Paintsville High School football star Kash Daniel said Wednesday that he plans to announce his college decision Aug. 13.
Daniel — a linebacker in the class of 2016 — has emerged in recent weeks as one of the state’s top high school football prospects. He earned a University of Kentucky scholarship offer late last month, and Louisville and South Carolina quickly extended offers as well. Ohio State and Florida are also showing interest.
The 6-foot-3 prospect tweeted Wednesday that he plans to take campus visits and narrow his list to four schools by the end of June. He will then announce his college decision just before the start of his senior season of high school.
247Sports recently ranked Daniel as a four-star prospect and the No. 9 inside linebacker nationally for the class of 2016. He’s also considered the state’s No. 3 rising senior behind UK offensive line commitments Drake Jackson and Landon Young.
