Several UK Prospects Shine at Nike

Several UK Prospects separated themselves at the Nike Camp at Ohio State this past weekend. Kentucky is thought to be in the top 10 of several of the players that received Camp Honors. There were over 270 players at the camp and only 25 players are allowed to make the “All Camp Team”


DeAnthony Arnett: WR, Saginaw “showed that he was the top WR in the region and the top prospect in Michigan. According to sources, UK is in his top 7, but UK has a lot to overcome.

Zach Templin: OL, East Jessamine “projects at OLT at the next level, with good hips and footwork”. Considered one of the best O-linemen in Kentucky in an extremely deep O-line class for the state. He is thought to be a UK lean, but has not been offered by the CATS.


Clint Tucker: DT, East St. Louis “a beast on the interior who should only get better as he becomes more consistent, and better learns to use his hands and establish proper pad level”. Is a teammate of G Faulkner an early UK verbal, but is thought to be leaning towards a Big 12 team. If the CATS can get him, he immediately upgrades the team at DT, and gets early playing time (no later than as a freshman redshirt if he signs)

Lamar Dawson: MLB, Boyle County, “MVP Honors”. Lamar is one of the top recruits from Kentucky for the ’11 class. Chuck Smith, current UK Recruiting Coordinator was the Head Coach at Boyle County. He is thought to be a heavy UK lean, but losing him is certainly not out of the realm of possibility.

Glen Faulkner: DB, East St. Louis, “the next great skill position player”. Glen was one of the 1st 3 verbal commits for the ’11 class. Losing him is a possibility, but he does seem pretty solid. UK would like for his teammate (C Tucker) to be a package deal

Eliar Hardy: Pickerington Central, “great range”. He is one of the top Defensive Backs on the UK list for the ’11 season. He would add depth to an already deep position, but might come in and establish himself early.
