Stacey Poole, a 4-star recruit out of Jacksonville, Florida, officially committed to Kentucky after visiting last Saturday, becoming the first verbal for the 2010 class.
Poole is considered the 58th best prospect in the 2010 class and the 7th rated shooting guard in the country.
The Providence high school senior previously announced he would attend Florida, where his father played from 1989-1993, but later changed his mind.
Standing tall at 6'5", 190 pounds, Poole averaged 17.3 points per game last season.
Poole chose UK over South Carolina in a live announcement on ESPNU.
