Watch UK Football Recruits in Upcoming All-American Games

@XavierPeters22 & @DarianJoe

Kentucky has a pair of 2018 football recruits playing in upcoming All-American games.  Xavier Peters will play in tonight’s Under Armour All-American game at 6:00 on ESPN2.  Darian Kinnard is in the Army All-American Bowl this Saturday at 1:00 on NBC.

Peters, a four-star linebacker from Lakota West High School in Cincinnati, was the only committed Wildcat who did not sign during the Early Signing Period.  There are no indications that Peters may potentially flip to another school prior to National Signing Day.  You’ll see him wearing No. 30 during tonight’s ESPN2 broadcast from Camping World Stadium.

Kinnard is the second-highest ranked player in UK’s 2018 class.  The 6-7 340-pound offensive tackle signed with Kentucky in December.  Landon Young made headlines for busting heads at the Alamodome two years ago.  Don’t be surprised to see Kinnard do the same on Saturday in a No. 70 East team jersey.

    Xavier Peters didn’t sign during the early period and is going on an official visit to Florida next weekend, right? That is indication enough to me that flipping to another school is not out of the question. Sure hope he sticks with UK.

      It’s been rumored that he may go on a visit on the 19th but not official. He has been rumored to visit other schools in the past and not visited.
