4-Star Running Back has UK at the Top of His List

Adarius Lemons is thought of highly by every major recruiting service — he’s in the ESPN 300, Rivals 250, and 247’s Top 247 — and tonight he’s thinking highly of the Cats. ¬†The 2017 recruit has been back and forth between Michigan and Ohio State, but tonight he’s All Cats Everything.

There’s still a long way to go. ¬†Florida running backs are notorious for going back and forth on commitments, but Chad Scott has put Kentucky in a great position to bring one Florida’s best 2017 athletes to UK.

Check out his highlights to truly enjoy this moment.

    I don’t doubt he is a good running back but it doesn’t look like he has ever touched a weight in his life! Legs and arms like sticks! I know he’s young and his body would develop more by the time he stepped on campus but if he got hit by an SEC linebacker right now I’m afraid he might break in half!

      big difference between power back and speed back. he looks more like a speed back. yes he still needs to add a little bulk, but he will never be a derrick henry type power running back.

    I like Daric Pugh from Pikeville. He is a Kentucky boy, he doesn’t run around or away from the defense, he seeks them out and runs over them. Would love to see Pugh in the Blue and White.

      that strategy works great if you’re adrian peterson or if you’re playing against high school defenses. but if you take an undersized kid and try that crap against an sec defense, it won’t work out too well.

      ^ I think kycats13 is saying the Pugh kid is an agressive north/south runner, instead of dancing around trying to avoid contact. We could always use more of that.

    Army All American practice buzz, regarding our two offensive linemen recruits, is already luring in the running backs.

      I wanted to say the same thing. When 2 of the top linemen in the class are going to the same school, I can see why a RB would consider following them.

      I hope Drake, Landon, and Kash all ball out in the actual game on national TV. That would be awesome!
