One of the fastest wide receivers in the south is Hoover's (AL.) Maudrecus Humphrey. The Kentucky Wildcats are making a play for the speedy prospect and Humphrey has been willing to listen.

In Joker Phillips's offense, the ability to stretch the field is a must, not just from the quarterback position, but also from the receiver spots. A player capable of doing so would be Maudrecus Humphrey. "I think I always pose a vertical threat," said Humphrey. "That's what coaches talk about when they look at me on film. I'm also an aggressive blocker, but my speed (4.34 forty) helps to carry me."

Several programs have inquired and offered scholarships to the three-star prospect but Humphrey is just taking his time in choosing a school. But he did mention a list of schools that come to mind. "I like Kentucky, Arkansas, Mississippi State, West Virginia, UAB and Ole Miss," said Humphrey. "I'm pretty interested in about every school that has recruited me," he finished.

Humphrey talked a little about his thoughts on Kentucky. "I've just always liked Kentucky. There's just something that stands out. They are a good team. I just like Kentucky," he said.

Humphrey has yet to schedule any visits, but a decision could come in the near future. "I'm thinking about committing mid-season. I'll see how it goes from there," Maudrecus said.

There are a couple things he'll be looking for in the school he chooses. "I would really like a school with a good football program. Also a good track program. I want to run track in college too," he said.

One school that you would assume would recruit Humphrey is the University of Alabama. Humphrey's father, Bobby Humphrey, was a star running back there in the 80s before playing in the NFL for the Denver Broncos. But that's not the case. "I've heard very little. Lately they haven't been recruiting me. I'm okay with that," said Humphrey.
