Cats offer four new prospects

Rich Brooks and his staff have gone to work this week, already handing out a host of scholarship offers from in-state to as far east as North Carolina. Take a look at the new scholarship offers and some tibits about each.

The biggest news on the scholarship offer front appears to be in Florida, where the Cats have decided to place an offer in Valrico, Florida home to Jason Grant.

"Kentucky has offered me a scholarship," said Grant. "I also like Auburn, Florida, and South Carolina."

According to Scott Kennedy, Grant is a spectacular prospect for the Cats to get involved with;

"Jason Grant is a good looking quarterback that stood out at a recent summer camp. He throws a tight, accurate spiral, and after approaching him, I was not surprised to find out that one SEC school had already offered him."

"He's not going to blow anyone away with huge size or armstrength, but he throws a good ball with a nice delivery."

According to our source in Florida, he also throws a nice ball on the move,

"Jason's got a nice delivery on the run," said Johnny Culpepper of Florida High. "He is a natural playmaker in the backfield that can create things out of nothing."

Another offer that has come through the wire is, Madisonville's Blake Boyd. Boyd, at 6'4 230, has good mobility for a defensive end or tight end spot at the next level. He recently visited Louisville, whom has been his percieved leader.

"It went real well," Boyd said of his visit. "They worked me out at defensive end, tight end and linebacker. I think I did real well."

"Louisville's definately in my top two, along with Kentucky," Boyd said. "I don't want to rule out Marshall though, but those are my top two."

Kentucky, Louisville, and Marshall have all offered the talented athlete.

The biggest news of the past two days, has come from South Carolina, where the Cats used the in-roads made from last year's recruitment of Jomar Wright to find a recent newcomer to the state in Freddie Brown of Byrnes High School.

Brown played his high school football at Jay M. Robinson in Concord, North Carolina last year.

Brown had been rumored to be pondering his basketball future as well as football, but wants to put those rumors to rest.

"I'm really leaning towards playing football in college," says the 6-foot-4, 200 pounder. Brown, who grew up playing basketball, believes some schools were backing off due to his basketball abilities.

The staff continues to recruit those athletic types that can move around, such as Brown, and such as Alex Daniels from Ohio. Also a recent addition to our offer list.

"(Daniels) is a top 10 player in Ohio in my magazine," BuckNuts Magazine Analyst Duane Long said. "A real freak as a football player and one of the most likable kids I have come in contact with in my time doing this."

Daniels has been rumored to be wanting to get that Ohio State offer and could jump at the opportunity if it presents itself.

IK will have more on the new incoming offers as they become available.
