The newest member of the 2017 Kentucky commit list was nice enough to let me do a short interview on his commitment day! So, BBN here’s a quick way to learn more about this great young talent from Florida.
Q: I’ve seen from multiple sources that Eddie Gran was your primary recruiter, what do you like about Gran?

A: I am going on July 16th.
Q: Do you have any connections with any recruits or players UK currently has?
A: We just started talking today.
Q: So, some of them have reached out since you committed? Do you care to say who?
A: Jarren Williams, Walker Wood, & Jamin Davis
Q: Do you have a favorite NFL player and who would you say your style of play most compares to?
A: Josh huff even though he doesn’t play that much. I like how he’s not so big and tall but he plays that way, he’s not so fast but he had enough just to get in the end zone and he has great hands. I also like Chad johnsons play style even thought he’s not in the NFL.
Q: What’s your favorite restaurant and what do you order?
A: Chilis and I order Honey Chipotle chicken crispers.
Q: Currently watching a series on Netflix?
A: Dexter and just finished Prison Break.

I hope his personality shows through because just talking to him for a few minutes, I could tell he is going to be a fan favorite!!! Can’t wait to watch him walking the Cat Walk and playing on Saturdays!
The class of 2017 got a little boost today when Josh Ali, a 6’0″ WR from Hollywood, FL. This comes in at a great time due to the departures that has plagued Kentucky lately.
Ali is ranked as a three star recruit on most recruiting websites. He was recruited by Eddie Gran and had offers from Louisville, West Virginia, and Pitt among many others.
The love in that room for such a great kid and a chance to show that it’s not the size of the player but the heart and drive in them. Good luck with the next chapter in your life.
