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): The Tigers put their 4-0 record on the line with a home game against Williamsburg, a fellow Class A school that is off to an 0-3 start. Daniel has run for 280 yards and seven touchdowns, thrown for 274 yards and four touchdowns and has been credited with 56 tackles (33 solos) through four games. (Game time: Friday at 7:30 p.m.)

Zy’Aire Hughes (McCracken County): Hughes and the Mustangs will play at home against Lift for Life Academy Charter (Mo.) in Saturday night’s McCracken Bowl. Hughes has run for 412 yards and caught 14 passes for 165 yards in four games this season. The Saturday kickoff means that Hughes will not be able to attend UK’s home game against Florida that night. (Game time: Saturday at 7 p.m. CDT)

Drake Jackson (Woodford County): The Yellowjackets are back on the road with a game at Nelson County. Woodford County scored a season-high 55 points in last week’s victory at Marion County, and the Jackets have topped 30 points in all four of their games this season. (Game time: Friday at 7:30 p.m.)

Davonte Robinson (Henry Clay): Robinson and Henry Clay travel to southeastern Kentucky for a game at Knox County. Robinson, who will be a cornerback at UK, has 165 yards rushing on 10 attempts in three games this season. He’s also been credited with 21 tackles (17 solos). (Game time: Friday at 7:30 p.m.)

Landon Young (Lafayette): Young will be the only UK commitment playing in the Lexington area Friday night, when his Generals have a home game against Scott County, the No. 2 team in the latest Class 6A rankings. Lafayette is No. 19. UK’s top class of 2017 recruiting target Jedrick Wills — who will visit for the Florida game Saturday — also plays for Lafayette. (Game time: Friday at 7:30 p.m.)
