Braylon Heard will visit this weekend

HEARD, BRAYLON 1429

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.

Watch him work and make him feel welcome:

    This guy would transform the offense on day one. He is a beast. He has speed, balance, and the toughness to run between the Tackles. He I love his feet after the first hit. If he can catch he would be a monster in the new offense. If he can catch the UK staff needs to make this happen right now. Period.

    Tyler thanks for not saying “watch him do work” or “do work, son” or any other stupid blown out saying along those lines. I was pleasantly surprised.
