    That's pretty bold talk. I can think of a couple that I would have a hard time putting him in front of and they played against much better teams.

    Thanks, varsityblues, just now learning about this young man. From original post thought he was an offensive jewel. Misinterpreted, my bad. Having had a high ankle sprain myself, I know how debilitating a Grade 2 or 3 can be. Stability took forever to come back for these old bones. Most misunderstood injury out there.

    I find it comical that somehow because he isn't leading Waggener to the state title or his stats aren't good in some ppls eyes, that equates to him not being that good. News flash, Alabama doesn't recruit, they go find the best players and offer them, you don't pick them, they pick you. Much the same way Kentucky does in basketball. This kid is the real deal and will prove it when he hits the next level, regardless of what happens in his HS career. And for the doesn't pass the eye candy test folks.....he is the #1 2018 player in the state ( #2 is his teammate Tahj Rice) and the #19 CB in the country. Unlike basketball, 2 players a team doesn't make. Waggener for the most part is an average team trending toward good.

    He has played against the best and locked them down as a freshman, without any weight training. He has gone against all the top WRs in camps around the country. He still comes out on top. So not sure what else you would like the kid to prove for you. So let me rephrase. According to top college head coaches in this country, he is one of the top DBs to ever come out of Kentucky.

    Well obviously my talent evaluation skills probably shouldn't be called into question considering I've been watching the best DB in KY (playing at 70% mind you) playing against primarily running teams, and haven't had access to the "medicals" or the all-22 film. My bad. You have a dog in the fight - I don't. No need to get snippy. I too was thinking more offensively than defensively, but still...

    I led my statement with "no offense". That should excuse any of the negative comment correct? My apologies for being defensive of my players, didn't mean to offend you.

    It's all good. Only acceptable if it's your player or your kid!

    He will be the highest recruited player out of the state of KY IMO, and defiantly a candidate for Mr. Football. But sort of like the Heisman, it's the offensive side of the ball that usually takes it, so I think it would be a tough get for him. Talent is definitely there
