JUCO offensive lineman Jeremy Flax will enroll at UK this summer

There’s been a slight change of plans for one of UK’s highest-ranked recruits.

On Early Signing Day Jeremy Flax was initially listed as one of Kentucky’s 12 early enrollees. Once National Signing Day rolled around, Flax’s name was removed from the list of early enrollees.

A four-star talent originally from Michigan, a late push by the Wildcats and a timely visit by UK’s coaching staff secured Flax’s commitment. Picking Kentucky over Auburn, the versatile offensive lineman was projected to compete for immediate playing time at guard or as a reserve offensive tackle, in part thanks to his JUCO status. You recruit JUCOs to play right away. By arriving to campus in time for spring ball, their steep learning curve dramatically shrinks ahead of fall camp.

It’s unfortunate Flax will not be on campus for spring practice. As one of the few additions who could compete for significant snaps this fall, he would have been one of the most intriguing players to follow. Despite his absence, he will still have plenty of time to find his footing before football kicks off this fall.

As for the rest of the midyear enrollees, KSR will be speaking to all 12 later this week. We’ll help you get to know them before they put on the pads at spring practice next month.

    That doesn’t make sense. I guess he wants to get the full Juco experience.

    He’s more than likely finishing up a class he needs to enroll. I’m sure it’s nothing major and probably something that simple. Can’t wait for the big man to get on campus and hope he’s working his butt off. He’ll definitely need to if he wants to come in and take someone’s place at UK. He’s got a lot of competition to earn minutes. That’s unbelievable to be able to say that now but it’s soo true. Go Cats

      ^ This. There is no other reason to delay enrolling at UK if you’re a JuCo player.

      The fact that we’re now taking actually talented JUCOs and they have to compete for a job instead of playing out of desperation is awesome.

    Completely off topic but X Peters still has zero snaps.

      I thought he got in a couple of games late in the season, but I could be wrong. Regardless, he’d better be taking care of business or he will get left behind as the talent keeps pouring in.
