Lousiana RB Makes it Official

Baton Rouge (La.) Catholic high school standout Henry Minor made his commitment official to Kentucky over the weekend. Read comments about the Wildcats newest verbal commitment.

"The trip was excellent," Henry Minor said. "I think that I could really get use to Lexington. I think I was the only one to commit that was on the visit."

"I've been wanting to play in the SEC since I was little," Minor said. "Kentucky was my only offer in the SEC and they are coming off a great season this year. I think it's a great program that's on its way up."

The 5-foot-10, 170 pound athlete ran for 575 on 91 carries for 6 touchdowns while also adding 14 catches for 236 and 2 touchdowns receiving. He was used primarily as a speedy change of pace back with teammate Jeremy Stewart at Catholic.

"My freshmen and sophomore years I had a few injuries that slowed me down," Minor said, "but this year, coach gave me a chance at running back and then I played a lot of receiver and cornerback, as well as kick return and punt return, so I got to be on the field all the time."

While the staff has not given Minor a clear indication where he'll end up at the next level, the Baton Rouge (La.) native knows where he wants to play at Kentucky.

"Receiver is my favorite position," Minor explained. "(Kentucky) is recruiting me as an athlete. They said I could try out at any position I wanted to and that they would try their best to get me on the field as quick as possible."

Minor chose the Wildcats over Louisiana-Monroe, Louisiana-Lafayette and New Mexico State. He joins teammate Matthew Broha on the Wildcat commitment list.

"My best asset is my speed," Minor concluded. "Once I get in the open field, I find a way to avoid tackles because I'm good at getting away from people."
