Our list would look very similar. Some may have been in different slots, like Jager Burton (who we would have had higher), today’s feature. However, the 30 he listed would have been on our list too.

Nothing is more excruciating than someone telling you, “I told you so.” That being said, “we told you so.” We wrote an article about Cam Jordan in September of 2017 which appears to have rung eerily true.

Anyway, you be the judge and enjoy the article about one of KPGFootball’s favorite Kentucky HS players. HB.
