Kentucky will host four-star former Michigan commit for official visit



After one big recruiting weekend, Mark Stoops and Vince Marrow are doubling down. This weekend UK will host one of the top wide receivers in America for an official visit.

Kalil Branham, ranked by 247 as a top 25 wide receiver in the 2020, is set to be in Lexington for an official visit this weekend, according to Justin Rowland. The four-star pass-catcher from Columbus is back in the Bluegrass after a brief sabbatical.

Branham was committed to Michigan when he unofficially visited Kroger Field for the Blue/White Game. He reopened his recruitment shortly after he saw UK’s offense score 74 points. Since that trip, Branham’s been a big fan of the Cats on social media.

Branham is also a big fan of Beau Allen, who will make his college decision Monday.

A state champion sprinter, Branham brings plenty of speed to the outside. Athleticism runs in the family. His older brother, John Jr., is a three-star running back signed to play at Eastern Michigan. As the Cats search for elite athletes to insert into the 2020 class, Branham fits the build.

    The players this staff has got to visit UK is amazing. To go from battling Ohio U, Marshall etc., for recruits like we did pre Stoops to now battling {and in some cases beating} Michigan Ohio St, UGA etc. is just amazing. Getting this kid would be, yet another, eye opener for UK recruiting. Thanks to the staff and all the young men for making UK football fun.

      UK isn’t beating OSU in recruits. Ohio State hasn’t even offered him anything. All kids in Ohio want to go to OSU but very few get recruited now. UK goes after the players that OSU doesn’t want. I guarantee this kid would of signed yesterday with OSU if offered a scholarship. Perfect example Benny Snell…

      Mashburnfan1 is right. It’s amazing how quickly things have changed. We are now recruiting SEC caliber players. For all the naysayers, I think some has forgotten where we used to be.

      Well Prime I did not say this kid was offered by OSU but {perfect example} John Young, who we just got last week, was indeed offered by OSU. So my statement is correct. Please check facts before making a fool of yourself. Landon Young, Josh Paschall, Corker and Drake Jackson all had OSU offers. Also incoming players like Devonshire, Wilkins, Butler all had offers from OSU but did commit to UK. Butler is from Ohio but I am not talking just players from Ohio, never said that in my comment. Plus there are a few more for the 2020 class that OSU has offered that may bleed blue.

    Be careful trolling the trolls or you post might get removed. Because being a Duke fan and going after UK fans is fine but being a UK fan and going after the Puke trolls is not.

      Tell me about it… He can’t stand not to leave the fact that he thinks he is/wants to be a “dr”. Provably just a dentist if anything at all.
      So this hopefully doesn’t get taken down, I’ll just say that the guy with a house full of Zion fatheads on his walls and ceilings is most likely the comment cleaner. Haha

      truth had a statement in there that deserved to be deleted and probably should have been suspended for a day or two.

      What I said pointed to the stupidity of addyjax and what they allow on this site. Had I said it myself instead of as the troll it would still be up. The only people who should have got offended were members of that horrible group.
