Kentucky is in the middle of an official visit weekend as some very prominent 2022 prospects are checking out Lexington. However, the program has already moved ahead to the 2023 class at the sport’s most important position.
Offensive coordinator Liam Coen is currently in the process of evaluating quarterback prospects and issuing offers. The Wildcats are trying to figure out exactly who they want to target. KSR posted a big board of quarterback prospects last week, but now there is a new name to add to the list.

Paris (Tenn.) Henry County is a powerhouse program in the Volunteer State and their rising junior quarterback has now earned his first Power Five offer. Coen called the young quarterback and issued an offer on Friday night, according to Damron. Kentucky is searching for guys to play behind center.
Christopher Vizzina just visited campus on Saturday and got the “VIP treatment” from the coaching staff according to Justin Rowland of Rivals. For this upcoming Wednesday, KSR has learned that quarterbacks Chris Parson and Brock Glenn will be on campus for UK’s one-day camp. Now Damron is another player to monitor.
The 5-foot-10 quarterback is at a size disadvantage but throws a very impressive deep ball on tape. This month, the unranked quarterback has visited Wake Forest and Tennessee. Middle Tennessee was his only other FBS offer to this point in the recruiting process.
The Wildcats continue to recruit the state of Tennessee very heavily while Coen is on the hunt for his quarterback of the future. KSR will be on the scene Wednesday to provide updates on the two rising juniors.
The class of 2022 still needs to be filled, but the groundwork is being done on prospects in the class of 2023.
Recruiting never sleeps.
