"Jodie just wrapped up his announcement," said the player's father, Orestes Meeks. "I think the gist of his statement was that he's very excited and it's a privilege to play for a program like Kentucky."
Meeks (6-4, 197) picked the Cats over Alabama and Florida. He is rated the No. 8 shooting guard and No. 34 prospect overall by Rivals.com and joins California guards Michael Porter and Derrick Jasper on UK's 2006 commitment list.
Meeks, a member of the RivalsHoops150, is the eighth-ranked shooting guard in the nation.
