Per TOS. Offers from Clemson, FSU, UL, WVU, Miss St, Notre Dame, Ole miss, Vandy, Indiana! #23 DE on rivals! Finally another one
WOW!!!! Now that is a pick up. No One, and I mean No ONE can complain about this pickup.

Great great pickup by the staff.

Whoa. Thats a beginning to a mean DLINE with Bell and Hyde.
He didn't have any offers from top half SEC teams. We are slipping. Joker sucks. Fire Joker. fire Mitch.
Nice Pick up! First time I ever remember an early D-line pickup. Can't wait for Rock to get ahold of him and start throwing some more meat on his bones!
WOW, I hope we hold on to this kid. We'll be fighting a lot of SEC Schools late in the season to keep his commitment. Kudos to Joker and Staff, this is a nice looking player.
Bet he's pegged at the hybrid spot. Looks like a Dupree clone to me. These are the kind of kids UK has to get to play this defense.
At 6-6, he should be able to keep the hands of long armed SEC OTs off his body. How tall is Dupree? I'm not sure if I would call him a clone.
If you look at some other pictures of him (espeically his arms), you can tell he is going to be a lot bigger. I think he is going to be a natural DE.
Either way, I am just glad we have him. Our DL is really coming together.
I agree with Prince. Rumph, Cobble, Douglas, Davis, Hugenin, Dupree, Chapman, Graffree, Newton, Hyde and Bell will all be on campus together 2013, barring some unforeseen circumstance. That is the most impressive quality DLine depth I can ever remember having at UK. And I would venture a guess and say that the staff is still after a 3 or 5 technique for this class.
I don't think there is any dispute that UK will be fielding a quality DLine for the next few years.
Hell yeah!! Dude looks beastly.
Keep Calm & Stoops On..
Don't bet on it... fake fans are always lurking.
Great pick-up at a very important position.
Our other verbal (Hyde) is a D-line pickup.
Don't forget Paschal.
Good call, we've got so many guys in what is basically our front "four" that I can't even name them all.
Should be able to rotate them so they aren't tired at the end of games.
and no comment from some of the others...shocking
I would add Christian Coleman to that list of DL.
OH snap, this is the kid that I saw on the front page a couple of days ago. Looks like his arms go on forever in that front page pic. And he's got a thick frame. Kid looks like a future beast. Its possible we got two freaks of nature with our first two commits.
Outstanding pick up. He is a high quality prospect at an important position. Congratulations to Coach Turner and Coaches Minter and Phillips. Big, big commitment.
Graffree. Chapman. lol
Laugh it up. I don't keep up with the dates guys comitt, and maybe there have been a couple recently, but speaking historically, UK has always had a problem recruiting SEC calibre defensive linemen. I'm glad it looks like that is changing.
Jeremy Jarman, Corey Peters, David Washington(not here yet), Ventrell Jenkins, Myron Pryor, Delaine Means, Ricky Abren, Lamar Mills, Shaq Love, Mark Crawford, Donte Rumph, Mister Coble, Dequin Evans, Brice Laughlin, Tim McAdoo, Alvin Davis, Michael Douglas, Justin Henderson, Langston Newton, Tristian Johnson.
All of these (last ten years of so) have had an impact in the SEC, or they are having their impact now, and even a couple are a bust, but they were respectably rated. The point is, the cupboard has not exactly been bare.
These two current DL commits for 2013 are actually rated around the same as those mentioned above. Bell is actually 1/10 of a point away from being rated a 4 star DE right now on the Rivals site. As his season progresses, he may become a 4 star guy.
I( left some guys out but not for any reason other than I listed enough to make my point.
