Today we have news from both the basketball and football sides of recruiting. Let’s get to it.

  Kash Daniel wants Big Blue Nation at his game Friday night.

Daniel asked that we let the BBN know he will be playing in Frankfort this Friday. He and his Paintsville teammates will line up against Frankfort High School at 7:30 pm. It’s the best chance for Central Kentuckians to see UK’s prized commitment in his senior season of high school football.

Frankfort plays at Sower Field and Ryan Lemond tells us it’s tough to find. Here’s a map that’ll help you get to it:

Get in there, you guys.

  Drake Jackson unranked in new Rivals 250.

In case this is your first time visiting the site today, earlier we shared the news that UK commit Drake Jackson is no longer in the Rivals 250.

Jackson dropped to unranked on the updated list, while his future teammate on UK’s offensive line, Landon Young, is ranked No. 91.

Jackson was No. 224 prior to today’s update.

  The cover of the Herald-Leader’s High School Football Preview is pretty funny.


Kentucky shouldn’t have a problem hanging on to the commitments from those three.

  Name to Watch: Chauncey Manac

According to Justin Rowland at Rivals, Kentucky is very interested in the weakside defensive end, ranked sixth at his position in the 247Sports Composite Rankings. Manac is committed to Georgia and has been for almost a year now, but Mark Stoops and his staff are doing all they can to steal him away from the Dawgs before NSD.

  Top-ranked big man sets visit to Kentucky.

Also from earlier, Marques Bolden, the No. 1 center in the 2016 recruiting class, will visit Lexington on September 4th. Duke and Kansas currently split Bolden’s Crystal Ball predictions at 65 and 35 percent, respectively. He also has an offer from Louisville and several others.

With Tai Wynyard, Sacha Killeya-Jones and Isaac Humphries projected to be in UK’s 2016-17 frontcourt, Calipari will have to sell him on playing with those three inside.

This dunk by Miles Bridges is absurd.

Bridges will be at Kentucky for Big Blue Madness. Get him and Harry Giles and good luck to the rest of college basketball.

    I don’t think Bolden would be worried about getting clock if all we have next year is Roo, Kiwi and SKJ … Skal and Poy will probably be gone and there’s a decent chance Lee could also leave.

    All I can say about where Frankfort plays their high school games is… wow. It is really something special.

    Kristen Balboni, you the real MVP……

  6. I know it’s not totally scientific, but Drake kicked some 5 star tail at The Opening and he falls out of the 250? That’s ridiculous! What did the other guys do to move up over the summer that he didn’t do?

    The dunk is pretty sick, but I’d say that play was more a result of defense being out of position, than the offense being all that great.

    Don’t go out of the way to watch Kash. He is more than targeted by teams because of his lack of speed and coverage. Workout guy but average player. Eastern Ky coaches know
