Kentucky has dipped into Florida in recent years, getting linebackers Danny Trevathan, Ronnie Sneed and Johnny Williams. Another Sunshine State linebacker has the Cats high on his list. KSR spoke with Denzel Drone about his recruitment.

Drone, a 6-foot-2 225 pound defensive end, gathered 97 tackles, 11 sacks and forced four fumbles last season for Plant City (Fl.) High School. He currently projects as a linebacker or even a fullback at the next level. "Some schools want me to play fullback or outside linebacker," said Drone.

Drone's receiving attention from several schools, but his interest is highest in a select few. "I have a high interest in South Florida, Wake Forest, Kentucky, Troy State and Western Kentucky," he said. "Everybody's pretty much even," he finished.

Denzel hasn't taken any visits outside of the state, but he has been to South Florida. "I'm still planning out (my official visits)," said Drone. With his plans for visits still in the works, Drone has no timetable for making his college decision.

Drone's size and speed (4.65) project well as a linebacker at the next level, but he still sees room to get better. "I think I do a lot of things well. I get off blocks, take on blocks. I want to get better at every aspect of the game so I can get to the NFL," said Drone.

Scout.com currently ranks Denzel as a two-star prospect and the number 62 strongside linebacker in the nation.
