’24 S/WR a specimen with speed to burn

Kahmani Bush is a burner. We would easily put his 40-time in the low to mid 4.5s. There is plenty to anatomically support that as a running speed. For starters, we have seen him run a timed 40. Secondly, his vertical and broad jump both support his being that fast. Right now he hasn’t been all that active on the recruiting front. One of the colleges around Kentucky could really pick up a steal offering this dude. Guess what? The admissions office will thank you!

Cadiz, KY: In case any of you are new to this forum, we have been focusing on versatile athletic talent this offseason. Just because someone plays a position in high school doesn’t mean his college coaches will see him the same way.

There are plenty of examples of this. Jason Witten came to Tennessee a defensive end and fought Phillip Fulmer, tooth and nail, about being moved to offense. Witten lost that fight and became a Hall of Fame certain and, perhaps, the greatest TE to ever play the game.

We aren’t promising Kahmani Bush will turn into Jason Witten in college. There is literally no way of knowing that.

However, we are promising, should some college not seize the day (carpe diem), it will be missing out on one Hell of an opportunity. You can write that down somewhere.

Bush is a superior athlete who is sort of a late bloomer. He is only going to improve with additional time committed to a strength and conditioning regimen the likes of which colleges regularly employ.

Kahmani [Bush] is just an excellent athlete…We believe his best football is still to come

Chris Ezell, HFC, Trigg County High

Bush runs the 40-yard dash in a consistent 4.55-seconds. He bench presses around 200-pounds and power cleans 205 while weighing only 155.

Bush is 5’11,” has long arms and legs, with a boat load of vertical explosion, giving him superior length for that frame. He only caught a handful of passes in ’23 but averaged over 30-yards per reception and scored a TD on half of his receptions.

Defensively is where Bush primarily shone over his senior year. He started at safety, registered 29-tackles, 4-TFLs, and 4-QB sacks. He was among the leaders on the defensive unit in PBUs.

Bush also has been a stalwart on the varsity basketball team. Trigg County, Bush in tow, just finished runner-up in its district to Lyon County and is headed to the Regional Tournament to attempt a run to Lexington.

We were able to speak with Chris Ezell, the head football coach at Trigg County. Ezell told us, “Kahmani [Bush] is just an excellent athlete. You don’t see too many come through a high school program with the ceiling this particular athlete possesses. We believe his best football is still to come.”

There is more good news concerning this prospect. Gaining admission for him will be a snap. Bush sports a 3.6 GPA which makes him a three-phase, versatile, student-athlete who has excelled in basketball, football, and in the classroom.

So if you are a college football recruiter, go ahead and give this young man a call and add some value to the ’24 recruiting class. You can thank us when you see us on down the road.

By the way; you’re welcome.
