A Big Weekend for Mac Jones
The Cats’ next quarterback will be in Baltimore for the Rivals Challenge QB Finals, the recruiting network’s top national camp for signal callers. Coming off two consecutive camp MVP performances, Mac said he feels good going into this weekend. Hopefully he can carry some of that momentum to Baltimore to take out the 12 others from around the nation.

Another Alabama Offer for a Top Target
Football recruiting caught the casual fan’s eye when Mac Jones received an offer from Alabama. Now the Crimson Tide are trying to take a recruit that is just as important. Josh Paschal is a Top 250 player, a 4-star strong side defensive end from Mother of Good Counsel in Maryland, the same high school as current OLB/DE Kobie Walker. His older brother, TreVaughn, played four years at UK and walked with me at graduation in December.
With plenty of UK ties, the Cats can’t afford to lose Paschal to Clemson, Ohio State, Maryland or Bama. There aren’t too many spaces left in the Class of 2017, but they need him to fill an important spot at defensive end.
Caleb Rozar is High on UK
The 3-star 2017 wide receiver/athlete from Clarksville, Tn. spoke to Scout about his top three schools — Kentucky, North Carolina and Mississippi State. While other schools hope to use him as a defensive back, Kentucky wants him as a receiver. There’s no school he’s visited more, but the tight be because his sister went to UK. D.J. Eliot gave Rozar his first offer. “I talk to them almost everyday,” Rozar said. “They’ve stuck with me since the beginning.”
Lamar Thomas is on the Recruiting Trail
If you aren’t following Lamar Coach T yet I don’t know what you’re doing.
Offers for ’17 Commits
The duo from Toledo Central Catholic picked up offers earlier this week. Running back Mike Warren earned his sixth, this one from Bowling Green. Defensive end James Hudson got his 16th when Mark Richt of The U extended an offer. This weekend Hudson will be visiting Michigan State. His recruiting momentum won’t be slowing down any time soon.
A 2018 Ohio OT Target is Offered
Usually Vince Marrow is quick to scout the top talent form Ohio and extend offers before anyone else. That is not the case with Jackson Carman. The Junior-to-be’s Kentucky offer was his 23rd, following in the footsteps of Alabama, Ohio State, Michigan and Michigan State. The 6’6″ 305-pounder would be a lovely edition, but this is looking like a longshot.
