Kentucky football landed a program-changing commitment from four-star QB Cutter Boley and here are three thoughts on the move for the Wildcats. 

Most of the elite quarterbacks in the 2024 college football recruiting class are committed and now, elite QBs are coming off the board in 2025 too following the commitment of four-star Cutter Boley to Kentucky football on Thursday.

Kentucky football isn’t exactly known for recruiting elite quarterbacks. The Wildcats have landed some talented players in the transfer portal such as Will Levis and most recently, Devin Leary, but this is a big-time high school commitment.

The 6-foot-5 quarterback is ranked 72nd overall according to the 247 Sports composite rankings in the 2025 class, as well as sixth among quarterbacks.

There have been questions about whether or not Boley will reclassify to the 2024 class, and we know now that he will according to an announcement he made, which could adjust his ranking. Still, it’s a big get for Kentucky, and here are three thoughts on his commitment

One of the biggest commitments in Kentucky football history

This isn’t an over-exaggeration, Boley is ranked as the fifth-highest prospect to ever give a verbal pledge to Kentucky football and is the top-ranked quarterback to ever pledge to play for the Wildcats, at least in the era of the 247 Sports composite rankings.

The fact is, Kentucky has only had a few blue-chip quarterbacks commit over the years, so this is a real sign of progress for Mark Stoops and company. Many of the top 10 recruits in Kentucky history have been recruited during the Stoops era.

Kentucky does need to take the next step but the past few seasons have proven this is a legitimate program to deal with going forward and the commitment of Boley only further reinforces that idea.
