Rising freshman conerback, Jairus Brents, made national news when he was offered by the University of Kentucky, after just completing the seventh grade, at one of their prospect camps.
Now, over a year removed from the camp he boasts a new offer from the University of Louisville -- which also came as a result of a camp performance.
At Kentucky, the 5-foot-9, 160-pound prospect claims to have ran a 4.4 forty-yard dash and attributes his first offer to the 120-foot sprint. His 37-inch vertical is also telling of his pure athleticism.
The young defensive back possesses long appendages accompanied by hands that share the same characteristics -- both of which play a role in his ability to cover up wide outs.
His ball skills still need a bit of polishing, but they are far superior to a prospect his age. Another thing he will need to do is build muscle, as he still yet to begin a weight lifting program.
There's still a bit of uncertainty on how the duPont Manual coaching staff will use Brents in his first high school season on the gridiron. It was made clear they will not force the issue, either.
Brents is surely the face of the 2018 class right now in the Bluegrass. With two offers and nearly every big-time school in the region cognizant of his talents, he is way ahead of the curve in means of recruiting.
