UK Recruiting

UK football hosting recruits for UNC game

The Kentucky football team is taking advantage of Saturday's game with North Carolina to host one of its biggest weekends of the year.

Among those expected to be at Rupp Arena is one of UK's top remaining in-state targets, Simon Kenton running back Miles Simpson, who will make his official visit.

UK will also host several top out-of-state prospects, the highest-rated being Eric Mack, an offensive lineman from Calhoun County, S.C. who has committed to South Carolina.

UK will also have two other prospects on hand from South Carolina who have committed to other schools: three-star running back Jerrell Priester (Fairfax), a Vanderbilt commit, and three-star defensive tackle Brice Laughlin (Summerville), a Maryland commit.

Others scheduled to attend include Dale Trimble, a cornerback from Gadsden (Ala.); Rajaan Bennett, a running back from Powder Springs (Ga.); Lamar Ivey, a receiver from Mebane (N.C.); and Anterrio Sloan, a cornerback from West Helena (Ark.).

Two top juniors will also make visits, including Jon Davis, a 6-foot-3, 230-pound athlete with offers from UK, Louisville, Illinois and Purdue. Jesse Hayes, a 6-4, 230-pounder from Cincinnati Moeller, is also expected to attend.
