After stopping by Trinity to see James Quick, Neal Brown may head to Franklin County on Thursday to check in on Ryan Timmons, the talented wide receiver/running back/return specialist. According to the Courier-Journal’s Steve Jones, Timmons has also been invited to Lexington on Saturday to tour campus, meet the staff, and attend the UK/Lipscomb game. Timmons’ coach Chris Yancy says that he can tell Brown and his staff are keen on signing the talented four-star recruit:
“I feel personally that Ryan is a big priority for them, just through conversation,” Tracy said. “… I think they’re trying to form a relationship with him, so that they feel comfortable and Ryan feels comfortable them, which I think he will in that offense.”
Timmons called Brown on Monday to introduce himself and the two discussed how Timmons could fit in Brown’s system, which is very similar to the one he played under at Franklin County:
“It’s good for me as a wide receiver,” Timmons said on Monday. “He said they were going to try to throw the ball a lot more, and it would be good for me to catch a lot of balls and be able to make plays in space. That’s a great thing that I heard from him.”
Get ’em, Neal.
