The final home football game of the season is here. Before the Cats kick off against the Cards at Kroger Field, recruits will stroll down the sideline as the teams prepare for battle.

As is tradition, many of UK’s 2020 commits will be on campus for unofficial visits. That list includes five-star defensive tackle Justin Rogers, who will be making the trip from Michigan for the umpteenth time this season. Here’s who else is expected to be in Lexington this afternoon:

Jimmy Calloway — A four-star wide receiver from Georgia, Calloway made headlines when he said he’s ’80 percent’ committed to Tennessee. Recruited by Steve Clinkscale, the 2020 athlete is expected to make a return trip to UK next weekend too.

Jager Burton — The highest-ranked 2021 recruit in the state of Kentucky, Rivals ranks the Frederick Douglass offensive lineman as the No. 132 junior in America. John Schlarman’s been involved with Burton’s recruitment early and often while Ohio State, Clemson, Oregon and others pursue.

Jordan Lovett — The junior defensive back from North Hardin High School has blown up on the recruiting trail over the last month. He was in the stands to watch Kentucky take on Vanderbilt. Today will be his first unofficial visit to Kroger Field. Lovett has offers from UK, UofL, Cincinnati and Tennessee.

Logan Weedman — Another in-state star in the junior class, the three-star 6’5″ tight end from Owensboro’s Apollo High School has a scholarship offer from Kentucky.

Tyson Watson — A three-star defensive end from the Great Lakes State, the 2021 prospect holds scholarship offers from both of the Iowa schools and a handful from the MAC.

Jamie Felix — He’s only a sophomore but he’s already a star in the recruiting world. A four-star running back from Kingsland, Ga., 247 ranks Felix as the No. 69 player in the 2022 recruiting class. The top ten running back holds offers from UK, Florida, Florida State, LSU and many more. By the time he’s set to choose a college, he’ll be able to go anywhere in the country. Watch him do work:
