I had a great talk with 2017 commit Mac Jones this morning. He is a 6’2″ 170 lb. QB from Jacksonville, FL. I really appreciate him doing this and hopefully this is just the first of many recruit interviews to come! Let’s see what he had to say.
Q: How do you feel about the current team and their spot in the SEC?
A: Kentucky is clearly rising. For UK to consistently play at a high level week after week is very impressive. We hang in with biggest, fastest, and strongest players in the country.
Q: What made you commit to UK and who primarily recruited you?
A: The first thing to jump out at me was the hospitality of the coaching staff. Along with the new facilities and academic variety, I felt UK would be the best fit for me. I had previously been in contact with coach Dawson at WVU before he moved to UK. He and Max Drisko are the two who primarily recruited me.
Q: Are there any currently committed players that you are excited to play with?
A: The whole 2017 class will be and is loaded. I can’t wait to play with Russ (Yeast), Charles (Reeves), and Walker. Along with Mike Warren and hopefully James Hudson blocking for me.
Q: Now for the fun stuff! What is your favorite place to eat and what do you order?
A: My favorite place to eat is defiantly Chik-Fil-A. I always get 12 piece nuggets with a vanilla milkshake
Q: Is there a movie coming out that you are looking forward to seeing?
A: My All American
Again, thanks to Mac for giving me this interview. He seems like a great kid and I hope to see him succeed at a high level when he steps foot on campus.
