LEXINGTON — Kentucky football's in-state recruiting momentum continued Friday with a commitment from Bowling Green tight end Jordan Dingle.

Dingle's commitment gives Kentucky pledges from each of the top three prospects in the state's 2021 class, according to the rankings. UK previously landed commitments from Frederick Douglass teammates Jager Burton and Dekel Crowdus, the top two Kentucky high school seniors in Rivals' rankings. The Wildcats also hold a commitment from North Hardin safety Jordan Lovett, the No. 5-ranked player in the state.

ESPN rates Dingle as a four-star prospect. He is rated as a three-star recruit by Rivals and 247Sports.

Dingle had reported offers from Louisville, Ohio State, Purdue, Virginia Tech, Northwestern, Maryland, Arkansas, Pittsburgh, South Carolina, West Virginia, Georgia Tech and others. His older brother Justice Dingle, who was a four-star prospect in the class of 2018, is a sophomore linebacker for Georgia Tech.

The commitment comes at a position of need for Kentucky, which had no other tight ends pledged to its 2021 class and will likely lose senior starter Justin Rigg after the season.

Dingle was an honorable mention all-state selection by the Courier Journal as a junior. He has caught 27 passes for 346 yards and two touchdowns in seven games for Bowling Green this season.
