Four-star athlete Ryan Timmons from Franklin Country High School announced he would attend UK at a 1 p.m. press conference at the school.

The 5-foot-11 wide receiver is the fifth best prospect in the state of Kentucky, per Rivals.com.

Timmons becomes the fifth four-star recruit, by ESPN, that head coach Mark Stoops has garnered in his first year in Lexington.

Stoops now has 21 commits from the class of 2013, with four spots left open on the eve of signing day.
