The Kentucky Wildcats have nabbed their second Class of 2023 recruit, this one by way of Kaden Moorman from Franklin County High School in Frankfort (KY).
Moorman joins Ty Bryant as the second recruit to pick the Wildcat for 2023, both being from Kentucky as Bryant plays a Frederick Douglass. Moorman chose Kentucky over Wisconsin and Toledo.
Moorman is a 3-star running back ranked as the No. 4 player in the state of Kentucky, according to Rivals. On 247, Moorman is seen as the No. 337 player in the nation while still holding the No. 4 spot on the state.
I am blessed to announce that I will commit to the university of Kentucky! GO BBN! pic.twitter.com/tN4RUFhSgp— kaden j moorman (@kadenmoorman4) October 8, 2021
Through Franklin County’s first seven games this season, the 5-foot-10, 205-pound Moorman has run for 777 yards and 14 touchdowns to go with two kickoff returns for scores. He told KSR over the summer that his fastest 40-time was 4.63 seconds during his camp trip with Wisconsin.
Moorman was in attendance for Kentucky’s win over Florida, then announced he would be making his decision shortly after the game had ended. Moorman took an official visit to Wisconsin on June 7.
While Moorman only heralded three official offers, he is a diamond in the rough for Mark Stoops and the Big Dawg to land. Moorman is a shifty back, who can play multiple positions, and has the ability to break off a touchdown at any given moment. Blink, and you may miss him.
Vince Marrow is the lead recruiter and was the coach who offered Moorman a scholarship when he visited Kentucky over the summer.
As Moorman is a Class of 2023 recruit, there is still plenty of room for him to grow, and eventually earn a fourth star, as he is that talented.
