I know football recruiting is very fluid, and obviously there is a lot of time until signing day but I can't help but feel much better about these commitments sticking than in years past. Outside of Ware I can't see any of the other commits flipping unless something drastic happens. They are all so vocal with their support and it's obvious theyve already formed a great bond with each other.
My point being, I can see teams passing us as they catch up to us in numbers but I don't see our class dropping significantly in the rankings due to defections.
40 minutes later we are ranked 11. :D
bump to reflect West commitment
It is simply amazing to see the Cats up there with those names. If this staff and team is able to carry over this momentum to the gridiron watch out!
The only aspect that could make this even sweeter would be a 5 star commit. Not sure if we get one this year, but who knows with this staff. Straight killing it right now!!!
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I, I took the one less traveled by, and it has made all the difference (Frost).
My only concern is a lack of excitement if we have a bad season, and our schedule sets us up for failure. If we can pull a couple of big wins and get o 6, it will go a long way to keeping all of these guys I think.
One thing hopefully the staff did is preach the message that we are in a rebuilding process and not to expect a lot this year....lets hope we can keep all these current commitments and add some more!
Don't underestimate the BBN as bandwagon football fans...I can guarantee that MANY of our fans are excited as hell and will stick with this staff no matter what happens with our schedule in the fall. Honestly, I expect the buzz to be much higher when we finalize this class next February.
I could not fathom this amount of recruiting success coming off a below par season and a program in destruction. I think that having minor success next season will allow this team to continue to change the program for the better.
yeah, Prob so. I also think the staff, and Barker, are selling these guys on playing together. This class already seems to be building some commradere before they've even signed, and that may go a long way in keeping everyone on board! Boy, it's fun to be a UK football fan! I haven't gotten to say that in a while!
The kids that are on board know that UK will have a hard time winning this yr. The staff has told the kids over and over that when they come to UK they will help build the team to not only win 6 or 7 games but to win 9 10 or 11 games. This yr is a wash win or loose UK is building for the years to come.
Color me impressed with Stoops
I think you guys have an actual football coach again.
The joker thing was mind boggling and quite frankly, hard to watch.
Glad he is a gator now
Art Schlichter's cellmates and Mo Clarett's rugby team believe Ohio State always does things honestly.....
This really is amazing to watch unfold. I remember being ecstatic just a month ago when we broke into the top 25 in class rankings, even though it is still a LONG time until February. I was emailing my Bama friends down here in AL, bragging about UK bring top 25 in recruiting already. They blew me off and laughed. At the time, I never would have dreamed that less than a month later we would be top 5 with a chance to go to #1 (again, albeit VERY early in the process) if a couple of particular targets commit to UK in the next week or so. Do NOT wake me from this dream, damnit!
There seems to be an error in our ranking at the moment. The 247 Composite Team Rankings are showing us with 2 4-star commitments and 13 3-star commitments.
