With national signing day on Wednesday, Kentucky does not have a better football ambassador than early enrollee Kash Daniel of Paintsville.
So why was Kentucky the right fit for the four-star linebacker?
“It’s home. Home is everything to me, and it felt like a family atmosphere right when I walked in the door. And I didn’t feel that at other places,” Daniel said. “When I walked through these doors, I had every coach come up to me and ask how I was doing, if my family was OK, how’s everything back at school.
“At other places, you had to walk up and introduce yourself and half the time they didn’t even know they’d offered you. Kentucky is a very special place to me. It’s my home state. To come here and help Coach Stoops get to where things should be — it’s a hometown pride thing for me. And I’m looking forward to the challenge.”
