The dice will not be coming out on Saturday. Instead, a potential Yahtzee roll for three-star defensive end Tomiwa Durojaiye will have to wait until tomorrow.
After dealing with some technical difficulties with his commitment video, the UK target decided to push back his official announcement to Sunday.
“Posting my commitment tomorrow between 12-3!” said Durojaiye, adding that his video will be posted to his Instagram page.

Durojaiye originally told KSR that an announcement was coming sometime between 12-4 p.m. ET before later shifting that timeline to 5-6 p.m. ET, and then again to 7 p.m. ET before ultimately pushing his commitment to Sunday.
The three-star senior is set to choose between Georgia Tech, Kentucky, South Carolina, Vanderbilt and West Virginia, among 22 total scholarship offers.
Some of the key factors he accounted for in the decision-making process? Early playing time and player development.
“One of the main things football-wise is early playing time,” Durojaiye said. “For me, I want to come in and have that spring ball, prove myself as a freshman, and at least play some meaningful reps, at least be that first sub-in guy. … Player development in terms of a coach that is going to take my game to the next level, that’s going to make my strengths weapons and anything I’m weak at–before I leave that university I want to be great at it before I go to the next level. Just taking my game to the next level. I would say the biggest thing for me is a staff that is going to help me separate myself from everybody else in the country because I know I’ll be willing to put in that work.”
Durojaiye has made trips to all five schools on his final list, with his most recent being an official visit to Kentucky at the end of July. Looking at his recruiting predictions, there are three consecutive Crystal Balls in favor of the Wildcats over at 247Sports and three consecutive FutureCasts on Rivals.
An announcement is coming, BBN; it just won’t come tonight.
