The new ESPN 300 for the 2021 recruiting class is out and two future Kentucky Wildcats made the cut. Wide receiver Dekel Crowdus checks in at No. 227 and his Frederick Douglass teammate Jager Burton at No. 233. The only other player from Kentucky in the rankings is South Warren athlete and Ohio State commit Jantzen Dunn, who is No. 185.
Frederick Douglass is 3-1 so far this season. Crowdus has 13 catches for 120 yards and four touchdowns, while Burton, an offensive guard who also plays defense and rushes on occasion, has scored two two-point conversions and returned an interception 33 yards for a touchdown. KSR was in the house for the Broncos’ season-opener vs. North Hardin, the highlights of which you can see below.
Here’s some extra footage from their win over Lexington Christian Academy as well:
