Kentucky’s recruiting momentum has reached a crescendo. Four-star quarterback Beau Allen has committed to Kentucky.
The Lexington native and son of former Wildcat, Bill Allen, Beau chose to become Mark Stoops’ quarterback of the future over the opportunity to play in Mike Leach and Neal Brown’s air raid systems. Along with Washington State and West Virginia, he had a dozen scholarship offers from the likes of Georgia, Michigan and Michigan State. Allen is the No. 15 ranked pro-style quarterback in America according to Rivals.
Allen will see a few familiar faces at UK. His former Lexington Catholic head coach, Mark Perry, joined the coaching staff as an offensive quality control assistant this spring.
The rising star already has a few friends prepared to play at UK. Four-star offensive tackle John Young and three-star cornerback Andru Phillips committed to UK shortly after the trio officially visited campus last weekend, not too long after they posed for this picture at Kroger Field following the Blue/White Game.
Along with four-star defensive tackle Lamar Goods, UK now has four commitments in the 2020 recruiting class. Stoops and Vince Marrow have built a solid foundation for a strong finish.
