The Kentucky Wildcats football team will be welcoming on three preferred walk-on players from the state of Kentucky.
Christian County quarterback Kolbe Langhi, Paintsville Lineman Tyler Couch, and North Oldham wide receiver Tyler Beisner will be part of the Wildcats squad next season.
Langhi racked up more than 100 total touchdowns over his career as Christian County’s starting quarterback and the team finished with an 11-1 record this past season.
Langhi reportedly visited both Vanderbilt and Louisville before deciding to become a Wildcat, according to Kentucky Sports Radio’s Nick Roush.
Couch is the son of former Wildcat Joey Couch, who played under Jerry Claiborne and Bill Curry at Kentucky.
He totaled 41 tackles for the Paintsville Tigers this past season in which the team finished 11-2.
Beisner is a wide receiver from North Oldham High School. He is the son of TJ Beisner, a host of KSTV and a member of the Kentucky sports media.
