Jedrick Wills, an OT out of Lafayette High School, was bumped up to a five-star prospect in Rivals.com’s 2017 rankings earlier this month and now the analysts at ESPN are showing him some love too. ESPN/Scout released their Junior 300 today which is rankings of , you guessed it, the top 300 juniors in America. Jedrick Wills was the only Kentuckian to make the list, coming in at #81.
Wills is a teammate of all-American UK commit Landon Young which means Lafayette’s 3 star quarterback, Walker Wood, has the easiest job in the state. Oh and by the way Wills was one of the attendees of this past weekend’s Friday Night Lights camp that produced two commitments. With Kentucky quickly becoming Offensive Lineman U, Jedrick Wills could be the next big thing in Lexington but to get him Stoops is going to need to beat Alabama, Florida, Florida State, South Carolina, Louisville and Notre Dame, among others.
It wouldn’t be the first time.
