’24 DB is a 2-time All-State selection and a 3-star prospect
JT Haskins, Jr. is a 3-star prospect on both Rivals.com and 247Sports.com. He is 6’1,” weighs 170-pounds, and is holding 10 Division-I offers, most prominent of which are offers to Akron, EKU, Louisville, Marshall, and Miami of Ohio. The other night, in a big win over Bowling Green Senior High in Lexington, Kentucky, the number “three” kept surfacing in regards to this particular player. Is it coincidence or numerology?HB Lyon, Scouting Director, KPGFootball
Numerology was known prior to the 20th century as “arithmancy.” People believed (some still do) the future could actually be predicted by using numbers. At the Hogwart’s School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, for the JK Rowling fans among young, Arithmancy was (presumptively still is) a third-year subject.
For the rest of this article, we would like you to pay close attention to how many times the number three (3) comes up in featuring JT Haskins, Jr., one of Kentucky’s very best DB’s who plays at Lexington’s Bryan Station High.
First of all, let’s get the easy one out of the way…he wears the number “3” on his jersey. Haskins is also a 3-star prospect on both national major recruiting, online sites, Rivals.com and 247Sports.com.
Saturday night, in the Defenders’ game with Bowling Green Senior, Haskins had three receptions, three tackles, and an INT he returned forty-THREE yards. Haskins scored six-points on the evening, which is divisible by three twice or the sum of three plus three.
The Defenders scored a huge win on the young season in its third game in Lexington, Kentucky at the LCA Bowl sponsored by e.Campus.com. The final score was Bryan Staton 38, Bowling Green 35. That is an awful lot of three’s.
So what does it all mean for a guy coming off a junior season where he registered 46-tackles, 4-INT’s, 756 receiving yards and 8-receiving TD’s. What can we glean from the mystic properties of the number three for a player who has worn the number in tallying 1,011-all purpose yards during the ’22 season and, entering his senior year, has worn it in tallying 5,398-all purpose yards over a three year period of time?
Perhaps it means there is a mystic relationship between the number three and JT Haskins’ special prowess as a Kentucky high school football player. Perhaps the number three holds a divine and mystical relationship between one of the commonwealth’s more coveted ’24 recruits and a jersey, a number of catches, a number of tackles, etc.
Maybe, and we are just spiff-balling here, JT Haskins would be just as good wearing some other number. I don’t know, go up and ask him to swap you for number 7 and see what he says…
