2024 quarterback Braden Graham was in Lexington for Kentucky’s first Sunday Showcase Camp this past weekend, and apparently, the coaching staff liked what they saw. Last night, the 6’1″, 185 lbs. rising sophomore from David Lipscomb in Nashville tweeted that he received a scholarship offer from offensive coordinator Liam Coen. Graham’s coach at Lipscomb? Former Super Bowl champion quarterback Trent Dilfer.
After a great conversation with Coach @LiamCoen I am blessed to receive an OFFER from the University of Kentucky ???

In a conversation with Justin Rowland, Graham said this is his first offer, and he was impressed by Coen and his NFL background.
“I really like coach,” Graham told Rowland. “He’s a great guy to learn from. He was with the Rams for I think three years. He’s learned a lot from those NFL guys and his brain is just so smart with terminology. It’s really good to hear the things he says.”
Interesting note: Graham is teammates with cornerback Kaleb Beasley, who also holds an offer from Kentucky and was also at Sunday’s camp. Something to keep an eye on as the Cats continue to build that Nashville recruiting pipeline.
