Congratulations to future Cat Landon Young, who was named to the prestigious Rivals 100 this morning. The Lafayette offensive lineman was ranked 91st on the list, making him UK’s first Rivals 100 commit in TEN YEARS. The last UK player in the Rivals 100 was linebacker Micah Johnson, who was considered the 36th best player in the 2006 class.
Young committed to UK over two years ago, and despite interest from major programs like Auburn, Alabama, and Ohio State, has remained firm in his pledge to Mark Stoops and the Cats.
To fully appreciate what a big deal this is, check out some of the other schools in the Rivals 100. Pretty good company.
