Stalker, who is 6-foot-2 and 210 pounds, received the offer this week, according to Lakota West head coach Larry Cox. Stalker also plays basketball and runs track for Lakota West.

In February 2012, on National Signing Day, Stalker’s older brother Cole, who also was a linebacker, signed on to play football at Findlay University.
Since UK hired Mark Stoops as its head coach in late November, the SEC school has been targeting players from Lakota West High School. In February, senior offensive tackle Kyle Meadows signed with UK. Then, in April, junior running back Mikel Horton verbally committed to UK. Both Meadows and Horton had numerous offers from other major Division I programs.
