Ryan Timmons will announce his college of choice in one hour. Before the madness, let’s refresh our memories on one of the top players in the state who could send UK’s recruiting class ranking all the way up to #27 if he decides to come be a hero in Lexington.

Timmons was Neal Brown’s top priority from Day One on the job, and with good reason. In 2012, Timmons rushed for 1,260 yards, caught 29 balls for 970 yards, and scored 45 TDs at Division 5A Franklin County. According to ElevenWarriors.com, this is the 2nd year in a row that Timmons has led the nation in yards per touch (23.8 yards) and he also scored a TD every 2.3 times he touched the ball this season. Franklin County’s offense is nearly identical to Neal Brown’s, so that knowledge combined with Timmons’ speed and versatility means he could have an immediate impact at UK. Timmons is exactly the type of playmaker Brown has been looking for to get the Air Raid offense going.
