One of UK’s top recruits in the 2018 recruiting class is looking for a new home.
L’Christian “Blue” Smith initially picked to attend Ohio State over Kentucky. After one redshirt season in Columbus, the former four-star prospect is reportedly set to transfer at the end of the spring semester.
A 6’6″ outside receiver, Rivals ranked him as America’s No. 39 overall player in the 2018 recruiting class. Hailing from Wayne High School in Dayton, Ohio, the Cats currently have another 6’6″ wide receiver from Wayne on the roster, Ahmad Wagner. The two helped lead Wayne to the Ohio Division I state championship game in 2015, the state’s largest class for high school football.
Kentucky lost a few players off the roster and did not sign a complete recruiting class in February, leaving a few scholarships available for additions at the end of the spring semester. Most believed UK would hit the grad transfer market to find a wide receiver or two. Now the Cats have another incredibly talented option, Blue Smith.
