I had the opportunity to to talk to Chance and here’s what he had to say! 

What made you choose Kentucky?

“I always wanted to play big time college football and this was the SEC also, I have a great chance of starting my first year and the community felt like family. No matter where i went there was nothing negative in Lexington at all.”

What do you hope to accomplish at UK?

“Goal is to use this scholarship to get a college education and start a normal life. I want to contribute to the team as much as possible wether i’m kicking game winners or just making extra points. I want the University to have one of the best, hard working, humbled kicker they ever had. Mostly make an impact and help this program.”

How do you feel about the football program at Kentucky as a whole? 

“It’s growing. I’ve seen past games and huge upsets Kentucky has pulled off and I know that we can compete in the SEC and even big power house teams.”

Are there any currently committed players that you are excited to play with?

“As a kicker I won’t be working with any of the commits as much. I’m excited to meet the guys get to know them more and get to work with the specialist already on the team and helping each other get better. All in all I really can’t wait to watch what our players and commits have to show for Kentucky.”

Is there a sense of brother brotherhood with the 2018 class?

“Yes. Haven’t even met the guys and I already feel like we’re family. Can’t wait to meet and get to know these guys and help each other get better.”

If you were able to do anything other than play football, what would it be and why?

“Probably be a normal student. Student Sections and help out with my high school because I always want to contribute in anyway possible.”

What do you like doing when you’re not playing football?

“Relaxing and recovering from football. Other things would probably be like spring sports like soccer and any events like student section things anything with highschool.” 

What’s your favorite place to eat at and what do you order?

“probably chipotle with a chicken quesadilla.” 

Favorite emoji?

“gotta be 🤷🏻‍♂️”

Anything you want BBN to know? 

“special teams will be a factor for opponents to look out for. I will make sure I give my all every year, game, and kick.”

Football: Ukfansallday’s Exclusive interview with WR commit, Marvin Alexander Jr.

Q: When did you start playing football and when did you realize football was something you wanted to commit to?

Marvin Alexander Jr: “I started when I was five years old. I realized that it was something I wanted to commit to when I missed it so much during the off-seasons when I was younger.”

Q: Who in the NFL would you compare yourself to?

Marvin Alexander Jr: “I’m not sure but who I try to model my game after is AJ Green (of the Cincinnati Bengals).”

Q: Next up I got a fan question from Ty Buck, what made you want to come to Kentucky?

Marvin Alexander Jr: “The coaching staff, the players and I like the message that they’re giving out to us recruits.”

Q: Another fan question from Ty Buck, what is your favorite pregame pump up song or songs?

Marvin Alexander Jr: “Before every game I listen to “Go Crazy” by Young Jeezy.”

Q: Kentucky has recently had great success with getting guys out of Chaminade-Madonna, getting guys like Akeem Hayes, Davonan Hawkins, Keontra Smith (2019 class), and yourself. Why do you think Kentucky has been able to get so many guys out of there?

Marvin Alexander Jr: “I think because we all come from the same program so our mindset is all the same and since visiting UK, we’ve all fell in love and decided that’s where we want to spend our next 3-4 years. Trust me , if we had other players with Kentucky offers we would have many more commits.”

Q: The final question I got for you is what is your message to the BBN and tell us what we can expect from you in the next 3-4 years.

Marvin Alexander Jr: “I can’t wait to be apart of the family! What you can expect for the next 3-4 years is touchdowns on Saturdays.”

Follow up Article: Jamari Brown commits to Kentucky

As I’m sure you’ve heard by now, Kentucky picked up another commitment for its 2018 class, Jamari Brown. The 3 star DB out of South Florida is the second secondary commit in two days, the other being 4 star DB Stanley Garner. This commitment is huge litteraly and figuratively, standing at 6’3, Brown is another South Florida guy Kentucky has gotten and that area is usually dominated by Louisville, Florida, Florida State, and Miami. Prying these past two commits away from there is a huge boost for our recruiting. With this commitment, Kentucky now has the 16th ranked class in the nation according to 247 sports! Another great day to be a cat! Welcome to the BBN, Jamari!
