Well, the weekend is starting off pretty good for the Cats. 3-star DT/OT Lovell Peterson has just committed to Kentucky. Peterson is part of the Ohio pipeline that was so important for Kentucky to recruit. Stoops has owned the state so far and doesn’t look to be close to done. Here’s a profile I did of Peterson a couple weeks ago after looking at his film:
High School: Wayne (OH)
Overview: With the tandem of Warford and Smith heading for the NFL, there’s a definite void in the interior of the Cats’ offensive line. Peterson, a two-way player in high school (defensive tackle), will play either center or guard at the next level. Looking at his tape, his main objective in the running game is to absolutely punish linebackers… and he does it well. Peterson is an aggressive, interchangeable offensive lineman that would be a great signing. He also recently made a trip to Lexington.
Some other huge news… KSR has learned that Franklin County WR Ryan Timmons has cancelled his Ohio State visit. Timmons has been looking for an offer from OSU for a while and maybe this is him giving up on the process. This is great news, as Kentucky was pretty much neck and neck with Ohio State for his services.
Come on down?
