On Saturday, Kaden Moorman witnessed Kentucky beat Florida in Lexington for the first time in 35 years. On Sunday, he posted to Twitter that he’s ready to make a commitment.
Moorman, a three-star class of 2023 running back from Franklin County, intends to make his college decision this Friday, Oct. 8. Growing up roughly 40 minutes outside of Lexington in the state’s capital of Frankfort, the versatile 5-foot-10 athlete picked up an offer from associate head coach Vince Marrow and Kentucky back in the middle of June. Moorman has been trending toward UK ever since.
In addition to the ‘Cats, Moorman also holds Divison I offers from Wisconsin and Toledo.
Moorman received his offer from Marrow and the ‘Cats following an impressive camp outing over the summer. When the scholarship eventually came in, he couldn’t believe it.
“It’s so surreal. I’ve been playing football since I was four years old so it’s like crazy…” Moorman told KSR in June. “I love Kentucky. I had a Kentucky alumni, Ryan Timmons, he went to my high school.”
Moorman has seen a rise in his national ranking since he began his junior year with Franklin County, and he could continue to move up even higher.
Suiting up mainly as a running back, Moorman has totaled 777 rushing yards and 14 rushing touchdowns on 92 attempts through seven outings (111.0 yards per game) this season. Through the air, he’s caught 10 receptions for 124 additional yards. Moorman has also run back two kickoff returns for scores. Franklin County is 4-3 on the year with three more games left in the regular season.
Five total predictions for Moorman over at 247Sports and Rivals all have him landing with the home state ‘Cats. If he were to choose Kentucky, he would join three-star ATH Ty Bryant as the second commit for the class of 2023.
It feels like the Kroger Field atmosphere did the trick over the weekend. Get your dice ready…
