College Football

National Signing Day was Wednesday for College Football teams across the country. The Univ. of Ky Football team under Head Coach Mark Stoops hauled in a strong class from top to bottom. Stoops believes this to be his best class, featuring elite talent, game-changers and guys that change the scoreboard. A varied group, Stoops said they were exactly the kind of kids that they want representing the program. The key for this class was the local recruits, led by five-star recruit Landon Young from Lexington, Ky., Drake Jackson from Versailes, Ky., and Kash Daniel from Paintsville, Ky. Henry Clay's Davonte Robinson and McCracken County's Zy'Aire Hughes also signed with UK.

One of the biggest wins for Kentucky came from Jordan Griffin. A four-star recruit out of Atlanta, Ga. Griffin was rated as a top 50 cornerback by every major recruiting service; as high as 15th in the nation by Rivals.com, and chose Kentucky over Auburn, Clemson and Stanford. In total, Kentucky received signatures from 25 H.S. and JUCO players and the Wildcats are rated 29th by Rivals.com, ESPN has Kentucky at 32nd, 247Sports lists Kentucky at number 33, and they're 38th by Scout.com.

* Kentucky was not the only school benefiting from a successful National Signing Day as several area players also signed to play College Football.

Dalton Frasure (Prestonsburg) - Morehead State
Jordan Combs (Perry County Central) – Upike
Tyler McCallister (Paintsville) – Upike
Seth Napier (Perry County Central) – Upike
Xondre Willis (Belfry) – Upike
Tyler Lawson (Knott County Central) – Union
Chandler Rowe (Shelby Valley) – Cumberlands
T.J. Dotson (Belfry) – Cumberlands
Chase Soler (Allen Central) - Kentucky Christian
