Another one of UK's highly touted football commitments will play in front of a national audience Friday night.
Wide receiver Jabari Greenwood and Gonzaga (D.C.) travel to Centreville (Va.) for a regional matchup of two of the nation's best teams. The game will be shown live at 8 p.m. on ESPNU.
Greenwood had seven catches for 98 yards and two touchdowns despite limited playing time in last week's season-opening, 42-3 rout of Neshaminy (Pa.). Friday's game should be more of a contest, with Centreville ranked No. 7 nationally in the latest USA Today poll.
Rivals.com ranks Greenwood as the No. 43 wide receiver in the class of 2015.
Never miss a local story.
"He's a really, really big target downfield," Rivals analyst Adam Friedman told the Herald-Leader earlier this year. "He's a guy who can really go out and get it for the quarterback. He's got good hands, and when he is able to break the press coverage at the line of scrimmage and he gets out into the open field, it is very, very difficult for a cornerback to stop him.
"He's a guy who's going to require a lot of safety help at the next level."
The 6-foot-4, 190-pound prospect joins Ohio's Alex Stump — who played Sunday on ESPNU — as UK's two wide receiver commitments so far for 2015.
Gonzaga's roster also includes highly touted cornerback Marcus Lewis, who Rivals.com ranks as the No. 90 overall prospect in the class of 2015.
Lewis recently decommitted from Florida and shortly thereafter announced a top four that included the Gators, Michigan, Oregon and Miami. However, Greenwood is continuing to recruit him to Kentucky, and UK's coaches have also stayed in touch.
Mark Stoops was the first college coach to call Lewis when the September contact period began this week.
Three-star cornerback Jeremiah Dinson is visiting UK this weekend, and he could leave town as the Cats' latest commitment for the class of 2015.
Dinson told the Herald-Leader on Thursday morning that he was already on his way to Lexington from his hometown in the Miami area. The 5-foot-11 prospect recently named a final three of UK, Arkansas and Duke.
This will be Dinson's first visit to UK, which hosts Ohio University on Saturday.
"If everything goes as planned then the chance is high that I commit this weekend," Dinson told the Herald-Leader on Thursday.
UK currently has 13 commitments for 2015, including three-star cornerback Kei Beckham and four-star safety Marcus Walker.
■ Madison Southern star Damien Harris will take his first official visit this weekend. The nation's No. 1 running back is scheduled to go to Ohio State for Saturday's showdown with Virginia Tech.
Harris was in Lexington last Saturday for an unofficial visit scheduled around UK's season-opening victory over Tennessee-Martin. He'll return to town next Friday for Madison Southern's game at Paul Laurence Dunbar.
Harris is also considering Alabama, Florida and Texas A&M and is planning to announce his decision Dec. 13.
■ Alabama linebacker Amonte Caban — one of UK's top targets at the position — is no longer considering the Wildcats.
Caban told SportsTalkSC.com that he has narrowed his list to South Carolina, Tennessee and Louisville. A decision is expected in the next few days.
