    Re: UK Football 2012

    With the today's Nate Willis committment, UK moved up to #37 in the recruiting rankings

    Woohoo....yes I know to the Football powers, this isnt much but for what UK football has been, Stoops has come in and done a recruiting job. If Stoops could get 2 or so from the group of Hatcher,Timmons, Asiantii Woulard, or Ra’shaad Samples , UK could be looking at a #25 or so ranking.

    Here a few currently behind UK in the rankings:
    Penn State
    Oregon
    Wisconsin
    Michigan State
    Stanford
    Kansas State
    Louisville
    Arkansas

    Again...not saying UK will be a Top 25 team next season but Stoops is building something.

    You know, I'll get over how pathetic Joker was eventually, but it hasn't happened yet.

    He should be SO embarrassed of the effort and results he had at UK. Stoops has outdone his 3 years in his first 50 days.

    Today Hatcher did officially decommit from the Trojans. Looks like it is down to Ky or Louisville. Wow....can you imagine a few years ago saying a stud would take UK or U of L over USC ?
    I would give U of L the advantage now but it may just be a slight margin right now. We shall see.

    Where was that Card fan who was saying there was no trouble with Clint Hurtt? Gonna have to dig that thread up...

    Bridgewater was likely given illegal benefits in his recruitment to UM by "Recruiter of the Year" :wink wink:. Should not have been allowed to follow Hurtt to UL. There are a few others.

    It's disgusting when a coach moves on to a new program and leaves the old program on probation. Just shameful.

    Am told by source Lville asst Clint Hurtt got his call from NCAA (Shapiro case) & "they're pretty much throwing everything at him."

    Wonder how many illegal inducements Hurtt gave to players who ended up at UL?

    Noteworthy football news today :

    Big news from the football recruiting world late. 4 star LB and national Top 250 player James Hearns has decommitted from Florida. The LB says he wants to look elsewhere and he is visiting Lexington this weekend.

    @RowlandRIVALS 4-star LB Hearns on #UK: "I would say they're my favorite. There's definitely a chance I'll commit this weekend b/c of Coach Stoops there."

    According to Twitter, Stoops got two commitments today. Haven't seen any names yet.

    Re: UK Football 2012

    Sundays news:

    Marcus McWilson, the 4-star DB has officially de-committed from Nebraska, and he says UK is now in the lead. He told Rivals that, “I just told the coaches up at Nebraska…I called them up and officially de-committed.” He said the decision was “not emotional” and that he is doing what’s best for him.

    Some hilarious meltdowns over this kid on the Nebraska boards.

    Two things:

    1) This isn't Tom Osbourne's Nebraska.

    2) This sure as hell isn't JOKEr's Kentucky!

    Re: UK Football 2012

    McWilson officially committed to UK today, as did Alex Montgomery. The recruiting job Stoops has done, in just a couple months on the job, is mind-boggling.

    Re: UK Football 2012

    One kid on the radar, Keith Kelsey Jr., today chose Louisville over KY.
    Hopefully Hearns signs and we will be okay there.

    Also, Alex Montgomery out of Florida commits today choosing UK over U of L.
    Here is a tweet on AM.
    @MichaelWarchant Have to say possibly the biggest steal for Kentucky in landing Alex Montgomery. Kid dominated State Finals
