Cats eye Curtis Pulley

The Bluegrass state features perhaps one of the best athletes in the nation in Curtis Pulley, a 6'4 195 pound prospect from Hopkinsville.

An all-state selection in both football and basketball, Pulley is the definition of an athletic prospect coming out of high school. He has been projected in as many as four spots on the football field: quarterback, safety, wide reciever, and linebacker.

Quarterback is where he has excelled the most for Hopkinsville. Pulley passed for over 2,000 yards and ran for a 1,000 more, in accounting for over 40 touchdowns this past season.

"He's just a difference-maker," Hopkinsville Coach Craig Clayton said. "You see guys at the high school level, in college, and in the pros who just have a knack for making big plays, and Curtis is one of those guys."

Kentucky seems to have shown the most interest at this point. Clayton said that Coach Rich Brooks was in Western Kentucky over Christmas Break and expects Kentucky to be the first to offer.

Pulley was also in Lexington on Sunday for Junior Day.

"I think Kentucky being the first to offer would go a long way."

Michigan State, Michigan, Louisville, Wisconsin, Indiana, Tennessee, Arkansas, and Memphis have already requested tape on Pulley and most likely will be in the mix.

With summer camps around the corner, an early commitment from Pulley could be a great start to what should be another outstanding year in the recruiting ranks.
