All five of the University of Kentucky’s in-state football commitments will be in action this weekend. Here’s where to see them:

Kash Daniel (Paintsville): One week after scoring the game-winning two-point conversion in a thrilling victory over rival Pikeville, Daniel will be back in action with a home game against out-of-state Ridgeview (Va.). Daniel has run for 257 yards and six touchdowns through three games, while recording 45 tackles on defense. (Game time: Friday at 7:30 p.m.)

Zy’Aire Hughes (McCracken County): The future UK wide receiver will lead McCracken County in a tough matchup at Mayfield, the winner of the past three Class A state championships. Hughes has 322 yards rushing and 156 yards receiving so far this season. (Game time: Friday at 7 p.m. CDT)

Drake Jackson (Woodford County): The Yellowjackets play at Marion County, their first road game after playing the first three games of the season in Versailles. (Game time: Friday at 7:30 p.m.)

Davonte Robinson (Henry Clay): Robinson and Henry Clay have a home game against city rival Tates Creek, which is 1-2 on the season. Robinson has 162 yards on just eight carries — plus 14 solo tackles on defense — through two games this season. (Game time: Friday at 7:30 p.m.)

Landon Young (Lafayette): The Generals will try to recover from last week’s 70-14 loss to nationally ranked Trinity with what should be a much easier test in a home game against Boone County, which has started the season 0-3. UK’s top class of 2017 recruiting target Jedrick Wills — who visited for last weekend’s season opener against Louisiana-Lafayette — also plays for Lafayette High. (Game time: Friday at 7:30 p.m.)
