The high school level in KENTUCKY will improve drastically in the next 5 years. Just look at the 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 classes one step higher every year.
Agree. Ky has started getting involved more and more in summer camps..passing leagues. The quality of coaching is getting better. 2014 yields a bumper crop of athletic LB's in Carver,D.Brown, D.Overstreet. Matt Elam is a 6'6 345lb monster DT..quick for his size. Drew Barker is a top 100 player. Nacarius Fant is a good playmaker at wr for Bowling Green.
If Ky could churn out a average of 5 to 7 4 star caliber kids per year it would go long way to help Uk talent wise..as long as we keep most of them at home!
It's likely just going through a cycle. Every state has cycles. Usually about every 3-5 yrs the talent waxes and wanes. Historically the states have stayed pretty constant. I don't really believe that kentucky will change much.
If the next few yrs show a spike in talent this may be very good for UK. Hopefully we can start to lock down the in-state talent that we have lost in the past.
I like our chances at keeping these kids at home much better now. I just wonder if this staff would have had the juice to keep some of the past kids in state at home. I think maybe they would have. It remains to be seen what results we'll see on the field but so far things are looking up for sure.
It is the old vicous cycle faced by lower level teams. The kids dont want to come if you are not winning and if the kids dont come you are not going to win.
If the coaching staff can convince kids that things are going to improve and get better kids to come things will improve.
