ESPN released its first expanded football recruiting rankings for the class of 2019 on Monday morning, and five players from the state of Kentucky made the list.
South Warren defensive lineman Jacob Lacey is No. 116 overall, Trinity defensive end Stephen Herron is No. 137 overall, Glasgow offensive lineman Tanner Bowles is No. 217 overall, Scott County offensive lineman Bryan Hudson is No. 250 overall, and Louisville Christian wide receiver Milton Wright is No. 274 overall.
It’s an extraordinarily talented class of in-state football players, but it doesn’t appear that UK will land any of those five prospects.
