This kid literally has it all. It is very hard to evaluate 7th-graders but quicks and speed are things which can be somewhat evaluated, even in younger prospects. This player is elusive, catches the ball well, get’s down hill in a hurry, and has a nice long frame on him which belies tremendous growth potential. Enjoy the feature. HB.

Cade Sullivan, ‘The Berea Blast,’ may be the best athlete in the ’23 class… @1776Bank @minguabeefjerky @kyhighs @HLpreps @MaxPreps @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball @mshsfb_eagles @Mshs_Eagles_

We have followed Cade Sullivan since his being one of Kentucky’s finest coming out of its middle school ranks. He has been a superstar in HS too, just on a team which has struggled which impacts many players who find themselves so situated. This kid is drawing D-1 looks and has D-1 speed. We would call him an athlete. Read this article and let us know what you would call him. HB.

The clock is striking ’12’ for Corbin’s Ethan Gregory (’24). @MDGregory32 @CorbinFootball @sansann03 @minguabeefjerky @KyHighs @HLPreps @KyHighFootball @1776Bank @MaxPreps @ErikRichardsUSA @Eregory3222 @PrepSpin

This prospect has been likened to Wandale Robinson. We watch him and believe him to be more of a Jay Becherer clone. Regardless, he is likened to two exceptional former high school players both of whom flourished in college. We believe before it is said and done, this kid here will do likewise. He is certainly putting in the work. Enjoy the feature. HB.

If I were to draw a picture of what a middle school, rising high school offensive tackle should appear, I would probably be drawing a picture of Dylan peck. He his long, lean, has plus length, good feet, and is athletic for a big man at his stage of development. Enjoy this look at one of the premier OL or DL (for that matter) in the class of ’26 commonwealth-wide. Enjoy the feature. HB.

@Pwilliams2025 from @thorobredfb proved he belongs in the discussion for ’25’s best DE in all of the commonwealth. @1776Bank @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @MaxPreps @KyHighFootball

We saw this featured athlete perform for Team Kentucky Future Stars in its annual classic with the Tennessee counterpart. We believed him to be a top-two DE in that class at that time and he did nothing but confirm that prediction for us over the course of his freshman season. What he is poised to do as a sophomore could prove incredible. Enjoy the feature. HB.

@zaccarter54 from Meece Middle School (c/o ’26); how can he possibly be in middle school? @mingubeefjerky @PrepSpin @KENTUCKYFUTURESTARS @1776Bank @KyHighFootball @18_hatcher

It is very important to continually update your database with the upcoming stars of the Kentucky high school football world. This guy is one you will be hearing a lot about going forward. You might do well to go ahead and write down his name. It is Zac Carter and he is a Kentucky Future Star. Enjoy this feature. HB.

@CamThomas2026_3 (Cam Thomas), c/o ’26, from @FootMiddle getting ready for the Future Stars and much more. @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball @1776Bank…Happy Memorial Day!

Don’t hold us to this, but we believe this is the first c/o ’26 player we have featured and Happy Memorial Day by the way. Cam Thomas and his Team Kentucky Future Star teammates are going to play their Tennessee counterparts in June in Nashville, Tennessee. We hope you will get to Nashville and watch what is incredibly sound and well played football by the best players either state has available. It is football at that grade level like you have never seen it played. You will be amazed. Enjoy the feature. HB.

@clark_kissick from @WoodfordFBall looks to be another “No-Douter” to us. He also looks to have a very bright future… @minguabeefjerky @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball @1776Bank

It is not every day you have rising ninth-grade “Bigs” who appear destined to challenge for early playing time. Then again, not every program has them coming out of MS 6-3, 290, highly decorated at the level of play the player is leaving, and already being followed on Twitter by college programs intent on recruiting the young player in the “not too distant” future. Enjoy this look at an OL who figures to be among the best along the front in his high school graduating class (’25). HB.

Kory Combs, ’25, is a no-doubter. @minguabeefjerky @1776Bank @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball

As we say farewell to another group of ballers we have covered since they played in middle school, we get to meet and update our database with an entire new class of up-and-coming stars who will play their freshman seasons this coming Fall. Many of these guys will start on Friday Night sometime during their initial campaigns. Some of these guys will start night one, snap one and we aren’t talking about on specials either. Today, we are highlighting a kid we call around the magazine a “No-doubter.” Why? Well, you may have to just read this article and find out. HB.
