Future Wildcat Roundup: Big Night for Beau

In week three of the Future Wildcat Roundup, the Kentucky kids shine. Beau Allen had a stellar day against the powerhouse that is Covington Catholic, Jager Burton and Dane Key had big days in another Fredrick Douglass blowout, and Jordan Watkins had a big game against Western.

Beau Allen (4* QB) 2020

It was a prime-time matchup when Beau Allen took on the boys from Cov. Cath, and Allen shined under the bright lights. Ahead of taking on Lexington Catholic, Cov. Cath hadn’t allowed a point all season. Enter Beau Allen.

Allen went for 455 yards and six touchdowns with no interceptions. He completed 23 of his 33 passing attempts. However, the Knights would fall in a tight one, 39-38.

John Young (4* OL) 2020

It was a big day for John Young and his offensive linemen, as Christian Academy ran for 310 yards in a 35-20 victory over Eastern. CAL has won 18 straight games.

Izayah Cummings (3* WR) 2020

Izayah Cummings took a back a seat to his other teammates in Male’s blowout victory over St. X, but he made sure to get his catches in too with Vince Marrow in the house. Cummings came down with six catches for 45 yards and a touchdown. According to KSR’s Adam Luckett, who was at the game, Cummings was often used at tight end and out of the backfield, with a couple of drops in between.

Dane Key (WR, Undecided) 2022

The newest Wildcat target racked up for Fredrick Douglass on Friday night. In the first quarter alone, Key had three touchdowns – one receiving and two punt returns – in the blowout win over Lafayette.

Jager Burton (4* OG, Undecided) 2021

It was another big victory for Jager Burton and Fredrick Douglass as they improved to 3-0. If this picture is any indication, Burton dominated on that O-line.

While many schools are still awaiting the announcement from Burton, he took a trip to Clemson this weekend.

Jordan Watkins (3* ATH) 2020

It was a blowout victory for Butler over Western on Friday night, and it was a stellar game for Jordan Watkins. Watkins racked up three touchdowns in the victory over Western.

Earnest Sanders (3* WR) 2020

It was a less than stellar outing for Flint Beecher, as they lost 30-6 with EIGHT turnovers. Despite not seeing the end zone, Earnest Sanders still found a way to make some plays. He finished with 98 total yards — four on two carries, 41 on two receptions, 29 on kickoff returns and 24 on an interception return.

The opposing coach had some high praise for Sanders after the game:

“That kid is an unbelievable, Division I talent, and he’s going to Kentucky for a reason. And he’s an absolute monster.”

We might see some production from Sanders go down a little bit in his senior season, due to the double and triple-teams the wideout has received.

“There were opportunities. There were some misreads tonight. He got doubled and tripled some. I think youth took over with my quarterback some, and he threw up a couple,” Beecher head coach Courtney Hawkins said. “It’ll be a learning experience for my quarterback. He will grow — I think he grew up a couple of years tonight, understanding that you’ve gotta go through your reads. If you go through your reads, you make people respect it, and they can’t double- and triple-team this kid.”

Kalil Branham (3* WR) 2020

While I still can’t seem to pull any stats or footage to how Branham has been performing on Friday nights, he is providing us with all of his workout videos, and I’m here for it. This kid is one of the hardest working recruits I’ve ever seen.

Torrance Davis (3* RB) 2020

It was a MASSIVE day for Torrance Davis, as he broke off four touchdowns in a victory over Lakewood. Davis’ first two touchdowns came inside the ten.

His last two were massive runs. His third touchdown came from 54-yards out, and for the finale, Davis went 80-yards for six.

Kaiya Sheron (QB, Undecided) 2021

While Kaiya Sheron might be flying under the radar Nationally, he is blowing up locally. The Somerset QB looks like he is starting to be recruited by all the Kentucky pipeline school such as Louisville, Purdue, Cincinnati, and Wake Forest. However, Kentucky is still the only team to offer the quarterback despite having no stars. I’m hearing that this guy is hanging in there with all the top guys from the 2021 class, so he might not be our little secret for much longer.

On Friday night, in front of Darin Hinshaw, Sheron picked apart the powerhouse that is Beechwood in a 46-16 victory.

Oh, and he jumped over a guy.

Vito Tisdale (4* S, Undecided) 2020

It was a blowout 56-0 victory for Bowling Green on Friday night. The shutout was due in part to Vito Tisdale’s two interceptions.


Future Wildcat Roundup: Wings Wings Wings


Look, guys, the gangs all here! John Young tweeted this picture of the future Kentucky offense as they watched the Wildcats’ week one victory over Toldeo. We love to see it, and we here at KSR know for a FACT Kalil Branham enjoyed his trip to Lexington.

In week two of the Future Wildcat Roundup, Beau Allen Bounces back, we have the inside scoop on Kalil Branham, and a look into the future with the game between Male and Ballard.

Beau Allen (4* QB) 2020

Indianapolis Howe bused all the way down to Lex-Cath to get the smackdown laid on them, 43-9.

After a less than stellar week one, Allen came back with 242 yards and five touchdowns on 14 of 17 passing. Allen and the Knights have a bigtime matchup next week at Covington Catholic.

Kalil Branham (3* WR) 2020

There wasn’t a lot reported on Branham and his play on Friday night, but the KSR insider scoop has some major news for the three-star wideout:

He freaking loves the wings at KSBar and it’s hard to blame him.

Torrance Davis (3* RB) 2020

Torrance Davis was also in Lexington, but before he made the trip to Kroger Field he had a double-overtime game on Friday night. Garfield Heights would lose 17-10, but Davis scored the only touchdown for the Bulldogs on a 39-yard TD.

Izayah Cummings (3* WR) 2020

It was a look into the future when Male’s Izayah Cummings took on Ballard’s Josh Minkin– the No. 2 DB in the state who committed to Louisville.

Male manhandled the Bruins 41-14, but it was without the efforts of Cumings. Male pounded the ball to victory, only throwing Cummings way once all night, which was broken up by Minkin. After a week one that saw the Kentucky commit grab eight receptions for 177 yards and four touchdowns, Cummings goes quiet in week two.

Earnest Sanders (3* WR) 2020

Earnest Sanders balled out for Flint Beecher (MI) in his season opener. In the blowout win, Sanders had two touchdowns and another one called back on what looked like a flag behind the play. Had it not been for the flag, that would’ve been one remarkable return for Sanders. Just look at the size of this guy, Sanders will be a GREAT addition to the receiving core next year.

Andru Phillips (3* CB) 2020

Andru Pillips had a STELLAR game on defense Friday night. While Phillips’ Mauldin Mavericks lost, they held Hillcrest in check to only 25 passing yards all night. Phillips shadowed Hillcrest’s number one receiver and held him to just four yards. Phillips further proving that Kentucky is turning into DBU.

JuTahn McClain (3* RB) 2020

Fairfield (OH) had an easy go of things against Centerville in a 33-7 victory that was fueled by this McClain touchdown run:

Jager Burton (4* OG, Undecided) 2021

Jager Burton and the rest of the Frederick Douglass Ryan Lemonds steamrolled their way to a 62-14 victory over Tates Creek. Burton was a big part of an offensive line that made way for 274 rushing yards and five TDs on the ground.

His performance must’ve caught the eyes of other coaches as well, as this morning he received an offer from Texas.

Kaiya Sheron (N/A QB) 2021- Undecided

Kaiya Sheron is a name to keep an eye on in the 2021 class. Sheron, who is originally from Ohio, is having a stellar season for the Somerset Briarjumpers.

On Friday he was a major part in Somerset hanging 75 points on Montgomery County in a 75-7 victory. Sheron’s listed as a pro-style QB, but his play is much more than that. He’s a 6-foot-3 scrambling quarterback, who can make throws on the run and also uncork the longball every once in a while. He’s a great improviser and is always making plays on his feet.

I’ve had the pleasure of covering Sheron for the first two Friday night Sport Zones and let me be the first to say this guy is the real deal.

It is my understanding that he was only one offer, and that’s to UK, but I expect him to rack up on a lot more by the end of his Junior season. He was at the game yesterday as well.

Vito Tisdale (4* S) 2020- Undecided

Vito Tisdale and the Bowling Green Purples blew out McCracken County 42-14 on Friday. One would assume they didn’t want to throw Tisdale’s way after a play like this:

Sheesh. Tisdale is announcing his commitment in January.

Keep up with all the recruits all season long here at KSR.
