If you posted things without the VIP box checked, you'd probably get more responses. Just an observation.

Keep Calm & Stoops On..
Yeah I saw that, also Garret Johnson posted about talking to coach Scott. I haven't heard of this kid
I agree with all of yours as well, crazy how this time last year we were recruiting 2 star talent and now we are going after top prospects.
I watched film of Braxton Berrios early and I was very impressed, fast Wes Welker type.
Dorian Hendrix - 3 star LB
Thaddeous Snodgrass - 4 star WR
Drew Barker - 4 star QB
Mikel Horton - 4 star RB
Darius West - 4 star S
Mike Edwards - 3 star S
Jarrett Larubbio - 3 star OL
Matt Elam - 3 star DT
Derek Kief - 4 star WR
Austin Roberts - 4 star WR
Darryl Long - 3 star TE
Nick Richardson - 4 star OL
Marcelys Jones - 3 star OL
Delvin Purifoy - 4 star LB
Jacob Pugh - 4 star LB
De'Eric Culver - 3 star DB
Thats 16 freshmen.. Will likely add 3 JUCOs for the DL/LB/DB spots and 2-3 highly recruited guys that come into the picture late for whatever reasons.. I'd take 9 4 star and 7 3 star recruits and likely 3-4 more 3 stars from the JUCO ranks and maybe a couple more 4 star guys late.. I'd bet we'd have a Top 15-20 class, at worse..
The only one I'm worried about right now is Drew Barker. I think everything else will fall into place very nicely after him, but I'm very concerned about Spurrier and South Carolina.

Not true...let's keep it real.
What's not true? I said he is like Welker because both are smaller and quick, and that is real.
I was talking about the two star recruiting statement.
Darren dowdell was 2 star so technically we were
2 star and low three star, not much difference in them, only exception was Alvonte Bell.
Dont forget Battle..he was a two star..as was dowdell and Day was untill just before NSD. Easy to see braves meant UK was recruiting much better talent.
D.Purifoy..lets hope we flip this kid
C.Samuel 4 star OT/De still has Cats atop his list.
Anything more than this would be icing on the cake.
another great list!
when i was saying two star guys i was simply saying this year we are going after higher rated guys, nothing against lower rated guys because some turn into great players. for the most part though you want as highly rated players as you can get.
I am also happy and impressed by the recruits that we are trying to get now as well, but to compare to what was happening before is just unfair. The previous staff had little to work with, ie no percievable change since Joker was moved up, no promise of upgraded facilities, no recruiter with Ohio ties that was successful in Ohio etc.
With that said Joker was still able to get a little better recruits each year with little to promise other than hope. He did not set out to recruit two star players, but did have to fill his classes towards the end when all else failed. Right now Stoops is recruiting several players that have no rating at all. I trust the coaches to know what they are evaluating rather than some recruiting service based on highlight videos and I gave Joker the same courtesy.
I just feel it is much classier to be excited about the future without belittling the past. That is water over the dam and it does nothing to further the program. Its time to move on, we are not UL. Maybe its just me!
I respect your opinion of things and we are all entitled to the things we believe. I agree with how the previous staff didnt have the promise of facility upgrades and other things. I also believe the previous staff overlooked talent, for example they didnt even target many top players from Kentucky like Ryan Timmons and now Drew Barker. There are others but those two are the main two from last year and this year. IMO Joker just wasnt head coach material, i always liked him but he seemed to drop as a head coach. As he took over it was like the team had no one motivating them. All i know is i'm happy with this new staff and everything they are doing.
I want Braxton Berrios. He's a Wes Welker clone, and you can never have enough Wes Welker's on your team.
Been a Cat fan since August of '92
I've heard this statement several times and I hope you guys are correct and I hope he becomes a Wildcat.
I like him
Potentially we could fill our entire class with 3 & 4 stars from just Kentucky & Ohio !! Unheard of prior to Stoops arrival.
