Kentucky got a football commitment for the 2012 class this weekend as JD Harmon of Paducah Tilghman committed to the Cats, according to Aaron Cordero of Bleed Blue Kentucky. BBK says that Harmon will pay his own way initially before going on scholarship, presumably so he can enroll early in June. Harmon is a 2-star prospect who played both ways in high school, and is listed as an athlete by recruiting services. He is not a heralded prospect, but apparently runs a 4.5 in the 40 so there is that. He’s also from Paducah, and if there’s one thing we know about Paducah it’s that they produce the highest quality people in the state, including but not limited to yours truly.
There were several recruits visiting UK over the weekend and if Max Smith’s thoughts are any indication, they should all commit. There will no doubt be some more news trickling in this week as Joker and the staff close out the 2012 class so stay tuned. What’s that? This is a football post so you already tuned out? I guess I knew that already.
