Kentucky’s latest quarterback commit wants the Big Blue Nation to know he’s here for the long haul.
This morning a pair of interviews with Scalzo were released by Rivals’ Justin Rowland and SEC Country’s Joe Mussatto. Each interview ended with a question about the previous UK quarterback pledges that de-committed. Scalzo gave the same response to both.
“That’s not me. I stay true to my word,” he told Mussatto. “I’m 110 percent committed to Kentucky and I don’t care if Alabama comes to my door knocking. Nothing’s gonna change my mind. All the fans out there, just know that I’m not gonna do what these past quarterbacks have done these last few years.”
He went one step further with Rowland, and even took a shot at Alabama in his response. Rowland asked: “If Nick Saban calls you tomorrow and asks you to win his sixth, seventh and eighth national titles there, what would you say?”
Scalzo replied, “I would say, ‘I’m going to win a national championship at Kentucky.'”
Scalzo’s predecessors shared a similar sentiment while committed to Kentucky. Mac Jones frequently Tweeted things along the lines of “100-percent committed,” while Jarren Williams said he was shutting down his recruitment after his second commitment to UK, even though he eventually flipped to Miami.
Take Scalzo’s comments for what you will, however, I have a feeling you’ll enjoy the interviews with the South Florida quarterback. You’ll discover his father played football at Clemson, he’s an adrenaline junky who loves skydiving and much more.
