This week marks the beginning of high school football practices across the state of Kentucky. Before Izayah Cummings took the practice field at Louisville Male High School, the UK wide receiver commit caught up with Rivals’ Woody Wommack. Since his commitment, Cummings has grown even closer to Kentucky’s coaching staff.
“It’s been great,” Cummings said. “The relationship I have with the coaches has only gotten stronger since I committed. They’re always hitting me up and not just one or two, guys from the whole staff just to see how I’m doing. It’s pretty good.”
He added, “I feel more comfortable with them and with the program as a whole. I’m trying to get there for visits every time I can.”
One of four wide receivers in Kentucky’s 2020 recruiting class, Cummings said he’s still receiving letters from other schools, but conversations have been cut off with coaches and he doesn’t plan on taking any other visits. Instead, he’s spending his time preparing for the upcoming football season and recruiting others to join the class.
“I’m working on a lot of guys like (four-star defensive back) Devito Tisdale. He’s from Bowling Green and we are scrimmaging each other and I keep telling him we should be playing together.”
You can watch Cummings and Tisdale go toe-to-toe at Bowling Green High School August 16 at 6:00 p.m.
