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.
