During Friday night’s showcase camp at Kroger Field, one player stood above the rest in the trenches. Standing 6-feet 5-inches tall, the lengthy athlete quickly made an impression to anyone watching individual drills for outside linebackers.
It turns out, that kid has not yet stepped a foot inside high school.
Keldric Faulk just finished eighth grade. Despite his age, Kentucky did not hesitate to offer him a scholarship after his camp performance.

Kentucky is not Faulk’s first offer. Florida, Tennessee and Penn State have already extended scholarship offers to the talented class of 2023 prospect from Highland Home, Alabama.
Brad White worked extensively with Faulk throughout the camp. Jon Sumrall, Vince Marrow and a plethora of other coaches also took time to talk to Faulk.
He has a few years of football ahead of him. Despite his age, he’s already making plays at the varsity level. Some might question why UK would already recruit such a young Cat, but after watching him do work, his talent is undeniable. Kentucky is wise to connect with Faulk early and often.
