October 3, 2005Four-star Norcross (Ga.) guard Jodie Meeks gave his verbal commitment to the Kentucky Wildcats during a press conference at his school on Monday.
"Jodie just wrapped up his announcement," said the player's father, Orestes Meeks. "I think the gist of his statement was that he's very excited and it's a privilege to play for a program like Kentucky."
Meeks (6-4, 197) picked the Cats over Alabama and Florida. He is rated the No. 8 shooting guard and No. 34 prospect overall by Rivals.com and joins California guards Michael Porter and Derrick Jasper on UK's 2006 commitment list.
Meeks, a member of the RivalsHoops150, is the eighth-ranked shooting guard in the nation.
