It looks like a bumper crop of high school football talent in Kentucky this season.
Nationally-rated quarterbacks Patrick Towles of Highlands, who has committed to Kentucky, and Zeke Pike of Dixie Heights, who will sign with Auburn, aren't the only Division I prospects.
Josh Harris of Mason County, who's UK-bound, also figures to be in the conversation for Mr. Football, along with Central's Anthony Wales, who has a chance to break Derek Homer's state career rushing record. (Wales has offers from UK and Louisville, but is undecided on college.)
Manual's Thomas Chapman and Jeffersontown's Daniel Ross have committed to UK, and Paducah Tilghman's J.D. Harmon has been offered by the Cats.
Never miss a local story.
Bowling Green's Joe Manley, a 6-foot-6, 320-pound lineman, picked Louisville over Kentucky. Jeremy Clark of Madisonville committed to Michigan.
The state's junior class is headed by Trinity standouts James Quick, a receiver, and Jason Hatcher, a linebacker.
