Kentucky had several prospects on campus for various camps over the last few weeks. This weekend Apollo High (Ky.) offensive tackle Hunter Bivin impressed the staff enough to receive an offer.

Standing at 6-foot-7, 287-pounds, it’s easy to be a standout among your peers, at least physically. But Hunter Bivin showed a high level of skill to the Kentucky coaches. So much that he received a scholarship offer.

“I just received my first offer, from Kentucky, this past weekend,” said Bivin.

Combined with Bivin’s performance at the camp and his performance during his sophomore season, Bivin earned that offer.

“I believe I had a solid season. I wish I could have helped my team win more games. I will never be satisfied, but overall I feel I had a good year,” he said.

Bivin knows how he’ll get better as a player and he can see where his strengths lie.

“This off-season I’m trying to improve my strength. I feel if I get stronger I will have an advantage over my opposition. Also (I want to improve) my communication skills with my teammate,” he said. “I would like to think of myself as a leader. I’m hard-nosed and hustling at all times,” he continued.

The Wildcat staff saw all of his qualities while on campus this weekend and Bivin felt good about the camp at Kentucky.

“I feel like I did good at UK’s camp. I need to improve in some areas, but I learned a lot and was confident with my performance and was pleased with the competition I was up again,” he said. “I really like Kentucky. I love the coaching staff and feel very comfortable there. But I’m still keeping my options open. But I really like Kentucky.”

Bivin does have many options, he’s currently receiving interest from Notre Dame, Alabama, Tennessee, Ole Miss, North Carolina, South Carolina, LSU, Georgia, Illinois and Indiana.
