Kentucky Makes the Top 12 for Two-Sport Star

Don Montague | Orlando Sentinel

Ft. Lauderdale 4-star defensive end Jordan Wright shrunk his list to 12 earlier today and the Cats made the cut.  An exceptional athlete in the 2017 class, Eddie Gran isn’t the only Kentucky coach to recruit the elite pass rusher.

A 6’6″ 215-pound basketball star for Dillard High School, John Calipari offered Wright a walk-on opportunity last month.  Help from Calipari might be the only way UK can sway the nation’s #28 weak side defensive end away from Miami, Alabama and others.  A look at who else is in contention.


After watching his highlight film, you can understand why Eddie Gran and Mark Stoops are pulling out all of the stops to sign Wright (You don’t have to look farther than the first play to see him pull off one of my favorite plays in all of football).
