa City to embark on a college football career, and on Tuesday tweeted his commitment to Big Blue Nation.

Wagner is eligible to play immediately and has two seasons of eligibility remaining, a fact that caused Michigan, Michigan State and “some other top Big Ten programs” to start poking around late in the process, according to Cats Illustrated.

Wagner played football at Wayne High School in Yellow Springs, Ohio, before initially choosing basketball in college. He averaged 3.1 points and 2.6 rebounds in 11.9 minutes per game over a 96-game Hawkeye career. Checking in at 6-foot-7 and 235 pounds, Wagner will start as a wide receiver but seems a natural candidate to play tight end.

His bio said he was a track star in high school. So, he is tall and fast. Just because he is big does not mean he has to play TE. Remember the tall receivers Missouri had when they first came into the SEC? Those guys were tall and fast. I think they were 6'5" and weren't just end zone receivers.

UK had had a few basketball players that I thought should have tried out for football, after basketball.

Will be interesting to see if he makes the adjustment.

He has had 2 years of playing college basketball so he has to be athletic. It's going to be interesting to watch him develope into a SEC football player.
