Somerset coach Robbie Lucas says not to expect any quick college decision from junior quarterback Kaiya Sheron after his recent scholarship offer from Kentucky.
“He needs to sit back and wait and see what all happens,” Lucas said. “I expect a lot more offers to come. I want him to have options and choices but also realize these are just promises right now. None of this changes my expectations of him one bit.”
Somerset returns a veteran team that plans to win the Class AA state championship. Lucas doesn’t want the pressure of a Kentucky offer to bother his quarterback, who threw for 1,846 yards and 13 scores and ran for another 505 yards and seven touchdowns last year when the Briar Jumpers reached the state semifinals before losing.
“I do worry that when kids get UK offers that people will see them play two or three minutes and decide they are not good enough to play at UK,” the Somerset coach said. “But there is no pressure on him. We are happy he got the offer but he’s just a small part of our team and he gets that.”
