Kentucky Makes Top 8 for 2022 Three-Star Offensive Tackle



Kentucky remains a front-runner for 2022 three-star OT Daughtry Richardson.

On Friday, the South Florida product cut his list from ten teams to eight. Kentucky is in the mix along with Florida State, Pitt, Missouri, Miami, Arizona State, UCF, and Mississippi State.

Richardson delayed his initial announcement back in February.

Eric Wolford, Kentucky’s new offensive line coach, has held a tight-knit relationship with Richardson dating, back to his time at South Carolina. The two continued their relationship all the way to Lexington. According to Cats Illustrated, there was a sense a few weeks ago that Richardson was ready to make a commitment to Kentucky, however, he ultimately decided to back off that decision and has since left his recruitment open. Kentucky was initially in his top three along with Arizona State and West Virginia.

Now that West Virginia is off the list, it will be interesting to see what the next move is for the Tallahassee native. Richardson grew up as a fan of the ‘Noles, a team that is also still in the running for Richardson.

“They want me,” Richardson told NoleGamdeday about FSU. “That’s the message they are giving to me. They’re saying I’m a top tackle for their class, they want me to commit.”

Kentucky is still firmly in the mix for Richardson, but it may just come down to the wire.

    I thought south Florida was a recruiting area that had failed UK in the past? South Florida kids either didn’t stay with UK or under performed?

    I know top 8 for a 3 star is not big news any more but this is the slow season and it was probably the only story in the recruiting news involving UK today. Keep them coming and keep us up to date.

    Lol these commenters is funny. Josh Allen. Jamin Davis. Bud Dupree. Randall Cobb. All were either 0-3 star and got selected 1st rd and Cobb top in 2nd rd. Yes, recruiting as at a all time high, but this staff has him on the board for a reason. I trust they know. P.S. yes, S. Fl. players have struggled here and left but don’t forget, Gran was the main recruiter down there. We need to send the big dog down to Florida
