At 6-foot-5, 280-pounds, Zach West already has a college ready body going into his senior year of high school. But West doesn't just look the part. He is a skilled player as well.
"My strengths are pass blocking and finishing the block," said West. "My footwork is good for my size. I have quick feet to get around the edge," he said.
West led Lexington Christian to a Class A State Championship this year with impressive performances that only got better as the year progressed.
"I think I played very well," he said. "I don't think this is the best I can do. Towards the middle of this year, I started playing really well and played the best football of my life by the end of the year," he continued.
West also recently received an offer from his hometown university.
"I was told by coach (Chuck) Smith that I would get an offer at the end of May," he said. "Coach Smith called and wanted to know if I could meet with him on Wednesday," said West.
West visited Kentucky for one of its spring practice sessions and got a chance to see the Wildcats in action again, but also came away with something else.
"I talked to coach (Joker) Phillips and coach Smith. Towards the end of the meeting, coach Phillips offered," he said.
So has the offer changed things for West?
"I'm still really wide open," he said "I was kind of looking towards the end of the year (to make my decision). I might make an early commitment towards the end of the summer, but I'm not sure."
Zach West is a three-star prospect according to Scout.com.
