Kai Lemons is an athletic, if oft overlooked, wide receiver prospect from Kansas. The Derby star is 6-foot, 180+ pounds but plays much taller and stronger than his vitals would indicate.
He also has tremendous concentration, as this highlight during Derby’s 46-16 victory against Salina Central showcases.
That’s Lemons getting up and then flipping head over heels to hold on to a big-time catch in the end zone. The reception was named the play of the week by Wichita ABC affiliate KAKE, for good reason, and was one of a pair of touchdowns Lemons had on the night.
As MaxPreps noted, Lemons has yet to receive a major Division I scholarship offer, though Arkansas, Kansas, Kansas State and Michigan State have all expressed interest in his future, as have others. Something tells us he may not be shut out of options much longer.
