Barion Brown, the No. 3 college football prospect in the state, committed to Kentucky on Wednesday.

Brown, a 6-foot-1, 175-pound athlete, is the last among the state of Tennessee's top 20 football recruits in the Class of 2022 to announce their college decision.

He announced his decision on Twitter.

Brown's commitment to the Wildcats gives Kentucky three of Tennessee's top 12 football prospects according to 247Sports. He joins Summit's twin brothers Keaten Wade and Destin Wade as Kentucky commitments. Keaten, a linebacker, is the No. 5 prospect from the state while Destin, a quarterback, is ranked 12th.

Brown had 765 rushing yards on 62 carries with 372 receiving yards and 11 total touchdowns entering Pearl-Cohn's Class 4A quarterfinal at Tullahoma, a season-ending 21-7 loss.
