Whichever way you want to look at it, Kentucky football is 4-0 in 2021. While the Wildcats were busy in Columbia, their incoming recruits were busy on the preps gridiron the last few days.
Here’s how future Kentucky football stars spent their weekend:
Kiyaunta Goodwin: 5-Star OT, Charlestown (IN)
Charlestown won their fourth-straight game Friday night with a 38-0 victory over Scottsburg. Behind Indiana’s No. 1 OT, his team rushed for 332 yards in the shutout to improve to 4-2 on the season.
Tyreese Fearbry: 4-Star Edge Rusher, Perry Traditional Academy (Pittsburgh, PA)
Perry Traditional Academy dropped to 1-3 after losing to Brashear 32-18. Fearbry — and the rest of the Commodore defense for that matter — were run all over on Friday night. They gave up 269 yards of Brashear’s 299 total on the ground.
Keaten Wade: 4-Star LB, Summit (Spring Hill, TN)
The Wade twins helped lead Summit to a 39-7 victory against Beech Friday night, improving to 5-0 on the season. Keaten Wade’s defense held their opponents to 52 passing yards and 3.6 yards per play.
