Dodge City (Kan.) Community College linebacker-defensive end Cedric Kroger verbally committed to Kentucky Monday and plans to sign with the Wildcats Wednesday.
He had indicated after his visit to UK that he was leaning to signing with the Wildcats. He had scheduled a visit to Alabama-Birmingham, but it was canceled because of weather problems.
He had 70 tackles and 8.5 quarterback sacks last year.
He'll enroll for the second semester at UK and will go through spring practice.
