CRESTVIEW – There was no suspense regarding Denzel Ware.

Ware, a 4-star prospect at defensive end according to multiple recruiting services, gave his commitment to University of Kentucky football coach Mark Stoops more than a year ago.

On Wednesday, he followed through on that commitment, signing to continue his football career at Kentucky for the next four years.

“I’ve been waiting on this for a long time,” said Ware, a 6-foot-3, 230-pound defensive end, who is part of a Kentucky recruiting class that finished Signing Day ranked at No. 13 nationally by recruiting service “I’m just glad to be finished with recruiting, and now I can focus on working hard and getting ready to play football.”

A two-time Dandy Dozen selection, Ware finished a productive four-year career at Crestview in 2013, and his signing on Wednesday morning capped a whirlwind recruiting process, which featured a commitment to Florida State during his junior year before he finally settled on Kentucky last spring.
