Irby received a scholarship offer from Western Kentucky during a visit back in the spring. The 6-foot-4, 315-pound prospect chose the Hilltoppers over offers from Memphis, UAB, Middle Tennessee, and others.
He becomes the Hilltoppers' 14th verbal commitment for the 2014 class and the second offensive lineman to join the class.
Check out Irby in action from earlier this season as Franklin Road Academy (Tn) visited Goodpasture (Tn) on August 30th:
