    You can keep Tee Martin and Randy Sanders. UT can do better

    Nice day today with a couple of late unexpected signees.
    I like Towles. Sort of think of Couch watching this:

    Just remembered this is 2011 thread. Duh !

    There's a kid from my neck of the woods who signed with Big Blue today. Cody Quinn, CB from Middletown High.

    I think he's too small to be an SEC CB. He's listed at 5'10 175 but that would appear to be generous.

    But I think he makes an impact on special teams, specifically the return game, almost immediately. Seems like a real good kid too. I hope he tears it up down there.

    He certainly had some other nice offers on the table, but decided to go to Lexington.

    Recruiting's so tough in the SEC. UK had an OK class but only Vanderbilt and Ole Miss rank lower according to Scout.com. UK got quantity but not quality. No 5 or 4 star athletes. Penn State quality of player based on stars was higher than UK and they had a horrible class for obvious reasons.

    My Volunteers lost two recruits due to their issues but it could have been worse. I'll take it. They're now loaded with WRs for our gunslinger QB to fling the ball to

    Those 4 stars haven't been doing much for Dooley and Eww T.

    Btw, Towles IS a 4 star...

    Not according to scout:

    http://recruiting.scout.com/a.z?s=73...=1&nid=4874259

    Of course Tyler Bray was a 3 star recruit and he was better as a freshman than five star recruit Jonathan Crompton was as a senior for UT

    I was going by Rivals... Scout actually ranks UK's class higher than Rivals, strangely.

    IDK, it's much more about how they're coached up once they get on campus, something I'm not too confident about with Joker and co.

    Stars is nice, but teams such as Florida State and Texas get top recruits year in and year out. It's what you do with them that ultimately matter.

    Living in West Virginia, I follow the Mountaineers as well. They got three four-star recruits and the rest are three star. I have more faith in Dana Holgorsen to get more out of his recruits than I do in Joker Phillips to get the most out of his. It's all in the coaching.

    Indeed coaching's very important. I think UC has gotten an enormous amount out of their recruits

    One service had UK's class ranked 31st nationally but 11th in SEC.

    I knew you were underselling Tee Martin, Sea Ray. He was hired away yesterday by Southern Cal to assume the same position he occupied at UK (WR Coach). I do think your next staff after Dooley is fired will try to hire him back away from USC. He just destroys it in the south. At UT he would be a recruiting juggernaut. LOL - hopefully he'll stay at USC.

    Things continue to look bleaker and bleaker under Joker Phillips.

    Seeing Mike Leach at Washington State is just depressing. Maybe we can trade Mitch Barnhardt for Leach??!

    I'm late to the party, but that's pretty cool!

    I'm actually from Carlisle, and we rarely if ever send athletes to big college programs, so seeing kids from Middletown and Springboro (they can boast an NFL and an MLB athlete, not bad!) make the next level always makes me happy.

    No way! Hey, Carlisle had an NBA guy. (Bill Edwards -- Although he really wasn't actually from Carlisle. His son, Vince is tearing it up for the Middies on the court now.) I'm a Madison Mohawk myself.

    You need to get home and see the Jalin Marshall kid QB for the Middies. He's absurd. Actually you can just youtube him, but you still need to see him in person.
