Hulking ’24 TE/DE has enviable frame; question is…will he end up on offense or defense?
Can’t say enough about the job Coach McBroom has done turning around the fortunes of Oldham County in such a short period of time. Prospects walking the hallways like this particular one will turn around many a Kentucky high school football program.Fletcher W. Long, KPGFootball’s Senior Scout and an Editorial Board Member
Coach TaShawn McBroom took Oldham County to an 8-win campaign in only his inaugural season. Of course, Oldham County is a class 6A program so there is a substantial student body walking the hallways from which to recruit talent.
Still, got to get the talent out for football. Outside of Michael Fox’s posting a 5-4 campaign in ’20, the talent has been around the Colonel program for years. Suffice it to say, Oldham County is a good job.
One thing which makes it such a good job is talent like Zach Hohman on hand. Hohman is 6’3″ and weighs 210-solidly put together pounds. The ’24 prospect will be entering his junior year, so he is on the clock with college recruiters starting in 4…3…2…1, you get the picture.
Lindsey Wilson is circling as are the “Yalies” from the “Ancient 8 (Ivy League, FCS, Division 1).” Hohman’s performance over his sophomore year was promising considering he plays football at Kentucky’s highest competitive level.
Hohman caught 5-passes in his 8-games of action in addition to his contributions to the run-game as the OL’s 6th-member. Defensively, Hohman had a handful of tackles.
Expect his numbers to rocket this coming season. We believe he will be a season long starter and a player toward whom the Colonels will look for production.
If you are looking for someone to compare Hohman, he reminds our staff of a Hayes Preston (LCA, ’25) type. The two players have similar builds and similar athletic tools.
The only question is will Hohman be primarily a TE or will he be a DE? We don’t see too many “Iron Men (playing both ways)” players above the 3A level in Kentucky though it isn’t completely out of the question.
Won’t this be fun to monitor? Better keep your eyes peeled!
