Louisville just got a commit from 4 star Nijah Belluw (might have spelled wrong). Wonder what this means for 4 star safety Darius West? Could mean that West is ours and UL is settling for this guy. He only had offers from western michigan and UL so obviously not the caliber of West. Anyone have the scoop or maybe we could try to get an interview?
I believe the only info that we have seen that West was leaning toward UofLoL is an article written by one of their rivals guys that has a history of making things look much better for them than it actually is. Not saying we're going to get everyone we want, but not sure West even seriously considering UL.
Have not heard of the safety that committed to UL, but I am surprised a 4 star recruit only has 2 low-level offers(relatively speaking) unless there are some underlying issues.
Nice find on the UL commit and posting the info. I would be fine with your theory as well, as long as we get West. GO CATS!!!

Pretty sure West has already said Louisville was NOT his leader.
Ballew is rated 4 stars by Rivals and hasn't been evaluated by the other 3 services, so no telling what he'll be rated by them. Although based on his combine showing this weekend it sounds like he's a legit 4 star player, so it's hard to believe that we and all these other BCS schools wouldn't offer him unless there are grades issues or some other sort of thing.
Exactly my thought..... Grades have to be an issue with his lack of offers. He did perform well at the camp.
Maybe just wishful thinking on my part, but I am thinking that it's just a matter of time before we get West on board.
Would like to know how he is a 247 composite four star but isn't ranked by any other service but Rivals
Bc they only average in the services that have rated him
Why is it that when Lville who I do not like. Picks up a good recruit we as UK fans beat the kid down and say he has to have bad grades to have no other offers, or that he picked Lville so there has to be a problem with him. ????? UK just added a hell of a player who had grades that would not let him go to OSU AND ND. I love UK as much if not more than all of you. Just saying lets not beat a kid down for picking little brother. Just my OP. So go and down vote me and say what you want.
And I do think we will get West. UK needs to hold onto the early commits, and win 5 to 6 games this yr to show the others we mean buisness.
dvillepro..... I agree that we should not beat a kid down, no matter who he is committed to. We are just speculating that maybe grades are an issue being that he is such a high quality recruit with such little offers.
He has similar measurables as West, is from the same state, and both performed extremely well at the Rivals camp. Both are 4 stars. Yet West has about 20 offers, many from high major programs and Ballew has about 3 offers and UL is the only one from a BCS school.
Wish the kid luck and hope that grades are not an issue.
Haven't folks realized ratings in football mean very little.

A simple question: is your butt jealous of the amount crap coming from your mouth?
What basis do you have for saying Mikel Horton's grades would not let him go to OSU and ND?
What you've done here is pretty ridiculous. You call out UK fans for speculating about a UL commit's offer list, which was just speculation, while at the same time asserting as a fact that Horton's grades wouldn't let him get into OSU and ND.
Just to recap, UK fans speculate about Ballew's offer list, you come on here crying about not downgrading a recruit while at the same time stating (without basis) that Horton's grades are the reason he chose UK.
GTFO with that garbage.
He was talking about Snodgrass. I haven't heard grade concerns with Snodgrass either. It was just a little early for either of those schools to take Snodgrass. They had a few targets above him.
Yes there are people like Johnny Football and others like him. However, to say they mean very little isn't accurate. Alabama recruits the best and they win the most.
My point stands, regardless of who he is talking about.
It was his grades big fella. Mr. May will fill you in on that. Have you not been reading info on the kid ????
He was a OSU commmmit then ND.

No it wasnt grades. You may have interpreted it as that but it was that he wasnt a guy they were ready to take at the time like Josh said. Also it was Snodgrass not Horton
Whew, you're pretty thick.
Where, exactly, is the info you've been reading that indicates grades are an issue with Snodgrass? Could you provide me with a link or something?
Is May going to come along and share his intimate knowledge of Snodgrass' grades? Edwards just said no known concerns. As far as I know, Snodgrass may be a December graduate.
I have read their issue was not grades.
You just love putting your foot in your mouth don't you?
Rankings mean more than you say and offers mean even more than that, signed 95% of everyone else in CFB.
What's it feel like to just make stuff up? Do you actually believe what you write (pathological) or are you convinced it is ok to make the stuff up because you assume verybody else does too? (Compulsive)
This. For every Randall Cobb or Johnny Football, there are thousands of 2* guys who perform at or below the 2* level. Of course there are some 4* and 5* kids who vastly underperform in college, but more of them play very well. If you think recruiting ratings and class rankings don't mean anything and are a poor indicator of talent, you don't follow it very closely.
This. There are exceptions to everything, but typically rankings do mean something.
Wow didn't expect that from a uk fan but you are 100% right.
