    Talked to a high school teammate of his and he said with some development he could be the real deal. Good pickup for a walk on.

    Sooooooo he is a great kid and we are lucky to have him! Not many good receivers at KCD this year

    Number 23(wr) can play too. Fast, and seems to get open easily. He caught most of those touchdowns. Any info on him?

    I actually have known this young man since he was knee high to a duck. I was hoping he would have gone to Trinity. Good kid, good teammate, will be good for UK. He will keep us from ever being in a situation like we were this past year.

    This is a good situation for all parties.

    Glad to have you Robert. Here’s how it works. Many will praise you for coming to UK. Some with other hidden agendas will write trash about how good you aren’t. Go compete with the other QBs and do your communicating on the field.

    Tells me Coach Stoops is still looking for the Big Fish in the little pond. This kid can compete and bring on the kid from Hebron. UK is heading from the minors to the major leagues.

    That’s what it is all about.

    This also says that Stoops likes “Confidence” and Stoops will give a person a chance to show what they can Do. I luv it.

    Cool… Remember playing basketball against him and he definitely is quite the athlete. To anyone talking trash about his stats/hair etc… stop being bitter you didn’t get the chance to play Division 1 football and go back to trolling

    Why do people have to make fun of kids trying to chase their dreams???…This kid BLEEDS blue and is wanting to be a part of the team…Me personally I love his skill set and he throws a great looking ball…I know he doesn’t play against top flight competition , but give a redshirt and 25-30 lbs of muscle and he looks pretty athletic(nice dunk..has some hops)…Welcome aboard Robert and hope you become a star…

    I am thrilled he is coming to Ky. I followed his career while at KCD and he is the real thing!

    Based off the pictures of his arms, someone needs to feed him a few cheeseburgers as well. They say 190 but I don’t think he even looks 190. Looks more 170-17ish. Gonna have to be least 215 at QB to play in the SEC.

    #20…If he is willing to work hard with Coach Korem I think we can see a brand new Robert after a year of redshirting , proper diet and wt training…

    Good Kid. KCD’s AD is a former Vandy OL – knows what it takes in SEC. Heck, Woodson and Lyons, Jr used to work out there and Ragone was the OC a couple years ago – not your usual private school. AD would not have steered him wrong if he did not have the potential down the road. Will take a couple of years in the weight room and getting used to the speed, but could be a great addition down the road. Live the dream!
