Good question. Here are 5 I think UK has very good chances at getting..and I feel comfortable in saying Uk is leading except on mabye 1 kid.
Drew Barker..its us or USCjr..Ga and Tenn making hard late pushes.
Thaddeus Snodgrass I feel its Uk all the way with this 4 star wr.
Mike Edwards S..talented db could help pull fellow Ohioans to UK.
Matt Elam best DT prospect in Ky ever..imo..Its Uk or Bama.
Jarret LaRubbio OG Middletown,Og OG would fill a need area.
I also think Uk is in good shape with several other elite recruits...Derek Kief, Delvin Purifoy, the Tallahassee Amos P Godby kids, Tony James, Mikel Horton, Darius West.
I think Snodgrass could be the next to verbal..or Mike Edwards.
Lots of interesting options out there. Daniel Ross..the Jeffersontown ex-UK commit Juco DT is 6'6 320 and rated 4 stars. Imagine a DL with Matt Elam and Ross in the middle..two 6'6 320+ monsters with good quicks and long arms. THey should both demand 2 blockers..leaving our DE's one on one with OT's or help from a TE, which would leave our OLB's wide open.
As far as who do we need/want the most..
Drew Barker..kid is a rare talent at QB. Get him..and the dominoes fall for what could be a high octane scoring machine..imagine Barker throwing to Sweat,Legree,Collins,Timmons, Blue,Badet, Snodgrass,Kief..we will get a TE or two this class..mabye Darryl Long..he would fit this offense nicely. Our OL targets are all studs...Nick Richardson, LaRubbio, Isiah Wynn, Caleb Samuel..Kyle Meadows, Justin Day, Nick Harris, and Ramsey Meyers would have some experience...Swindle,West, Zach Meyers, ect would be veterans..our stable of backs would be deep and experienced..Clemons,Mobley,Kemp,Taylor, Thomas...and we will land at leats 1 rb this class.
After Barker..My personal most wanted is Matt Elam..kid is a beast at DT thats only begun to tap into his tremendous potential. WE have Dorian Hendrix at Lb..this kid can play.
After Barker and Elam..it would be the WR's Kief and Snodgrass..then TE..then CB and LB.
I would like to nab a Jonathan Haden..the Dc area rb/ath..brother of Browns star Joe Haden..kid is a skilled athlete..tough..knows what it takes to succeed.

I would like to see the in-state kids show support for what UK is trying to accomplish first and foremost, followed by some great WRs and LBs.
Like Saturday after the game
