A four-star prospect, Hardy stands at 6-foot tall and 170 pounds. While Hardy is slight in size, he makes up for it in many ways. "I know the game of football well," said Hardy. "I'm a savvy player. I'm elusive and I don't make many mistakes," he said. "I do miss many tackles. I just know how to play when I'm on the field."
Hardy still sees room for improvement in his game. "I know I'm not a dominant player. I can still get faster, bigger and stronger. There are just a lot of things I can work on. I want to be more of a leader on the field and help my teammates get better," he continued.
So does Hardy favor any specific schools at this point? "I couldn't answer that," he said. "It's wide open right now. I don't have a favorite," he continued.
Kentucky will get Hardy on campus this weekend for its Junior Day. Hardy is still learning about the Wildcats. "I don't know much. I'm hoping to make it up this weekend for their Junior Day and learn a few things," he continued.
There won't be a decision coming soon for Hardy, but he does have an idea of how he wants things to play out. "I want to narrow it down to before my senior year starts," he said. "Maybe five to seven schools at that point. Hopefully I'll know sometime during the year or maybe after," said Hardy.
"The number one thing in choosing a school would be talking it over with my parents," he said. "The school and the education are important. It would have to be somewhere that I can see myself playing and somewhere that can help me be successful after football in my career. Also, my relationship with the coaches is important."
