Kentucky Offers 7th Grader


If his parents could accept a binding agreement (today) with UK there would be no offer. This gesture will get Stoops and Kentucky plenty of publicity and that’s the plan.

Kentucky extended a scholarship offer to 7th grader and 13-year-old Jairus Brents. Brents attended Kentucky’s football camp over the weekend.Brents, from Indiana, is a corner in the class of 2018. Although it’s an accomplishment to get offered so early, he says it’s not that big of a deal, via ESPN.

“It’s not a big deal. It’s just an offer,” Brents said.

“It’s a good accomplishment, but I’m focusing on being the best cornerback ever and working hard.”

The 5-8, 152-pound Brents was placed into a group of 2014 receivers at Kentucky’s camp, and he picked off three passes and broke up several others.
