One of Kentucky football’s top recruits in the class of 2021 continues to prove why he’s one of the team’s must-get prospects when the early signing period begins next week.
Participating in the 34th Alabama-Mississippi All-Star Football Classic this afternoon, four-star wide receiver Christian Lewis was one of the event’s biggest standouts, finishing with four catches for 57 yards and two touchdowns.
The first touchdown came on a 28-yard reception in the right corner of the end zone, followed by an impressive 11-yard touchdown catch in the second half.
There is no footage available from the game yet, but the future Wildcat did pull down some spectacular grabs in practice earlier this week with the cameras rolling.
Check out a few of the highlights:

Rated as a four-star prospect and the No. 51 wide receiver in the senior class, the 6-foot-3 standout finished with 70 receptions for 1,235 yards and 18 touchdowns to close out his high school career.
Picking up interest from numerous Power 5 programs following his commitment, Lewis announced this week he was going to sign with Kentucky on December 16, the first day of the early signing period.
He originally chose the Wildcats over Louisville, Texas A&M, Notre Dame, Tennessee, and Oregon, among 39 total offers.
