Jack Jackson joins Kentucky Football

The Kentucky Wildcats have added another local star as a football walk-on.

Henry Clay defender James 'Jack' Jackson announced Thursday night that he will walk on to UK this year.

Jackson, who stands at 5-11 and 165 pounds, played defensive back and wide receiver at Henry Clay. DB is what he'll now play at UK. He reportedly runs the 40-yard dash in 4.5 seconds.

This is the second walk-on UK has added this week from Henry Clay after linebacker/safety Casius Smith also announced he'd join the Wildcats. UK also has incoming three-star cornerback DaVonte Robinson coming in from Henry Clay, so that's three Blue Devils staying close to home for college.

Here are some highlights of Jackson in action:
