The names change but the overall theme is the same. For most of the year we could have written this about Joker Phillips’ football recruiting class. “(Blank) committed to UK today to play for Joker Phillips and Kentucky. He is an unbelievably quick (insert position here) from Georgia who picked Kentucky because he liked the family atmosphere sold by Joker and his staff.” Today was another, as Ashley Lowery of Georgia picked the Cats over the Illinois Fighting Zooks, who also wanted him very badly. Lowery is another speed demon, this time at Safety, although Kentucky Ink (who reported the commitment) says that he is likely to move to Outside Linebacker in college. He is a 3 star commitment and is one of the more highly touted to verbal to UK so far.
I know this is a guy the staff really wanted. There will be some celebration at the Annual UK football player’s cornhole tournament with the staff that is taking place as we write this.
