Jd and Chris- on signing day, Rick minter was on record as saying that LB was the most important position for the following class (2014). He said they really want to get bigger at all their lb spot with this class, especially at MLB. Who would u guys say uk is in good with at lb in this class?
Myles Nash for one.
Nash is one. Kimbrough is a guy they'd love to have, but I don't see it happening. He's not been too receptive of late. Still evaluating Poole up in Cincy, but not sure if he's going to draw an offer.
Seems like they have more options at OLB and hybrids at this point.

I'm not sure why we arent recruiting the kid from FT Lauderdale Micheal Deeb... He's 6'2 235#, yea he's a 4 star but I would rather strike out than not ever try to see what he thinks of UK... We need a stud LB in this class badly, I would love for it to be Deeb. If not than I think we should consider looking in the Juco ranks for one. The Butler kid would be a nice addition, i'm not sure if he's going to be able to play though, he's been trying for years.
The kid from CInci is a bit to small IMO to play ILB in a 34, or hybrid scheme. His older brother was a different story though. We need kids that are 6'+ that can carry 230+#... They don't have to be that large when they get in lex, but by the the time they are playing the should be...
Quinten James is listed as a ILB and RB but if we landed him I think he would end up at ILB, his favorite school is miami and it seems they are close to making him a member though... Recruiting is so frustrating as a UK fan, I hate it that we can't never seem to land studs at WR, LB or O-lineman like other SEC schools... Even when our state produces 6 top 100 players it seems like we can't get one, I really wish this would change, we need kids like Timmons, Bivin and Quick... Just imagine how pumped you would be if we had those along with Hyde and Bell on the list right now...
