College football high school recruiting is heading up with June quickly approaching. Commitments and lists are being made with official visits season just around the corner. On Wednesday afternoon, Kentucky got some good news.

Cincinnati (Ohio) Withrow cornerback Terhyon Nichols has trimmed his list of potential suitors to six Cincinnati, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio State, Penn State, and Pittsburgh were the listed finalists.

Nichols (5-10, 166) is the No. 280 ranked prospect and the No. 8 player in Ohio via the On3 Industry Ranking. On3 is specifically high on the defensive back ranking Nichols inside the top 200 and the top 25 at cornerback. Vince Marrow is running point on this recruitment for UK.

The four-star prospect has official visits with Pittsburgh (June 2), Penn State (June 16), and Michigan (June 23) scheduled. Nichols received a scholarship offer from Ohio State on May 8 making the Buckeyes the latest contender in this recruitment. Kentucky hosted the cornerback prospect for an unofficial visit on March 28.

UK currently has eight scholarship cornerbacks on the roster in 2023 and each has multiple years of eligibility remaining. However, this is a premium position that must consistently be addressed. Some key cornerback targets are emerging. Terhyon Nichols is near the top of the board.

The Cats now must get the blue-chip prospect on campus for an official visit.
