As things stand so far..UK has never enjoyed so much positivity towards it's football program. Mark Stoops and this very good recruiting staff have flipped 4 star DE Denzel Ware, and landed a commit recently in Oh LB Dorian Hendrix. I look for Springfield,Oh WR Thaddeus Snodgrass to pop for UK very soon! If Hendrix can recruit Kief, Mike Edwards, and Lima Saftey Darius West to UK, the Cats could be looking at a stellar class.
Personally..I dont think there is a more important land for UK than Drew Barker. The Conner QB has all the tools to shine in Neal Browns offense. Strong,accurate arm with touch on his deep throws, Barker can also make plays with his speed and legs. Matt Elam is just as important. THe 6'6 342 DT from John Hardin in E-Town, Elam has Bama and the Cats neck and neck. I think UK wins.and Elam could be a game changer at DT.
Derek Kief is another big time WR that still has UK at the top even with recent offers from Ohio St and Bama. Kief at 6'5 195, has decent speed, but his hands are his best attribute. Kief catches everything you throw at him, and his size and wingspan make him an easy target for QB's.
Something that bewilders me..when Denzel Ware flipped to UK..he was a 97 rated DE..he now..without any type of chance to be scouted..he falls to 94. What gives guys? Staff..can you do something about this? .
Looks like UofL is in the picture for Elam also. Although most believe the Cats to have an edge.
Any news on Snodgrass, mods? Just curious..................
