Quarterback Morgan Newton To Play At UK

The UK football team gets a big boost as a high-profile recruit announces he'll be a wildcat.

5 Star quarterback Morgan Newton made the announcement on Thursday morning.

Newton, who is from Carmel, Indiana was one of the most sought after players in the country.

He had narrowed his choices down to Indiana, Purdue, Florida, Clemson and Kentucky.

During his junior season, he threw for 1,900 yards and 25 touchdowns, while rushing for another 750 yards and 11 scores.

We'll have a full report coming up on 27 NEWSFIRST at Noon.

    Hmmm... the scout.com that I looked at has the kid as a 5 star QB. Which scout.com did you look at Mr. Anonymous?

    If you look on scout.com Newton is rated as a 3 star QB. The other QB Coach Brooks recruited is rated higher than Newton. Where did WKYT get where he is a 5 star recruit?
