Even though it's a dead period, forbidding official visits on campus, schools can still host recruits on unofficial visits. As wide receiver Jordan Anthony wrapped up a trip to Lexington where he committed to the Wildcats, defensive end Tomiwa Durojaiye spent two days unofficially touring Kentucky's campus. A 6-foot-5, 255-pound defensive end, Durojaiye is a three-star prospect according to 247 Sports and Rivals. He hails from unfamiliar recruiting territory, Middletown, Delaware. Durojaiye is the latest edge defender recruited from the northeast by defensive coordinator Brad White. Last month Durojaiye officially visited Georgia Tech, South Carolina and Vanderbilt. Shortly after making the trips he cut his list to five, adding West Virginia and Kentucky to his finalists. A late riser on the recruiting trail, Durojaiye believes his best football has yet to come. “They (Kentucky coaches) understand I’m a guy they’ll need to develop but they all see that I have a huge upside and they like that about me,” Durojaiye told KSR in late June. “They would love for me to get down there. They see me similar to Josh Paschal.” White has struck out with similar edge recruits from the Northeast. Durojaiye could finally give the Cats a win in the tertiary recruiting territory.
