In case you haven’t heard, the nation’s #2 running back will announce his college choice this Friday. His options: Kentucky or Alabama. This idea would seem crazy a few years ago, but it shows how far the program has come under Stoops. Damien spoke about his decision this Friday night after the Under Armour All-American game:

Home is where the heart is. You know, (UK) is 15 minutes away from my house. It’s real close. And the program is on the rise for sure and they’re doing a lot of great things… But at the same time, I’ve been battling with -do I want to go somewhere that’s already established where I have great players around me?

It’s a tough choice indeed. We wish Damien the best with wherever he decides to go. Let’s just hope it’s Kentucky.

      Kid from Texas, probably joining a big time recruiting class for Strong, named Jamabo is #1 rated rb.

      Depends on which site you look at. A lot have him at #2 now.

      He genuinely wants to play for UK, he isn’t just entertaining the idea. I think in his mind, he wants to play at UK the most but doesn’t know if that is the best choice for his future.

    UK needs him bad. The fans want him bad. I hope he chooses UK to get the program moving forward.
