Drake Re-Schedules Visit

Nelson County's TC Drake was scheduled to visit UK this past weekend, but a scheduling conflict with basketball caused him to have to re-schedule.

"No I didn't make the trip to Lexington," T.C. Drake said to Inside Kentucky.

Will Drake be re-scheduling his visit to Kentucky?

"Yes sir, I am," Drake said. "I'm scheduled to go up there this weekend and we'll see if I can try again."

Drake, a 6-foot-6 215 pound prospect has only been playing football for 2 seasons, but has gotten the attention of a handful of midwestern football schools, including Kentucky, whom at one point extended an invitation to join Kentucky in January of 2006 as a grayshirt.

"I haven't really talked to the coaches, but they've been talking to my coach and he said that they are looking at me as a preferred walk-on situation, with an opportunity to get a scholarship after my first year."

Kentucky isn't the only school to offer a chance to walk-on. Louisville, Western Kentucky and Eastern Kentucky have all offered the chance to enroll in the fall and gain a scholarship in the future.

"I'm set up to go to Western Kentucky on an official visit on February 10th. I'm excited about the opportunity to meet the professors and the academic center and the coaches."

Drake did not name a leader, although he did at one point try to verbally commit to Kentucky when he was offered a grayshirt. Drake lists UofL, Western Kentucky, Purdue, Eastern Kentucky and Indiana as his top choices to further his education.

He plans on making a commitment after he takes his visits.

According to his coach Drake is one of the better athletes in the state; "TC is a 6 foot 6, 215 pound, tight end," Coach Bill Mason said. "TC's strength is his athletic ability. He is a big man that runs a 4.7 forty and has great coordination. He is a very aggressive and at times, a dominating blocking tight end. We were not a passing team so I'd say he had 12 catches for 250 yds and 4 TD's, but the colleges like his size, speed, and, athleticism."
