QB commit Beau Allen likes the “kind of people” that Eddie Gran, Darin Hinshaw are

Over the last three years Lexington Catholic quarterback Beau Allen spent a lot of time with Kentucky offensive coordinator Eddie Gran and quarterbacks coach Darin Hinshaw. Obviously, he liked what he saw and heard because he recently verbally committed to Kentucky over a bundle of offers he had across the country.

“I just like the kind of people they are inside and outside of football,” said Allen. “It was just great to get to know them and be around them both.”

He also knows new offensive analyst Mark Perry well because he was his coach at Lexington Catholic before going to Troy and then West Virginia briefly before going Mark Stoops’ staff at UK. Allen admits he was a bit surprised when Perry found his way back to Lexington after the 2018 season ended and after Neal Brown got hired at West Virginia.

“I am excited for coach Perry and his family to be back in Lexington,” Allen said. “He is not allowed to technically go out and recruit but I pretty sure he can do most everything else around the (football) facility. I think it will be a big help to me to have him around.”

Allen plans to be at Kentucky “many times” for camps and other things this summer to start “working” on his collegiate career. He plans to be an early enrollee and start school at Kentucky in January.


  1. I guess he’s not too concerned that he made the wrong decision Catmandoo. Imagine that.

  2. Yeah. He should have been focused on their coaching attributes instead of their personal ones. He should have also paid more attention to who was coming back, who left and why, and who else was being recruited. Pup, put down your pom poms for just a minute and tell us what you honestly thing Beau’s PT will be next year and the year after? Will he be happy waiting until his junior year to be a starter? If he had been your son, would you have advised him to come here? Tim Couch paid a price for coming here. He would have been a better pro player if he had gone to Tennessee, Florida State, or Florida. KY is still a second tier program with second tier coaching. His talent will simply go to waste here.

    1. Catmandoo, honestly you talk like a person who down deep is not a real fan of the Big Blue. No sport or coach UK has can measure up to your standards. Man just listen to yourself, the young man is not even on campus yet and you are talking about playing time for him. As for his choice if he were my son? I would have been thrilled. Why? because it was his choice, and secondly because I’m a big blue fan. You complain about everything. Do you ever just shut up with all your stupidity? Screw UT, FSU, and Florida Go root for them and just leave us alone. I’m just glad he’s a Wildcat. That said, he has to earn it just like the other QB’s who will wear the Blue and White. Competition at that position is a good thing. As for Tim Couch, he was an NFL QB on a team that stunk the whole time he was in the league. and Hal Mummies’ offense was tailor made for him, are you kidding? He is a UK great, and unlike you supports his Alma Mater. Go peddle you nonsense on another blog representing another University that you think is top drawer. This is a UK support site.
