Kentucky makes the cut for Four-Star Twins, Keaten and Destin Wade

Two of the best high school football players in the region are twins from Tennessee. As Keaten and Destin Wade approach their senior seasons, Kentucky is heavy in pursuit of the four-star recruits.

Hailing from just south of Nashville in Spring Hill, TN, Keaten is the slightly larger and higher rated of the two brothers. Two-way stars, Keaten is a 6’5″ 225-pound running back that will play outside linebacker at the next level. Rivals ranks him as the No. 140 player overall in the 2022 recruiting class. Destin Wade is two inches shorter and 20 pounds lighter. A quarterback and free safety, he’s ranked as the No. 28 ATH in America.

The term package deal gets thrown out a lot even though it is rarely executed. This appears to be one of the most sought after package deals on the recruiting trail. Tuesday the Wade brothers released almost an identical list of finalists, with a few exceptions. Kentucky and Louisville were included in each. Keaten’s features a few more high profile schools, which of course means that Tennessee was omitted.

After you watch highlights from their truncated 2020 season, it doesn’t take long to tell they’re the real deal.

    Hopefully they don’t end up like the Dowell Twins that spurred us for Sparty a few years ago!
