Cats offer Nigel Malone

Nigel Malone (2011-CB) who plays at City College of San Francisco informed me this evening UK has extended him an offer and wants him to visit. Malone has also received offers from Hawaii, Tulsa and Iowa State. He is receiving interest from others programs including Oregon.

Mike Summers is handling his recruitment for Kentucky and visited practice during the spring. Remember his teammate Brandon Ford is also being recruited by the Cats. Malone told me, "It would be pretty cool to play with Brandon at the next level. He brings a lot to the table." He informed me Kentucky is his current leader.

Malone will try and take as many visits as possible and hopes to have a decision in November. He can enroll in December which is typically a bonus for Juco players. When asked about his game he said, "I'm pretty much balanced, a cover corner who can break on the ball."

Malone is currently listed at 5'10" and 185lbs. He runs a 4.45 forty yard dash time.


  1. This guy could be the next Deion Sanders, however I wish we would not waste scholarships on Juco players. I know everyone will mention Aaron Boone, Stevie Johnson and a defensive back or two but don't forget the many that never panned out.

  2. You know, obviously it is not my call, but I tend to agree. Most JUCOs are here two years and only contribute one year. I think JUCOs should only be used to fill an extreme need on an emergency basis.
