Uk will be looking t stock its depth at OL in 2014..and its a great year to do just that...
1: Nick Richardson OT 6'6 290 Westerville,Ohio big, long armed OT is a 4 star talent,..and UK is already on him hard.
2: Corey Martinez OT 6'4 315 Tampa 4 star Ol has been of UK's radar since Joker..would be a instant starter here..imo.
3: Kyle Trout OT 6'6 275 4 star OT from Lancaster,Ohio is on everyones short list at Ol next year.
4: Jake Sanders OG 6'6 325 Carrollton,Ga Uk been on him a while now..big, strong..and has a greta offer sheet.
5: Matthew Pyke C 6'3 297 Clinton,Tenn one of the best OC prospects in the 14 class.
6: Isiah Wynn OG 6'3 275 Hollywood, Fla athletic and quick..Wynn is a 4* kid with a lot of major looks.
7:Mason Cole OG 6'4 296 Tarpon Springs,Fla 4*OG is a longshot,,but is just the elite OG UK needs to help our OL get SEC quality.
8: Kc McDermott OT 6'6 280 the 5* fla Ot is a big time longshot..but i bet Stoops gets his nose in there.
9: Denzel Ward 6'8 300 the mammoth OT from IMG Academy in Bradenton,Fla would be a nice under the radar pickup. IF Uk gets in beofre he blows up to a 4 ot 5 *..we could have a shot.
10:NIck JOnes OG 6'6 330 Birminham,Ala another massive sleeper that will be a NFL OG someday..Uk needs to get in now.
11:Orlando Brown OT 6'9 370 massive bulldozer from Suwanee Peach Tree Ridge would be a huge land both literally and figuratively.
12: Alex Bars OT 6'5 280 Tenn..Uk missed on his brothers..i dont see us getting Bars but hes on our list.
13: Reilly Gibbons OT 6'5 275 4* OT/OG is a big timetalent that Uk could sneak in on if the major players look at the 5 star kids 1st.
14: Cortez Roberts OT 6'8 320 Big NO OT is a elite bookend tackle, that said..its goona be hard to steal him from LSU or Bama.
Doubt they are interested in Kyle Trout - his dad was born in Kentucky, is a huge wildcats basketball fan. Plus one of his coaches played Running back at UK - Rod Stewart and Kyle is friends with his son. He sent multiple emails to a few staff members and never got a reply. Nobody has visited the school and he hasn't gotten any mail. At this point I would expect he will commit before they even think about showing interest.
I think Stoops and staff have already put out feelers..this just makes me wonder wtf Jokers staff was doing..right? I hope if Trout was a UK fan like you say..and I believe you..it just infuriates me man..this is a 4 star OT..not to recruit him is ridiculous!! Lets hope Stoops and the new UK football will allow Kyle to forgive us for the previous staffs ineptitude!
If I read it right, Timmons said that UK was NOT an option before Stoops came into the picture so why would you believe if Stoops is interested, that he couldn't get right back into the picture with Trout with a visit. I don't think you are going to find that any kids recruited by the past staff is going to hold anything ill will against this new staff.
Just going off what the guy above said..that trout was uk fan and didnt like the staff.. I have 100% confidence in Stoops. BUt..you never know law..Barker said he was so miffed at the old staff he wasnt even sure he would allow the new staff in...boy..am I glad he changed his mind!!
It wouldn't take much digging to find out my relationship to Kyle. But it will likely be too late by the time they decide to get in touch. We sent emails to the new staff with no reply as well. Actually the old staff was going to have us down for a visit last year then stopped answering. It was strange.
It may be Kyle doesn't fit what they are looking for, or it might be that they are still hard after 2013 kids and not putting out much for 14 yet but it looks to me like they are going after some 14 kids.

A lot of high profile kids are heading that way, it seems like they are buying into the program. I think UK will be successful
I really don't think they are interested right now, and I think he will commit sooner rather than later anyway
THanks guys...ups for all of yas when mine refresh!! Feel free to add any Ol I missed..or you have inside scoops on!!
I thought I was adding inside scoops lol
Thanks for all the +1's. You guys and Gals in BBN land are the best! I just love UK football..recruiting..all of it. You guys are my 2nd family..and my only sports family. I am so excited for this year..Stoops has improved our talent and our confidence.
When you play with fire and emotion..and your defense comes to hunt..and hits like they want to destroy someone..anythings possible..and I really think Max Smith will shine in Neal Browns offense..and has weapons like Ryan Timmons, Jeff Badet, DeMarcus Sweat,AJ Legree, Daryl Collins, Alex Montgomery..and lets not forget Javess Blue...or Demarco Robinson.
The competition will be much fiercer..the talent higher. Badet and Timmons has more experience in the offense than the holdovers..but Sweat and Legree are great athletes. Legree made some big boy grabs last year and Sweat flashed a ton of raw physical talent at times. He wont seem lost in Browns offense. Jo Jo Kemp should fit right in from the word go..kid hits the hole like a hammer and has the jets to take it home if he gets behind the 2nd level.
ZaDarius Smith and Alvonte Bell bring a ton of size and quickness to DE. Smith is 6'6 255 and was arguably the best DE in all of JUCO. Bell is 6'6 250 and posseses a ton of speed and agility for a kid of his size..he lined up at WR and TE on offense. Add farrenton Huguenin who could blossom under Eliot and Brumbaugh, and rumors are Alvin Dupree will move to WDE..and he is similar in size and speed to Stoops past DE's at 6'5 250. If Jason Hatcher comes..De suddenly becomes a strong link in our defense.
Cobble and Rumph are veterans. Both have flashed potential and flash inconsistency at times. My money is on Brumbaugh and the fire brought by the new staff will ignite in these two senior leaders. They wont get the sacks or the glory..but they will eat up blockers like candy and make life much easier on our more talented edge rushers. Our secondary will be in decent shape with the additions of Nate Willis, Marcus McClinton, Jaleel Hytchye, and Blake McClain. The Blaylock twins should factor in at both saftey spots and JD Harmons, Cody Quinn and Fred Tiller all looked like players at cb. Linebackers will look like Acery Williamson Kadeem Thomas holding the middle, with Josh Forrest, Khalid Henderson, Miles Simpson at Olb. Not too bad. 6-6 is doable.
Didn't take the time to read the whole thread or research who you are, but you're definitely the Trout kids dad. Very obvious.
you guys switched to insider only posting... bummer
