Four-star DE says he is considering Kentucky because KFC

Ken Talley, a weakside defensive end in the 2022 recruiting class, is already garnering offers from all over the country in the summer before his junior season. The Pennsylvania native has his coveted Penn State offer and many others around the Big Ten, plus some serious interest from the Southeastern Conference in the form of offers from Florida, Ole Miss, Texas A&M, Tennessee and Kentucky.

On Sunday, Talley announced his top 13 schools ahead of his September 8th announcement and the Cats made the cut:

Once Justin Rowland saw the news, he reached out to the four-star edge rusher to ask why Kentucky among the list of finalists for Talley’s commitment. Talley told Rowland he “loves the school and KFC.”

Hey, we’ll take it. No one tell him there are over 23,000 KFC restaurants in more than 140 countries and territories around the world, and Kentucky Football’s only connection to them is they share a first name. If he likes UK because he likes the Colonel’s blend of secret herbs and spices, we’ll play along to get him here. Mark Stoops should be telling him KFC tastes better in Kentucky.

Or maybe Talley just said the first thing that came to mind? I love the school and Kentucky… Fried Chicken. On the fly word association, it could happen to anyone. Here, I’ll try with the schools around the SEC:

Alabama: I love the school and the Southern rock band

Arkansas: I love the school and Bill Clinton

Auburn: I love the school and people with auburn hair

Florida: I love the school and Florida Georgia Line

Georgia: I love the school and Florida Georgia Line

LSU: I love the school and the Louisiana Purchase

Ole Miss: I love the school and the Mississippi River

Mississippi State: I love the school and M-i-crooked letter-crooked letter-i-crooked letter-crooked letter-i-humpback-humpback-i

Missouri: I love the school and I too love company

South Carolina: I love the school and Carolina BBQ

Tennessee: I love the school and “Tennessee Whiskey”

Texas A&M: I love the school and Texas Roadhouse

Vanderbilt: I love the school and Jarred Vanderbilt

That was a fun game.

For what it’s worth, Talley picked up his offer from UK last week, so the Cats are new to the chase. He’ll announce on September 8, as his graphic states.

Go Cats.

    Good thing he has never eaten at Popeye’s, or he would be a lock for LSU.

    Alabama the southern rock band? Shouldve just stuck to Rowland’s tweet. Is there an article quota at ksr ?

    If he like KFC that much, Stoops should tell him their secret recipe is buried somewhere near the 50 yard line of Commonwealth… I mean Kroger Field.
