Updated Kentucky 2015 Rankings

Updated Kentucky 2015 Rankings

Scout's preseason prospect rankings for the state of Kentucky.

1. Damien Harris, RB, Madison Southern
Fast, explosive back who has been a phenom since his freshman season. Also a good pass receiver and blocker. Remains uncommitted but Ohio State and Kentucky are battling other schools.

2. Eli Brown, LB, Warren East
Kentucky commit is a fine athlete with long arms. Also a good offensive player in high school, but future is likely as an outside linebacker, especially as he continues to fill out.

3. Elijah Sindelar, QB, Caldwell County
Nice sized kid who is athletic and can make plays when they break down. Has to polish his game, but we think he'll end up doing that at Purdue. Like his upside a lot.

4. Grayson Miller, S, Scott County
It surprised quite a few folks when he earned a Michigan State offer and took it this Summer, but not those who had seen him play. Bit of a sleeper, but big, smart, very good ball skills and can play in the box.

5. Mason Wolfe, OT, Henderson County
Nice, big frame and moves his feet well for a kid of that size. Showed well at the NFTC this summer. Nice pickup for Kentucky.

6. Reese Ryan, QB, Lexington Catholic
Smart, accurate passer. Not real real big, but knows where to go with the football and gets it there.

7. Emmitt Smith, LB, Warren Central
Tons of natural talent, but best position is in question. If he continues to add weight, his hand may be down come college.

8. Branden Johnson, DT, Dixie Heights
Eastern Michigan, in our opinion, stole one here. High motor kid who gets off the ball quickly and gets into the backfield.
