Mac Jones named to the Rivals Five-Star Challenge




More good news for UK commit Mac Jones. The 2017 signee was just named to the Rivals Five-Star Challenge, the first time a UK commit has made the prestigious event since Drew Barker in 2013. The Five-Star Challenge will be held June 10-11 in the Georgia Dome in Atlanta.

On Monday, Jones was named one of the top five quarterbacks in the Rivals’ 2016 Camp Series, with Southeast Recruiting Analyst Rob Cassidy calling him a “well-rounded” passer who “seems to get better with each passing month.” Jones has received 22 offers, including four from SEC schools in the past month and a half (Alabama, Texas A&M, Ole Miss, Missouri), but seems solid in his commitment to Kentucky.

Let’s hope it stays that way. Congrats, Mac.

    This kid looks to be the real deal. Good pocket awareness, able to extend a play, can throw on the run, accurate passer, seems to see the field well and find people…
