According to Rivals.com (H/T Justin Rowland), and as many have expected for a while, Braylon Heard will transfer to UK.
Heard is a running back who has been playing at Nebraska, but has now decided to head to UK. Out of High School, Heard was a highly rated 4* prospect out of Cardinal Mooney High School, alma mater of Coach Stoops as well as UK signee Marcus McWilson.
Heard averaged 6 yards per rush at Nebraska, and had four touchdowns. He was used as an all-purpose back at Nebraska, catching balls out of the backfield as well as rushing. He totaled 477 yards on the ground over his career, while playing behind Rex Burkhead.
This is a huge pick up for Coach Mark Stoops and staff. Heard is custom built for the offense that Neal Brown likes to run, and being able to get him may be more important than getting some of the running back recruits that UK is after in the 2014 class.
Welcome aboard, Braylon.
