UK commit having good year

Josh Forrest was one of Kentucky's earlier commitments for the 2011 class. Forrest is a very good athlete who can be projected to several spots at the next level, but he is making a great case at receiver.

Josh Forrest was one of Kentucky's earlier commitments for the 2011 class. Forrest is a very good athlete who can be projected to several spots at the next level, but he is making a great case at receiver.

Standing 6-foot-4, 200- pounds, Josh Forrest is another big bodied receiver in a line of tall, big receivers for Kentucky. It seems to be a trend for coach Joker Phillips and Rich Brooks before him.

So far this season, Forrest has lead Tilghman to a 7-2 record with a single game remaining on the schedule and he's been dominant the entire year.

"It's going good, but it could be better," said Forrest. "I have 14 total touchdowns and about 600 yards receiving. I have about six interceptions," he continued.

Indeed Forrest has been productive. In nine games, Forrest has 31 receptions for 617 yards and 11 touchdowns. Defensively Forrest has returned two interceptions and a fumble for a touchdown. He also has 57 total tackles.

Forrest and Tilgman will begin their defense of their state championship in the playoffs next month and Forrest will be a big factor in defending that title.

Josh also plans to visit his future team soon.

"I plan on going to Kentucky's game this weekend," said Forrest. "I haven't taken my (official) visit yet. I haven't had a chance to see them play, but I will be there this weekend," Forrest said.

And what kind of an impact can Forrest make for the Cats?

"I hope I can come in and be an impact player somewhere along the field and help win some more games," said Forrest.
