Cunningham relieved to have recruiting over

Kentucky's need for help at wide receiver going into next season was well documented. On signing day the Wildcats scored big with a pair of Alabama receivers, including Rashad Cunningham.

Kentucky's need for help at wide receiver going into next season was well documented. On signing day the Wildcats scored big with a pair of Alabama receivers, including Rashad Cunningham.

After an excellent senior season for Davidson High in Mobile (Al.), Rashad Cunningham will continue his career at Kentucky. Cunningham had 39 catches for 555 yards and five touchdowns on a team that was primarily a rushing team. With that in mind, Cunningham is also a great blocker on the outside.

"My strength is my ability to block and outrun most defenders and catch the jump ball at its highest point," he said. "I am a very unselfish player who will do whatever it takes for my team to win. I take great pride in hard work and dedication," Cunningham continued.

Cunningham was mildly disappointed in his season as a whole, but he felt better about the ending.

"I had an average performance that could have been much better, but I finished the season strong," he said.

Kentucky signed Cunningham on Wednesday and Rashad was happy to be finished with the process.

"It was a big relief (to finally sign)," he said. "It just felt like all the stress of the recruiting process was over."

Cunningham followed the Wildcats closely this year and wasn't discouraged by an uneven season.

"Even though they didn't have as strong a season as other programs they continued to go out on the field every week and give it their all. They gave it their all on the field even though it didn't always turn out to the best outcome," he said.

Now Cunningham is ready to compete.

"I feel like I could come in and make an immediate impact on the field," he finished.
