Kentucky landed the top prospect in the Blue Grass State when forward Tyler Riggs out of Louisville signed a letter of intent with the Wildcats.

Riggs, the 2009 Kentucky State Tournament MVP, led St. Xavier to three state titles, totaling 66 goals and 23 assists. He also has played for Javanon.

"Tyler brings a quality that we have been lacking the last couple of years here," UK coach Ian Collins said. "He is a true finisher who has scored goals his entire career. We anticipate that trend continuing and think he will score a lot of goals here at Kentucky."
Other signees: defender Dylan Asher (Richardson, Texas), midfielder Ryan Costen (Lewisville, Texas) and forward Craig Heard (Northampton, England).

"We are very excited about our group of spring signees," Collins said. "We feel like all of these players have the ability to contribute early in their collegiate careers. We lost some talented and experienced players from a year ago and this group is going to have the opportunity to fill some major roles on our team. We anticipate more signings in the very near future to add this talented group."
Asher and Costen played on the same club team, Solar.
