Wildcats Showing Interest In Bujnoch

One player the Wildcats are taking a hard early look at is also taking a hard look back. We get the latest.

The Kentucky Wildcats have found a player or two from the Queen City in the past. Will Austen Bujnoch be another one looking to take his game to the SEC and the Wildcats? We get the latest on the interest the Wildcats are showing.

"My coach received a call from Kentucky about getting a copy of my film," said the Cincinnati Elder offensive line product. "It's a program I was happy to hear was showing interest because I've seen how they've been coming along."

While no offer is in his hands from the Wildcats, Bujnoch said interest has continued to rise.

"Coach Ramsey is getting a lot of calls and emails about me and request for copies of my highlight tape. Ohio State, North Carolina State, Tennessee and Kentucky have all requested tape and asked questions about me."

For those who don't know the Bujnoch family name it's one that has now seen a father and older brother play at the college level. Father Glenn played eight seasons for the NFL's Cincinnati Bengals while Austen's older brother Digger just finished his career at Cincinnati and is now working for a spot in this year's NFL Draft.

When asked about the schools at the top of his list Austen said no one sits in the top spot but Kentucky would be a program he'd take a very hard look at.

We'll continue to follow Austen to see how deep of interest the Wildcats show during his recruiting.

Dave's Breakdown of Austen Bujnoch: I've had the chance to follow both Austen and his older brother Digger over the past couple of years. The Bujnoch family is one that loves their football and it shows in how their son's go about their business. As a player Austen is a lot like his brother as he's a true tackle prospect with great feet and an understanding of the game most high school prospects don't have. Built with a frame that can still grow and add weight (6-foot-5, 250-pounds) the younger Bujnoch looks like he'll do like his older brother and end up as a mobile 6-foot-5, 285-295-pound lineman. Austen shows nice knee bend and flexability and is capable of getting to second level defenders to make key blocks.
