Cardinal Gibbons (Fla.) High School tight end Nikolas Ognenovic didn’t verbally commit to Kentucky because quarterback Nik Scalzo, his high school teammate, was already a 2019 verbal commitment to the Cats.
However, he’s happy Scalzo will also be at Kentucky with him.
“I think he will do great in the SEC. He will have (quarterbacks) coach (Darin) Hinshaw and (offensive coordinator Eddie) Gran to prepare him every day,” Ognenovic said. “Right now he is really good. I feel bad for teams that might overlook him or underestimate him because he’s really a good quarterback.
“He is a playmaker and can do anything you ask him. He will get the ball down the field and in the end zone. I have known him since ninth grade. He is very relaxed but has a lot of energy. He can be mellow but on the field he’s going to get the job done.”
