If you haven’t heard by now, Kentucky football’s latest Yahtzee came yesterday afternoon when four-star linebacker Kash Daniel picked Kentucky over Louisville and South Carolina. Now that Daniel has committed, Kentucky officially has the top three recruits out of the state. The other two being four-star offensive linemen Drake Jackson and Landon Young.
The Courier-Journal’s Kyle Tucker spoke to JC Shurburtt, a national recruiting analyst for 247Sports about what Daniel can bring to Kentucky along with Jackson and Young.
“It’s huge to have three guys that are Army Bowl guys this year, and to get them all, it’s gigantic. Every recruit in the country watches that and they’re going to be hearing ‘Kentucky, Kentucky, Kentucky’ over and over again during the broadcast.”
