The 2015 quarterback decision may rest solely on if the Kentucky coaching staff – in particular coach Neal Brown – can identify one that is capable of running the air raid offense. It has even been rumored that the coaching staff may not take one at all this year. My thought is that you should have at least one quarterback in every class but I’m not coaching this team, am I?
Kentucky has struck out on the reportedly top two QB’s they wanted. Jarrett Stidham, the number one over-all pro-style QB in the 2015 class. Jarrett is originally from Kentucky but has spent most of his youth in Texas. He is in love with Texas Tech and proved that by pledging his services to them on March 7th of this year.
Elijah Sindelar was the other and also had been offered by Kentucky and is a Princeton, Kentucky native. It seemed at first, that the two liked each other a lot and had most of us thinking he was the 2015 QB most likely to commit. Suddenly, like a high school relationship, the love affair ended and Sindelar committed to Purdue. What went wrong is not known; did the coaching staff decide that he wasn’t the full package? Or did Kentucky decide not pursue him due to the fact that he is a great baseball player and may be drafted straight out of high school ? We may not know that answer for quite some time but I have all the confidence in the world in this coaching staff and they will do right by all parties concerned.
Let it not be said that this coaching staff won’t go after the best. Enter Drew Lock, a 6’ 3” 195 lb. pro-style QB who hails from Lee’s Summit, Missouri and is rated as the number two pro-style QB in the country. Drew has a host of offers from across the country and may be a long shot to land in Kentucky but the coaching staff will not back down from anyone and if Drew shows interest, then this staff will be all over him. Check out Drew’s highlights below.
Another offer has gone out to duel-threat QB, Lorenzo Nunez. Lorenzo (6’2” 181 lb) is rated as the number six duel-threat QB in the country and also has a host of offers. In my opinion this kid has the juice and has proven it many times at the camps that he has attended, by consistently finishing as one of the top offensive players each time. Lorenzo’s highlights are below.
One other guy I want to introduce to you today is Alex Hornibrook, a 5.5 3 – star pro-style QB from Malvern, Pennsylvania. I don’t know a lot about him yet but he has nice measurables standing at 6’ 4” and weighting 200 lbs. The coaching staff recently contacted him and is planning on visiting him to watch him throw. I do like his highlight reel and have provided it below.
