Drayton talks about his trip to the Bluegrass

Scout.com 3-star safety prospect Chris Drayton of Evans, GA took unofficial visits with his two favorites - Louisville and Kentucky - on Sunday and Monday.

For months Chris Drayton, a Scout.com 3-star safety prospect from Lakeside (GA) High School, has listed Louisville and Kentucky as his favorites. On Sunday, Drayton made an unofficial visit with Louisville and then drove east to Lexington for a Monday morning visit with the Wildcats.

"It went pretty good," he said of his time on the U of L campus. "It was good because I got a chance to watch them practice. I was able to check out the facilities and the dorms. It was just an unofficial visit so I couldn't do to much."

It was late June when the 6-foot-2, 205-pound safety first indicated that he had received scholarship offers from the two in-state rivals and has remained consistent that they remain even as favorites.

"We went by Kentucky on Monday morning," he continued. "We were able to see the facilities there and got a chance to look at the campus. It was good because school was in so I could get a feel for what it's really like there. They have a nice campus."

Drayton said that he wants to get a closer look at the two on official visits later this year.

"I plan on taking them, but I haven't set any dates or anything yet," he said.

Drayton is ranked among the nation's top 100 safety prospects by Scout.com
