According to Rivals’ Sean Callahan, Nebraska sophomore running back Braylon Heard will visit Kentucky this weekend. Heard is currently looking for places to transfer after being unhappy with his lack of playing time at Nebraska. He visited Pitt this week, and will arrive in Lexington today.
Heard is from Cardinal Mooney High School in Youngstown, Ohio, which should sound very familiar to you by now since it’s the alma mater of both Mark Stoops and Vince Marrow, who was on Nebraska’s staff prior to leaving for UK. Coming out of high school, the four-star Heard was ranked the fifth best running back in the nation and the 57th overall player in the 2010 class. Last year, he averaged 6.69 yards per carry in 55 attempts and scored three touchdowns, but was unhappy with his reduced role in the Husker offense.
