GIDEL: KY RB Sports Four Offers

The No. 14 ranked player in the state of Kentucky, Madison Central safety/defensive back Paul Warford has been one of the hottest names in the Bluegrass state since the spring. He's landed four early scholarship offers.

"He's got offers from Northwestern, Kentucky, Eastern Kentucky and Western Kentucky," Madison Central coach Kenny Turner said. "Last I heard he's pretty much open to everybody. I know he's waiting to see what happens with Louisville."

Coach Paul Petrino and the Louisville staff have been evaluating the 5-foot-11, 185 pound athlete and despite the lack of offer to this point, have indicated that one might be forthcoming.

"He likes the in-state schools, a lot," he said. "They've been staying in close contact with Paul since the beginning. Kentucky, in particular, has recruited Paul very hard, especially since his summer camp. I know he likes Louisville. They gave him a lot of attention at the beginning, before UK offered."

In his career, Warford has already rushed for over 2,000 yards. Last season, he ran for 15 touchdowns and averaged a tremendous 11.8 yards a carry, while adding an average of 20 yards per catch. His biggest asset is his speed, where he's been clocked at 4.4 in the forty-yard dash in several combines this past spring. He's arguably the fastest football player in the state of Kentucky.

"His speed and strength as a runner makes him a threat to get to the end zone every time he touches it," Turner said. "He practices the same way he plays - 100%"
