Pick one guy to get for sure on signing day for football, who would it be, who is your "must get" above all else?
This is just for fun, and see what people think on recruiting.
My first choice (I know he's already eliminated UK) would be
It would be HUGE symbolically and he has potential to make the new offense that much more explosive.
My second choice (and legitimate shot) would be
He brings legitimacy that other recruits may follow. His brother, the DT Senat on his HS team.
Plus, on the field, he allows for a much stronger defense IF e develops into the true shutdown corner he is projected to be second choice would be
MacKenzie Alexander ( and his brother ) would be my choice. Choice #2 would be Timmons.
Keep Calm & Stoops On..
Ditto. Upgrading the talent on the defensive side and in the trenches is more important than offensive skill players. For offense I would say Timmons or Woulard. I know we have some solid QBs for the foreseeable future but landing a fish like Woulard would be huge for this program nonetheless.
I agree with you, elite corner, that brings his talented brother with hm and possibly their star DT with them. He comes, this defense becomes better instantly.
Timmons, he is in our backyard and can be a playmaker.
If there is one spot left, and its between Timmons and Alexander (say for story only 2 more schollys left for recruits so either the twins or Timmons and someone else) who do you take?
Jason Hatcher. James Quick is not and never was an option for UK. They do have a shot, albeit tiny, of landing Hatcher. I think it would make a huge in-state statement (as well as giving us another 4-star at a position of real need).
If I could have 13 more to round out the class they would be:
01. DE Jason Hatcher
02. CB MacKenzie Alexander
03. DT Ben Bradley
04. WR Ra'Shad Samples
05. WR Ryan Timmons
06. OT Kyle Meadows
07. OC Lovell Peterson
08. LB Courtney Love
09. LB Jermaine Grace
10. RB Daryl Chestnut/Jojo Kemp/Argeros Turner/Mychal Moody
11. WR Tony Stevens/Shelton Gibson/Javess Blue/Alex Montgomery
12. OT Maurice Swain
13. DB Sean Paul/Jaleel Hytchye/Godwin Igwebuike/Boaz Joseph
14. DE Za'Darius Smith
15. TE Steve Borden
16. QB Reese Phillips
17. DE Alvonte Bell
18. TE Darren Dowdell
19. RB Khalid Thomas
20. OL Ander Bodkin
21. WR Deangelo Yancey
22. OG Ramsey Meyers
23. CB Blake McClain
24. FS Jalen Batle
25. PK Austin MacGinnis
26. DT Jacob Hyde (Grayshirt)

Why in the world would we even consider putting a grayshirt on a kid like Hyde who was an Army AA? And plays a position of need? If it were to come down to needing to ask for a GS from anybody the staff would find someone less important in the grand scheme of things. As to the original question..........I would say MacKenzie Alexander followed by Ryan Timmons.
Yup. Stoops (and every new coach for that matter) needs a signature "name" recruit to generate a buzz and get the momentum rolling. Landing a 4-start,, Elite -11, QB out of Florida would be just the ticket. It sends a message to players and highschool coaches in the talent rich Florida that it's okay to pick UK over some of the big boys. It would open up a lot of additional doors in Florida.
Robert Nkemdiche.........you said one guy. Realistically Woulard or Makensie Alexander.
Timmons.....take care of our backyard.
This...on both parts.
Alexander. If he doesn't send a message then nobody will.
If I had to pick 1..it would be MacKenzie..Stoops has promised him pt at WR/CB/KR. Youd think wed also get his twin.,.a nice saftey..and possibly big Deadrin Senat. So this 1 would turn into 2 and perhaps 3 big time lands.Our defense would get better instantly. So MacKenzie would be a big time land..imo..for more reasons than just getting him.
Courtney Love wouldnt be a bad pick either..and we get him we may also land his teammate Marcus McWilliams.
Except one of Love/McWilliams is enrolling early at Nebraska, not real sure who it is though.
THink its McWilliams Mike..really dont think we will get either..this was a "hope so" "if you could pick one.." type deal. Me..Id go MacKenzie..you almost assuredly get his twin ..how many twins split up? None i can think of..and possibly Senat too? Would be huge!!
Is "RV" and his partner "Messenger" still telling folks that Courtney Love will end up at UK?
I'm going with an offensive and defensive guy.
Offensive- Samples. Big time WR who could really make an impact from the moment he steps on campus.
Defense- Hatcher. Would be a big time get on the defensive side of the ball, pass rushing end, something we haven't had since Jarmon. Also in state and at Trinity, which has been almost walled off from UK in the past.
A poster on CI is stating that the staff feels really good about Hatcher and he is going to announce at the All Star game in 5 days..They are confident it will be UK..Check it out.
1a. Timmons (Need to start getting the best out of our own back yard)
1b. Alexander ( would be nice to see that kind of talent starting to come to UK)
Other than those two I would happy to get 5-10 players that are listed on the UK targets on this site. This staff is doing a great job of getting the UK name out there and now I cannot wait to see how they finish up. Also, can someone tell me if Elliot is coming to UK? I have been out in Montana for awhile and have been "off the grid" so to speak. Thanks in advance.
Everyone can agree the UK brand name is expanding and just a month ago no one would think UK would be in on any of these kids like they are now, and looks like Timmons and Alexander would be top 2 choices.
What Elliot are you talking about?
Not Elliot I meant Coley. I heard that he is still considering coming to UK, but about 3 weeks ago I thought he was for sure not coming to UK.
