UK Early Enrollment Updates

Greenville (SC) wide receiver Marckus Boswell is awaiting word from the test center regarding his ACT test he took earlier this month.

"I'm still waiting on my test scores to come back," Boswell said. "I should find out by Friday."

The 5-foot-10, 165 pound wide receiver broke several records at Greenville (SC) HS, where he graduated this past year. In his four year career, Boswell nearly amassed over 5,000 yards and scored over 50 touchdowns.

"I've been in Lexington since the summer," Boswell said a few weeks ago. "I've been working out and trying to get faster and stronger. I will be ready to go once I take the test."

Ranked as one of the top 25 players as a senior by SuperPrep after a junior campaign that saw him be named Regional Player of the Year and an All-America by Student Sports magazine when he totaled 131 receptions for 2,091 yards and 25 scores, Boswell is expected to help add additional depth.

"Marckus is tough as nails," Boswell's high school coach, Jim Sosebee said. "He has great hands, makes tough catches, and is great with the ball after the catch. He's a competitor who wants the ball in the tough time of the game."

Boswell chose the Wildcats over a a scholarship from Steve Spurrier and the Gamecocks, who offered on Signing Day. Florida State and Miami also heavily recruited Boswell after committing to Kentucky.

Meanwhile, former Marion-Franklin HS standout DT/OT Michael Cross, currently enrolled in Garden City (Kan.) Junior College, will take his visit to Kentucky with his father and talk to the staff about enrolling early.

"We're gonna talk to them about enrolling in January or not," Cross said. "I'll know more about it on Sunday. I just got a pretty good job, so if I can't enroll, I'll save up some money for school."

The Columbus (Oh.) native turned down offers from Cincinnati, Akron, Bowling Green, Miami of Ohio, Ohio and Toledo when he chose Kentucky.

"Either way," Cross insisted. "I'm going to Kentucky. I know that's the place I wanna be and feel most comfortable."
