If you want to win at football in Kentucky, and you are the flagship university, you have a mandate as a football coach. Sign the best that Kentucky has to offer. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Ryan Timmons.
Last year, while playing at Franklin County, Timmons was a hoss. He rushed for 1306 yards and 25 TD's and caught 33 passes for another 1004 yards and 16 more TD's.
Oh, and by the way, he returned 3 kickoffs for a TD.
Timmons is fast, durable, and has something you cannot teach to a player. He has a nose for the endzone. Scorers are the same in both football and basketball. They want the ball when the game is on the line. That's Ryan Timmons. At his announcement yesterday, he was emotional and you could tell that this is a sincere type of kid who will do whatever it takes to make his mark, and he has grades to go with it. He was a 4.0 student his senior year at Franklin County.
This is another recruit that you can build a program around folks. Timmons is 5'10" 189lbs, and should be able to make an immediate impact in Neil Brown's offensive scheme.
Welcome aboard Ryan, you couldn't have come at a better time.
