A day after one of the state’s top skill players visited UK’s campus, Kentucky is hosting one of the state’s best defensive lineman for an unofficial visit.
In the middle of a Kentucky recruiting blitz, Louisville Moore’s J.J. Weaver is receiving the blue carpet treatment from the UK coaching staff. The No. 6 player in the state, the 6’6″ 230-pounder is considered one of the 25 best defensive ends in the country.

It’s not Weaver’s first drive down I-64. A guest for Kentucky’s Junior Day, he left the January visit with a scholarship offer. Within two weeks Weaver picked up offers from Miami and Georgia.
As of today, Louisville is considered the favorite for Weaver’s services, with Purdue not far behind. There’s plenty of time for Kentucky to make up for lost time, and that’s exactly what they plan on doing today with the physical pass rusher.
