Brebeuf Jesuit (Ind.) OT Jon Toth on his decision to become a Wildcat.

Kentucky continued building it's impressive 2012 class today with Brebeuf Jesuit offensive tackle Jon Toth, their second commitment from the Indianapolis area.

"I was thinking about what they had to offer and just coming to the conclusion that it was the right time to commit and I can go to school for five years there and play football there," Toth said.

At 6'5, 290-lbs, Toth can play a couple positions, but says the Wildcats plan to keep him at his natural position of offensive tackle. He says head coach Joker Phillips and company were happy to hear they had another big man on board.

"They were excited because I think it's the fourth commitment this week and their fourth offensive lineman commitment."

Another key figure in the process was offensive line coach Mike Summers, who Toth worked with on his visit to Lexington.

"The offensive line coach, when I went to camp, I really liked how he coached. He wasn't a yell in your face kind of guy but he got in your face if you didn't do something right and he showed you how to do it the right way and made sure you did it the right way."

Jesuit has built a nice program over the last few years, and to have a player off to the SEC is significant for the school, and Toth says he is glad recruiting is over and he will be playing major college football.

"It's exciting. It's really exciting."
