Kentucky is in prime position to land the services of another one of America’s top offensive line prospects. Stonks in the Big Blue Wall are soaring and Aamil Wagner may be the next brick added to Mark Stoops’ Kentucky football infrastructure.
A 6-foot-6, 265 pound athlete from Dayton, Oh., Wagner is On3’s No. 110 overall player and No. 9 offensive tackle in the 2022 class. Wagner watched the Wildcats defeat ULM 45-10 alongside Kiyaunta Goodwin. He could return for another game in Lexington before he ultimately announces his decision at the All-American Bowl.
UK feels like home for Wagner
Notre Dame is considered Kentucky’s top competition in Wagner’s recruitment. He also recently visited Penn State and Ohio State. In a conversation with On3’s Zack Carpenter, Wagner said UK feels like home.
“I think Kentucky offers a really good home environment, especially with my brother there now,” Wagner told On3. “I know a lot of people in the program like coach [Mark] Stoops and [recruiting coordinator Vince] Marrow. I’ve known them for a long time now. As far as the football aspect their offensive coordinator, [Liam] Coen, runs a lot of wide zones, a lot of play actions and a lot of concepts that work well for me.”On3+
Wagner’s older brother, Ahmad, spent two seasons in Lexington after beginning his career on the basketball court at Iowa. Dubbed “Ahmad Flagner” for drawing pass interference penalties, he recently joined the UK coaching staff as a graduate assistant.
Best Offensive Line Class in America?
Kentucky is investing heavily in offensive linemen in the 2022 recruiting class. Kiyaunta Goodwin headlines the impressive group that also features commitments from four-star prospect Grant Bingham and legacy recruit Nik Hall. The Wildcats are also pursuing Grayson Morgan. Considered a four-star prospect by some recruiting services, the Nashville offensive tackle recently told KSR that his recruitment is down to Kentucky and Vanderbilt.
Big men lead the way. In order to continue climbing the SEC ladder, the Wildcats are investing heavily in the trenches. If the chips fall the right way, Kentucky could have the best offensive line class in America on National Signing Day.
