Madison’s Tyrell Ajian is heading south this next year to play football for the Kentucky Wildcats.

Ajian was a combination athlete at Madison, playing both defensive back and wide receiver who was ranked as a four star prospect by 247Sports, Rivals, and ESPN. Rivals ranks him as the number 10 overall prospect in Ohio, and ESPN has him pegged as the number 8 safety in the country.

This past fall, he was first team OCC All-Conference and honorable mention second team All-Northwest Ohio. Ajian had three interceptions and 54 tackles as a junior, along with 783 receiving yards, 551 rushing yards, and 19 touchdowns.

Having been recruited by Michigan State, Tennessee, West Virginia, and Notre Dame in addition to Kentucky, Wildcats Coach Mark Stoops has said, “Tyrell is a versatile athlete who can play every position in the secondary and has shown great leadership. His awareness and instincts have been evidence on the football field and basketball court.”
