According to Steve Jones of the Courier Journal, Ryan Timmons enjoyed his unofficial visit to Kentucky this weekend. Timmons still plans to make an official visit to Kentucky in the month of January. Timmons was one of many football recruits on campus yesterday for visits.
KSR’s Nick Roush went into some detail on KSR College about why an in-state player like Ryan Timmons would be a huge get for Mark Stoops and his new coaching staff.
“While Mark Stoops hasn’t pulled off an immediate Cal-esque recruiting class (Sorry, no football version of John Wall), he is doing one thing he promised in his introductory news conference: “Obviously we’re going to recruit Kentucky hard and take care of our home.”
Yesterday Franklin County superstar Ryan Timmons paid a visit to campus and attended the basketball game. Timmons’ speed (4.45 40-yard dash) and athletic ability make him a fun player to watch. His numbers in the air and on the ground this fall were pretty astounding.He only caught 24 passes, but MADE 16 OF THEM TOUCHDOWNS and gained 827 yards (that’s 35.5 yards per catch for you math majors). On the ground he picked up 1004 yards and scored 21 TDs while keeping his yards per carry at 20.08. Timmons’ best stat line?Timmons scored 50% of the time he had the ball (37 Touchdowns on 74 touches).
Timmons was able to put up big numbers because of his athleticism and Franklin County’s style of play. They conveniently run an “identical” offense to new offensive coordinator Neal Brown’s. Timmons’ visit came two days after receiving an in-home visit from Brown and retained Graduate Assistant Andre Woodson. It was the 2nd time since Stoops was hired that Timmons was had staff pay him a visit (D.J. Eliot was there the week before). Stoops wasn’t playing when he said they were going to recruit Kentucky hard. With a Timmons commitment, it could begin a domino effect for Stoops who reportedly is sneaking in on Trinity’s USC-comitted Defensive End Jason Hatcher.”
