High school football season kicked off across the country Friday night and one UK commitment is off to a hot start.
Destin Wade, a 2022 Kentucky commit, totaled 273 yards and four touchdowns on six carries, including a fifth touchdown through the air.
The four-star athlete plays quarterback for his high school team. He is rated the No. 348 player nationally by the 247Sports Composite. Keaten Wade (linebacker), Destin’s twin brother, is also a Kentucky football commit, rated the No. 192 player nationally by the 247Sports Composite.
The future Wildcat had scoring runs of 3, 75, 80, and 98 yards in a 50-13 win vs. Henry County Friday night.
