The Kentucky football program isn’t known for landing five-star quarterbacks but the Wildcats got a crystal ball for Cutter Boley to wind up in Lexington.
The dominoes have been falling rapidly in the 2024 college football recruiting class regarding the quarterback position.
30 of the top 40 quarterbacks according to the 247 Sports composite rankings have already committed and we aren’t even to the point where recruits can take official visits.
The recruiting calendar has dramatically changed and with so many elite quarterbacks off the board in the 2024 class, some programs have shifted more of their focus to 2025.
Kentucky football is one program in a better spot for 2025 than 2024 at quarterback. In-state quarterbacks Cutter Boley is one reason why. He’s from Lexington and while he’s taken visits all over the country, the Wildcats are still at the forefront of his recruitment.
Boley has visited Kentucky football a total of seven times. Three of those visits happened this year and two of them were in March. In the 2025 class, the 6-foot-5, 205-pounder is ranked second among quarterbacks in the entire class.
Michigan and Tennessee are two other teams that have gotten visits this spring and the Wolverines seemed to be in a solid position.
However, one thing that has aided Kentucky football in this recruitment is Liam Coen. He just returned from the Rams and it’s given Kentucky more momentum in this recruitment according to Josh Edwards, a Kentucky Insider for 247 Sports.
Kentucky football is the favorite for 5-star QB Cutter Boley
Edwards, a Kentucky Insider of 247 Sports, also put in a crystal ball projection for Boley to land with the Wildcats and used a confidence level of six on a 1-10 scale.
Boley is a Kentucky football lean according to the On3 prediction machine. It gives the Wildcats an 87-percent chance to land the elite in-state QB.
Mark Stoops also just signed a new deal with the Wildcats and landing a big-time quarterback for the future can help Kentucky on an upward trend in the SEC.
One crystal ball is just one crystal ball. Plus we don’t know when Boley might make a decision. But as we have also seen, quarterbacks are deciding earlier and earlier. For Kentucky, sooner would be better because right now, the Wildcats seem to have momentum with the five-star QB.
