Future UK offensive lineman Landon Young’s been stealing the headlines lately for earning a fifth star from 247 Sports and Rivals, but today, his future teammate Kash Daniel got some love from Rivals as well. Rivals upgraded Kash from a three-star prospect to a four-star prospect this morning, a well-deserved honor after an impressive performance at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.
Even with the fourth-star, Kash did not make the new Rivals 250 rankings; however, Landon Young and future defensive back Jordan Griffin did, checking in at #29 and #191, respectively. According to Rivals, Kentucky’s 2016 class now includes one five-star player (Landon Young) and four four-star players (Daniel, Griffin, Tate Leavitt, and Drake Jackson). The class is currently ranked 19th in Rivals’ Team Rankings, although those haven’t been updated to reflect Kash’s new four-star status.
This is a good excuse to share this video of Kash, Landon, and Drake Jackson at the Army All-American Bowl:
Just so you don’t miss it, here are their favorite emojis:
- Drake Jackson: ðŸ™ƒ
- Landon Young: ðŸ¤“
- Kash Daniel: ðŸ˜˜
I don’t even know what the upside down smiley face means.
