One of Kentucky’s top football targets is waiting a little bit longer to make his college decision.
Four-star lineman Rayshaun Benny planned to pick a school — Michigan, Kentucky, Michigan State or Penn State — this Sunday. Today the Top 200 prospect decided he’s going to take his time before he pulls the trigger and ends his recruitment. The reason for the delay? High school football has 100% of his attention.
I will not be announcing my commitment October 25 anymore I have a season to focus on.

What exactly does this mean? It’s great news for Kentucky.
Almost everyone in the know believed Benny would pick one of the Michigan schools at his upcoming announcement. The delay buys Kentucky more time to stay in his ear and prove that they are a team that’s prepared to compete with the best of the best.
Recruited by Steve Clinkscale, this week his former Oak Park High School teammate, Justin Rogers, will be in the regular rotation on Kentucky’s defensive line, backing up another Oak Park product, Marquan McCall. Their success could help Kentucky successfully land the highest-ranked uncommitted recruit on the Wildcats’ big board.
