Top stories from the state of Kentucky
The 2022 high school football season is coming to Bluegrass State. One of the state’s top leads is about to make a decision while another has reopened his hiring process. More on that and a few other storylines to follow in the state of Kentucky as we near another exciting season.
Oryend Fisher is about to make a decision
Fisher teased on his Instagram that a college decision is coming. The three stars made an official visit to West Virginia in June and did a walking tour in July to Vanderbilt after receiving a recent offer from Commodores. The Great Crossings product also has offers from Kentucky and Louisville, but this appears to be a battle between climbers and waiters.
Harkless reopens recruitment
Harkless made headlines Tuesday when he announced his resignation from Illinois and reopened his hiring process. The initial three-star defensive tactic was implemented for Illini’s return on June 5 after the official visit. Auburn, Cincinnati, Georgia, Kentucky, LSU, Ole Miss, Michigan, South Carolina, and Purdue are some of the other schools that have expanded their offering. Harkless tweeted the official offer from Ole Miss on Wednesday, so Lane Kiffin and the Rebels are definitely still playing and more schools are likely to follow.
Much welcomed CB now based in Kentucky
Following his commitment to Wake Forest on June 24, former Miami (Fla.) Christian full-back Antonio Robinson has now enrolled at Beechwood (Ky.) for his upcoming senior season. A four-star prospect, Robinson certainly adds some star power and will be considered one of the state’s best prospects going forward in the updated 2023 rankings.
Top 2024 leads keep stacking offers
Johnson received several new offers over the summer. The first from Tennessee, whose top-ranked prospects for 2024 impressed the Vols coaching staff at camp. The triple star was also highly rated by Louisville in July and received his latest offer from the Cardinals. Michigan State, Cincinnati, Baylor and Kentucky are his other notable offers right now, though that number will continue to rise.
