St. Ignatius (Cleveland, Ohio) offensive tackle Darian Kinnard received his Army Bowl jersey Thursday at his school as part of the U.S. Army All-American Bowl Selection Tour presented by American Family Insurance.
Kinnard, a 6-7, 336-pound four-star, is the 16th-ranked offensive tackle in the country, according to 247Sports Composite Rankings.
Committing to Kentucky in early April, he gives Coach Stoops a big presence up front. Kentucky currently holds the 22nd-ranked recruiting class.
He’ll be among the nation’s top players competing at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl, which kicks off Saturday, Jan. 6 in San Antonio at 1 p.m. ET on NBC.
