Great news about Chapman and Ross!!! Hopefully Ross jumps on board soon.
Also do we have a chance with Monty Madaris? He has been really playing well at these camps.

Thanks a lot Jeff. My word am I ready to hear some pads poppin'.
It smells like microwaved homeless people in here.
Jeff, you rule! Thanks for all the info, gave me something to look forward to tonight. Ross/Chapman sounds like a hell of a possible tandem. Let's hope Ross pulls the trigger!
Keep Calm & Stoops On..
Very promosing news on these kids!!!!!!
When UK gets that magical 8 win regular season......recruiting will hit a gear higher than where they are right now!
Fantastic report, Jeff. LOTS of good info and new names in that report. When I saw that Daniel Ross was planning on attending, I was particularly interested to read your impression of him. Sounds like he's better than his offer sheet indicates. Same thing goes for Chapman......If UK is going to go from 6-7 to 8-9 wins per season, it will start with loading up with significantly better players along the DL. Chapman and Ross would be a nice start.
UK obviously needs to sign a bunch of quality OL in this next class, and I have no doubt Summers will make that happen. UK has been in solid position with several good prospects, and it sounds like there could be other OL who have not been on fans' radar to date who are nonetheless good prospects.
Loved what UK has done with its camp scheduling this year. Whereas they used to have one or two one-day camp geared for evaluation and wooing of college prospects, they are having four this year (2 Friday Night Blue Llights, and 2 Sunday Skill Showcases). We all read about the Blue Lights Camp a couple of years ago when they were overwhelmed with over 500 campers - kids reportedly left frustrated because they didn't get much one on one attention or the chance to show their stuff. With fewer campers per session, that should give the staff more time to evaluate and interact with the kids they are interested in. From recruiting updates I've read recently, next week's camp could be loaded, featuring a number of elite sorts of recruits.
Jeff - you need to follow @MrSEC92 on Twitter (Chapman). Guy is a blast and he seems to be 100 percent blue. He was fired up about the camp and says he's coming back next week.
Another Prichard (ALA) Blount HS guy to note: DB Kelton Brackett
Just heard that he was another that really impressed tonight.

Absolutely Chapman is a kid that absolutely loves UK. His twitter picture says it all. I can't wait to get him on campus.
