Kentucky freshman Jordan Aumiller was delighted when he heard former Boyle County teammate Lamar Dawson had been offered a scholarship by Kentucky.

"I talked to him and told him more offers would come and just to be patient and look around and try to get to know all the coaches. Go where he thinks is best," said Aumiller, a linebacker playing under assistant Chuck Smith, a former head coach at Boyle.

Aumiller played with Dawson, a tight end-linebacker, last year and says there's no doubt he can play at Kentucky.

"I have no doubt at all he can play her. He is a big, strong athlete. I thought all along he would get an offer from here. He has proven to everybody he can play at this level and I think he will be a very good player," Aumiller said.

Will Aumiller try to sell him on Kentucky?

"I am going to do that and be in his ear. I will do my best to get him here," Aumiller said. "He seemed pretty excited about the offer, but it's hard to tell because he doesn't say much. He's going to look around and see what else comes up, but I think he likes it here and like me being here and I am trying to sell that to him.

"I think he will be a linebacker. He just has a natural instinct for the ball like that. He has great size to be a linebacker, too. He could do a lot of things here that fit in very, very well."
