Looks like the weekend is ending on an upswing. Javess Blue, a JUCO wide receiver, has committed to Kentucky. Blue, who was also considering offers from Arizona State, Mississippi State, Texas A&M, and West Virginia, is rated four stars by ESPN and could start for Kentucky next year. According to our own Rashawn Franklin:
This JUCO WR (Butler County C.C., Kansas) is one of the more sought after prospects in this class. He is a big wide receiver with great hands. Blue is also a precise route runner, who has the strength to shake off would-be tacklers to get yards after the catch. He’d be a great addition to Kentucky’s offense… and ready to contribute immediately. He and offensive coordinator Neal Brown are familiar with each other from his visit to Texas Tech in early December.
ESPN also calls Blue “an explosive playmaker as an outside threat and punt return specialist” with “the skill set to be an immediate contributor and possible impact guy in the right situation.”
