Wednesday Headlines: Kentucky a finalist for Bo Jackson

Good morning, BBN!

Bo Jackson, a 4-star running back out of Cleveland, Ohio, just included the Kentucky Wildcats in his final list.

He’s a junior at Villa Angela-St. Joseph High School, and he has lived up to his name. There’s no relation to the great Bo Jackson from Auburn, but when you have a name like that, you have no choice but to play the RB position and be a star!

It’s only a top 12, and the competition is very stiff, but we’ve seen Mark Stoops and Co. pull off some big-time recruits like this over their tenure, so this wouldn’t be surprising.

Also, the Cats were his first D1 offer back in 2022, and that tends to carry a lot of weight with recruits.

Ohio State is the current frontrunner for Jackson, and he just took a visit there this past weekend.

It’d be pretty sweet to see “Bo Jackson, Kentucky Wildcat” — but I’m sure it’ll be a while until we hear any major update here as he hasn’t announced any “official” visits.
