With Kentucky playing at Mississippi State Tuesday night, that means Tom Leach is on the road with the Cats and once again I get the opportunity to host the Leach Report Tuesday from 9-10 a.m.

As always, I welcome the opportunity and always appreciate the feedback I get from so many UK fans after doing a show.

Warren Harding High School coach Steve Arnold will be one of the guests Tuesday. His star player, Lynn Bowden, verbally committed to Kentucky Saturday. He’s a four-star player who could be the highest ranked signee Mark Stoops has had at Kentucky.

Arnold played quarterback and put up staggering numbers, but will likely be a slot receiver at Kentucky — and a big play threat the Cats could use with the departures of Boom Williams and Jeff Badet.

Arnold has coached other star players and will have some great insights on Bowden and his future at Kentucky.

Also on the show will be Rusty Hubbard. His daughter, Morgan, will be performing with the Firecrackers Saturday in Rupp Arena. This will be her fourth trip to Rupp with the jump rope performance team from Ohio that is always a big hit with Kentucky fans.

Rusty Hubbard will be able to preview the show and share just how much the girls in grades four to eight enjoy coming to Kentucky.

Logan Lowery of the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal will start the show by talking about Mississippi State and its 3-1 start to league play.

MAGGARD ON WPBK-FM

Thursday from 7:15-8 a.m. I will be on WPBK (102.9 FM) with Tim Estes to talk UK sports. At 7:30, former UK quarterback and current Kentucky Sports Radio football analyst Freddie Maggard will join us to talk about UK’s recruiting class.

Seven players have already started classes at Kentucky and Maggard will offer his expectations for each. National signing day for others is just over two weeks away and Maggard will be able to share insights on those players.

In recent years, he’s predicted that Bunchy Stallings and Cole Mosier would be superb linemen — and they have been. He raved about running back Benny Snell last year.
