Just in case you haven’t seen enough “first day of school” pictures on Facebook yet, I’ve got another one for you. Thanks to KSR reader Clay for sending in this picture of Drake Jackson, a 2016 4-star offensive lineman, wearing a UK Football shirt on the first day of school at Woodford County. Jackson is considered the best center and 57th best player overall in the 2016 class by 247 Sports, and, accordingly, has offers from all the big guys, including Alabama, Tennessee, and, oh yeah, Kentucky.

Jackson is high on the Cats, and UK’s interest in him may have played a part in Luke Hiers decommitting on Monday. Right now, his Crystal Ball is 56% UK, 19% Alabama, 19% Ohio State, and 6% Purdue. With Mark Stoops and his staff putting a major emphasis on keeping top in-state talent in state, Drake sporting the UK shirt on his first day of school is a promising sight.

    I would be greatly disappointed if UK doesn’t close the deal on Jackson.

    Why does he have his iPhone out in class? Are they actually teaching these kids anything nowadays?

      Because it’s 2014. You’d be surprised how such devices are used in education.

      Because why have 5 different types of devices when you can have one that does them all?

    Maybe it’s the angle of the pic or the perspective, but this guy looks like a goober that would get the crap kicked out of him in school.

    Yes, I’m aware that in reality, he could easily wipe the floor with me, but this pic looks kinda funny to me.

    I challenge the teacher to give him anything but an A now hahahahaha. Don’t think they have the guts. Though if they give him an A – , I would concede they have some guts… like in the range of a spleen and 1/3 of a gall bladder

    Yes, Ms. Thompson…such a promising sight. The fact he’s wearing a UK shirt two years from playing a down in college is so promising. Slow day? Not enough sandwiches to make?
