Lexington offensive lineman bumped to five stars

Jedrick Wills of Lafayette High School is now a five-star prospect in Rivals.com’s 2017 rankings. A teammate of UK commit Landon Young, Wills is the No. 13 overall prospect in the class. He could potentially become Mark Stoops’ first five-star commitment one day down the road.

Here’s a look at Wills standing next to Ryan Lemond:

And here’s an 11-year-old Jedrick Wills with our friend Bunchy Donovan:

    He is a very fit looking 300 pounder

    OK something doesn’t add up. Check my math here.

    If ole dude is supposed to graduate in 2017, he would have been born around 1999. If he was 11 in this picture, that would have put it around 2010. First episode of Ray Donavan didn’t air till 2013. Now the actor has been acting for a while, so maybe he knew him from something else. But HBO put his face on the map. Either this was before Ray Donovan, or his age is wrong or I’m bad at math (3rd option is most likely).

    Wow! What have we been feeding these KY boys/men lately? Put them in front of some of the skill players and QBs we’ve been getting lately (after a time with our outstanding conditioning coaches) and we’re going to look like an SEC line.

      Hormone infested milk. Clearly he’s had his fair share of estrogen.

    Coach Stoop is real honest with these recruits. He tells it like it is that this Cat team will not be very good and not to expect much. They can come in and get plenty of playing time as true freshmen.

      Aww, how cute. Stoops is reeling in the best recruiting classes in our program’s history. And we’re taking ALL of the top in-state talent (not criminal refugees).

      Get it all out while you can – this year’s game is just around the corner. 😉

      Unlike Petrino, who fails to tell his recruits that bail money isn’t a permissible benefit to student-athletes.

      Clutch, that’s only when he doesn’t yank their scholarship offer out from under them for some other criminal who is higher ranked.

    Stoops already has a 5 Star recruit in Elam!

      Elam wasn’t a 5 star by any of the ‘legit’ recruiting services and some even had him as a 3. This guy is the real deal
