Mark Stoops and the rest of the coaching staff are off to a strong start in recruiting for the class of 2025. Just moments ago, Lexington, Kentucky native and four-star recruit, Cutter Boley, announced that he will be attending the University of Kentucky. Boley is a six-foot, five-inch tall quarterback who weighs in at a little bit over two-hundred pounds.
Boley is in the class of '25, however, he has enough academic credit hours to make him a junior. With that being said, Cutter Boley announced that he will reclassify to the Class of 2024 and will be on Kentucky's campus in January. According to 247 Sports, Boley is ranked as the 138th best recruit in the nation, the ninth-best overall quarterback in his class, and the No. 1 overall recruit in the entire state of Kentucky.
Cutter Boley's list of offers from other Division 1 schools is an extensive one, a list that includes offers from Alabama, Florida State, Penn State, Auburn, Miami, Michigan, Tennesee, Oregon, TCU, among many others. However, he narrowed down his list to the final-five of, Tennessee, Michigan, Florida State, Penn State, and Kentucky, which Boley inevitably chose to attend.
Normally when recruits make their decisions on which school they're going to attend you will see the hats on the table representing each school, but Cutter wanted to do something a little bit different with five custom pairs of shoes from True Blue Customs, a local company that has done plenty of work for other UK athletes.
In 2021, as a freshman playing for Larue County in Hodgenville, Kentucky, Cutter Boley threw for nearly 1,400 yards and eleven touchdowns on 83-for-165 passing attempts. He also ran for 245 yards and 6 touchdowns as Boley led Larue County to a 5-7 record and a Kentucky 3A second-round playoff appearance.
In 2022, Boley transferred to LCA (Lexington Christian Academy) where he completed 254-of-400 passing attempts for over 3,900 yards, and threw for 36 touchdowns and 15 interceptions in thirteen games played.
Here are some highlights from Boley's 2022 season for LCA for your viewing pleasure.
Kentucky is definitely getting another gunslinger in Cutter Boley that has a pro-style offense, while also having an elite size that can make defense's pay when working off of play action. Under the offense led by Kentucky Offensive Coordinator, Liam Coen, I think Boley can become something really special.
