By now, you’ve heard that Kash Daniel has moved up his commitment from August 13 to July 4 following a visit to South Carolina. You can read this news a few different ways:
1) Kash enjoyed his time in South Carolina so much he now wants to be a Gamecock; or
2) Kash saw what South Carolina has to offer, wasn’t interested, and wants to end the recruiting process sooner so he can focus on being a home state hero at Kentucky.
After the Damien Harris drama, you can’t blame me for leaning towards the first; however, Kash is scheduled to come on “Big Blue Insider” Wednesday night when Drake Jackson hosts, and that doesn’t seem like a move someone who doesn’t have true blue intentions would pull. In fact, Kash didn’t schedule that appearance until after his visit to South Carolina, so read into that what you will.
Regardless, all of the developments had Kash’s fellow in-state players talking on Twitter yesterday. Incoming freshman Eli Brown says committing to UK over big-name programs was the best decision he’s ever made:
Swear attending UK was the best choice I have ever made as a man. I love lex and we got the best fans hands down!!!!

Jackson, class of 2016 recruiting coordinator and Kash’s friend, agreed:

I still would have picked UK even if it wasn't my home-state school. I want to do something special. #BBN.

Stay home and be a hero, Kash.
