Christian County (Ky) wide receiver Keyron Catlett is among a talented crop of Bluegrass State prospects in the Class of 2017 and he spent Saturday attending WKU's Junior Day.
While on The Hill, Catlett and the other visitors spent time touring the program's facilities, visiting with coaches and caught an exciting come-from-behind win by the basketball team in E.A. Diddle Arena.
"Everything went great at WKU," he said. "When we got there the coaches introduced themselves, then the showed us around the facility and the locker room. We tried on jerseys and then went to the game."
The 5-foot-10, 170-pound prospect currently holds a scholarship offer from Arkansas State, while others, including Kentucky, Louisville and Notre Dame, are expressing an interest.
"I visited Arkansas State a few weeks ago and UK wants to me come to their Junior Day," he said.
What college coaches like about Catlett's game is his ability and determination to make the catch.
"Just how I have fun with the game," he said. "They say I'm an exciting player. I'm physical and I can go up and get the ball. They say it's very rare in my class that a receiver can go up and get it like I can, real smooth with the ball in my hands."
Catlett led Christian County with 62 receptions for 797 yards and seven touchdowns last fall.
Still early in the process, Catlett realizes the impact of his future decision and both the enjoyment and stress that comes from it.
"The recruiting process is kinda stressful, but it's a blessing."
