Santos to camp at UK

Sean Santos is headed for Lexington this summer in search of his first offer of the year. The former teammate and friend of Richard Lyons, see where Kentucky stands on his list of schools.

New Orleans (La.) quarterback Sean Santos is heading for the summer camps with a force.

With a schedule comparable to a Southeastern Conference road map, Santos will take in plenty of action this summer.

"Sean is headed for Louisiana Tech tomorrow; Ole Miss on the 4th and 5th; Alabama on the 15th; Mississippi State on the 17th; and Kentucky's mini-camp on the 25th," Sean's father Pat Santos told Inside Kentucky on Tuesday.

"LSU will be the last camp he goes too, at the end of the month."

Santos has been heralded as one of Louisiana's best quarterback prospects in the state for the past three seasons as a starter for Holy Cross High School; throwing most recently for 2,233 yards and 25 touchdowns as a junior.

He hopes to find a school that can offer similar success at the next level.

"Like anybody, he is just looking for the right fit, right now," Santos' father continued. "That is what the next two months is all about; finding the right fit for him and finding the right athletic opportunity."

As far as his recruitment is concerned, it appears that Sean Santos is currently open at this point.

"No one has been eliminated."

"Certainly the SEC schools are up there," the elder Santos said. "Nick Saban came out to see him at the spring game and had a very high opinion of him, so they are certainly up there."

As far as Kentucky, one of the Wildcats' most recent signees may have a major impact on Santos' collegiate decision.

"Kentucky is right up there with LSU."

"As you know, Richard (Lyons, Jr.) signed with Kentucky and he is a very good friend of Sean's. He caught a lot of passes from Sean and the thought of hooking up with Richard, certainly excites him."

"He's definitely interested in Kentucky."
