Another Ohio Running Back Picks Kentucky Wildcats


I guess we can call this a "double Yahtzee" as Kentucky got their second commitment yesterday and #10 for the year when Asim "A.J." Rose, a 6‘2" 185 pound running back from Garfield Heights, Ohio, picked the Wildcats. Rose is unranked by Rivals but is a 3-star over at 247 Sports, who generally does a better job than Rivals at ranking football players. He is considered the 22nd best running back in Ohio.

Earlier yesterday, Kentucky landed Benny Snell, a prime target for the Wildcats out of Westerfield, Ohio.

Rose has also played quarterback for his school, but considers himself a running back first and always. Rose had offers only from mid-majors Bowling Green and Toledo up until now. He styles himself a "downhill runner."
