UK Commit Izayah Cummings Named Kentucky 6A Player of the Year

While his senior season didn’t end with the result he would have hoped for, future Kentucky commit Izayah Cummings still took home a fancy piece of hardware.

Cummings, a three-star wide receiver from Male High School in Louisville, was named the Class 6A Player of the Year by the Kentucky Football Coaches Association, according to the Courier-Journal.

Cummings and his Male squad faced off against crosstown rival Trinity High School in Kroger Field earlier on Sunday for the Class 6A State Championship. The Shamrocks of Trinity (13-2) thoroughly outplayed Male (14-1), taking home its 26th state title by a score of 28-6.

The win for Trinity avenges a 20-17 double-overtime loss they suffered at the hands of Male during the regular season. Male had won three games in a row against Trinity before Sunday’s affair.

In his final game as a high school player – just months before he’ll step back onto Kroger Field wearing the Kentucky blue-and-white – Cummings had an okay outing despite the blowout loss.

Cummings’ most impressive highlight was a 34-yard catch run in the first quarter, although it was one of only a few bright spots for his team’s offense. Male only produced one touchdown on the day, but they couldn’t have pulled it off without a key block from Cummings that freed his teammate open for a score.

 

Cummings is a big-time recruit for Kentucky and one of the best in the entire state. 247Sports ranks him as the ninth-best overall player out of Kentucky and the 91st wide-receiver in the country. The 6-foot-3 wideout has been a Kentucky commitment since June.

    Hard to believe there’s 90 WRs better than him in this class. I seriously doubt it and believe this kid can be a special player during his time here. He’s definitely coming at the right time as far as The Quarterback room. We’ll have more talent on this team the next few years that’s ever been on a team here at one time. Congratulations to you young man for an outstanding high school career, we can’t wait to see you here at Kentucky.

    Agreed, Jasun. So many times the ratings services are wrong. This kid has got talent and uses it well.
