"I committed to Kentucky last night," said Joe Mansour. "I spoke to coach [Joker] Phillips and let him know I was ready to commit. I went up for a camp. I kicked for them, and they offered me a scholarship in mid-June." "I am really excited about the opportunity. There are a couple of guys from LaGrange that are already up there. Kentucky is an SEC school. That was a big reason for my decision. I didn't want to miss out on the opportunity." Mansour is very familiar with several people in Lexington. "It's basically home for me up there," he said. "DeMoreo Ford is up there still. He graduated with my brother. Randall Burden is up there. Braxton Kelley is up there. Pat Simmons is up there. Then three players signed with them from our school this year [Qua Huzzie, Tristian Johnson, Demetri Merritt]. It just feels like home." "They recruited me as both a kicker and punter. I am good at both kick-offs and punts. I don't really have a favorite." Mansour averaged 41.4 yards per punt during the 2008 season. He kicked more than 83-percent of his kick-offs in the end zone.
