Lb is a need position for UK, especially after striking out at LB in the 2013 class. IMO..Stoops and staff will solve this problem in a big way with the '14 class. Dont be surprised to see UK take at least 4 LB's..and as many as 6 isn't out of the equasion.
My LB watchlist::
Greg Miclisse ILB 6'1 229 Bayside,Fla Athletic, agressive. Good quickness and hits like a Mack truck. With his athleticism and hard hitting..Miclisse will be tough to lure away from the powers that be..but I give UK a decent chance to land this very talented and underrated ILB. 50/50 imo.
Dorian Hendrix ILB 6'2 218 Dayton,Ohio physical ohio lb could be Uk's 1st verbal for this class. A very nice get for us if he comes. IMO..Hendrix is a lock for UK.
Derik Overstreet Lb/DE 6'4 235 Paducah Tilghman hybrid rush end could be suited for Lb. Athletic and long, with great football speed for his size. Im sure if an offer comes..derik would jump on it. Tilghman has been kind to Uk in the past..lots of die hard UK fans out west in Land between the Lakes area!
Jacob Pugh OLB 6'4 215 Tallahasse,Fla Amos P Godby star coming off a UK jr days visit with 2 of his teammates (at thier own expense) Rangy, quick backer that covers the field sideline to sideline very well. Already a 4* recruit..would be another big get for Stoops. Given Stoops and Eliots and Ansley's relationship with APG coaches and kids..and the fact Uk would more than likely take all 4 of the Godby kids (Pugh,Singleton,Culver,Fields) I believe UK is in greta shape here!
Greg Gooch ILB 6'3 245 Longwood,Fla Uk not in the mix yet..but should be. Runs a 4.50 40 and is a sleeper 3 star Lb in the sunshine state. Unsure of interst or chances here.
Brandon Lee OLB 6'3 220 Indianapolis high 4 star olb was offered by previous staff. Not sure where we stand now. Would be super nice get for UK. Longshot..to be honest.
Byron Carver OLB 6'3 225 Warren Central In state LB was recruited by last staff. Not sure new staff is recruiting Carver. Just a name to watch. Not sure new staff will offer.
Seth Hope LB/DE Ft.Thomas 6'3 220 Worth a look. Plays De for highlands..I think Hope is better off at LB at the next level.
Vincent Jackson OLB 6'3 245 Tampa,Fla Big, physical 3* LB could get some UK love.
Dillon Bates OLB 6'2 218 Fla 4 star florida linebacker would be a huge get for UK. Not sure on his interest level..but I've heard rumblings of Uk involvment here.
Shaun Dion Hamilton ILb 6'2 220 Mobile,Ala Everyone and thier mother has offered this kid. Uk was involved under Joker..dont know if Stoops has contacted Hamilton yet.
Tre' Williams ILb 6'2 217 Montgomery,Ala Carver stud is perhaps the best ILB in nation for 2014. Im sure Uk will have thier hat in the ring, but dont see this kid saying no to Saban.
There are a ton of talented LB's to pick and choose from for 2014. Keep a close eye on Hendrix,Mclisse,and Pugh. Think we have a great chance at all 3.
