And for great reason! I have never heard of so many talented players visiting at the same time and/or being interested in Kentucky football. Stoops has landed Za'Darius Smith over some other big time schools without Smith so much as ever visiting the campus. Meadows and Hytchye liked Kentucky but didn't believe in the previous regime and had turned their interest elsewhere. Stoops changed that quickly. Woulard wasn't even on our radar and now we likely lead for the Elite 11 MVP. Samples was solidly committed to Oklahoma State, now we have a chance to flip the 4-star WR. Badet is another very talented player. I had never heard of Aregeros Turner, and now we lead...I could go on and on, but you all know. Our football coach is making a media appearance January 12th, the same day as an conference basketball game, and with recruits on campus. You know how we all say Coach Cal "gets it?" Apparently Coach Stoops does too. Kudos to Mitch Barnhart, also, on an outstanding hire and push for funds for the stadium renovations. Go Big Blue!

I love palpable.
Honestly, never seen anything like it on the football side of things. Never seen the fanbase so united, passionate, excited.
The UK Bball players must be distracted with all the football recruiting news today. LoL
