Kentucky makes Top Seven of 3-Star Running Back

The Cats have made the final seven of a 3-star running back out of Melbourne, Florida. Lavonte Valentine is the number 13 all-purpose back in the class of 2018. An all-purpose back is one who has success as both a runner and a receiver. He currently does hold an offer from the Cats.  His final seven includes: LSU, Florida, Louisville, South Carolina, USC, Notre Dame and Kentucky. Right now, his Crystal Ball projections are set at 50% Florida and 50% South Carolina, but as we have learned, you can never count out Eddie Gran and company.

Valentine does feature blistering speed. He won the Florida 4A State Championship in the 100m dash by running it in 10.61 seconds. His personal record is a 10.44. Earlier this year, Valentine also set the National Record by running the 60 meter dash in 6.77 seconds. You can watch him work down below:
