UK Football Commit Jalen Battle Currently On ESPN

It’s not everyday we get to see a future UK football player in a nationally televised game. Last night, UofL’s future QB Kyle Bolin of Lexington Catholic got waxed on TV. Today, you can flip it to ESPN to watch UK football commit Jalen Battle play…right now! The game started at 3pm, so hurry on over to your television.

Jalen is a 6-3, 185 lb kid in the class of 2013. His University School of Nova South (Ft. Lauderdale, FL) is currently battling Trotwood-Madison High School near Dayton, OH. This 2-star safety will come into Lexington next year hungry for some tackles. His teammate, Dionte Taylor, is a 2013 3-star 6-0 165 lb wide receiver who is currently considering Kentucky, along with about 20 other schools (including Louisville, but that’ll change after the Cats get the W one week from day).

Jalen’s opponent, Trotwood-Madison, has a couple UK connections as well. The squad is coached by Maurice ‘Mo’ Douglass, a former Kentucky football player who was drafted by the Bears in 1986, where he played the majority of his decade-long career (brief stint with the Giants in ’95-’96). Douglass’ team features a 2014 4-star receiver with a UK offer, too: Verondtae Wilkinson. Keep an eye out for this kid.

Battle’s team is currently up 19-0 at halftime, which is much better than how UofL’s Bolin fared last night. I’ve got no clue how well he is doing, but here is a little video clip of Jalen Battle to hold over all you folks who can’t tune in:

    Not to be lovin on a UL commit, but Bolin looked pretty good under fire last night-dropped passes and fumbles weren’t on him-I’d save the hate for a KY kid UK didn’t recruit-karma can be a [email protected]!! The kid’s a good QB who might well be haunting us in a couple years

    Do you all not have to proofread before you post? Poor grammar on the main fan site doesn’t help the poor, dumb, redneck image UK fans and the state as a whole battle. Do a little work or get off the site.

    2- really? at 4:45 in the afternoon, you felt Mr Thomas’s grammatical errors were so bad that you had to mention them? I woke up with dingleberries this morning, and I don’t know how they got there. Well, prolly alcohol and spinach caused it cause I was fartin all night. Anywho, I doubt your “sunday” is all that bad. Just read the stuff and wait for the next post. It’s not that hard.

    Battle recovered a blocked punt in the endzone for a Touchdown in the first quarter

    JALEN BATTLE’S TEAMMATE, 2015 CLASS UNIVERSITY SCHOOL RB JORDAN SCARLETT (#1) ALREADY LOOKS ELITE AND IS ONLY A SOPHOMORE. HE’S LISTED AS 6’2 200/205 AND RUNS A LEGIT 4.3 FORTY ALREADY. WITH SO MUCH UPSIDE AND I’M ASSUMING A EARLY START IN HIS RECRUITMENT WHILE WE HAVE A TEAMMATE OF HIS ALREADY COMMITED TO US, JOKER AND COMPANY NEEDS TO GO AFTER THIS FUTURE PHENOM, REALLY LIKED WHAT I SEEN OUTTA HIM. COMBINES SPEED WIT POWER AND BREAKS TACKLES, PLUS GOOD HANDS OUT THE BACKFIELD AND BLOCKING
