Default For those that follow recruiting, what Kentucky is doing is crazy!

Rivals.com Football Recruiting - Kentucky on historic recruiting run for 2014

Good read here. It's crazy what Mark Stoops has done at UK so far and great to see for the program.

I believe you should probably wait to see him coach a game before you declare UK a "program on the rise" In fact, I will almost guarantee he loses the opener against WKU.

Uh, you don't think this is a rise in recruiting? And this is the 2014 class. They will struggle in 2013 for sure. But if you don't think this is a rise for their program, then you are blind lol. I never said the program is on the rise, but what they have done in recruiting so far will definitely improve the chance of that happening.

I hated to see Mark leave Tallahassee, but we all knew it would happen and nobody admonishes him. Assistant to Head was a given. Glad to see him continue to succeed.

Recruiting only means so much. They have to continue to improve once on campus.

Definitely. I was honestly surprised UK could land him with several high profile jobs available. It was a home run hire for them for sure.

really no where but up to go for this school... but it'll take more than one class to make them relevant in the SEC.. id look for 2016-2017 to start flexing... if they can keep bringing in the talent.

You and I both know that recruiting means nothing until those kids sign on the dotted line. Fact is, if a bigger school wants them then UK will lose them. But if it makes you happy then good for you.

Plenty of bigger schools want all of these kids, so I don't get what you mean.

I was simply stating the recruiting job done by the staff has been incredible at a basketball school like UK. Yes, we will see over time how good they are, but what is happening is unprecented for Kentucky football. This is very likely to be their best class EVER.

To the above poster, yes, they got 4 star Drew Barker. Top 5 QB in America. He chose UK over Tennessee and South Carolina out of his final 3.

Anyone who follows the UK football program knows this is big time news, stoops took an FSU defense that was ranked in the bottom 100's (175th) I believe and brought them to 2nd overall in 2 years. The guy is one hell of a coach and was a complete home-run hire for the UK program. Like others have said, these guys haven't even signed yet so there is no guarantee, but I am extremely excited. Stoops is a highly touted recruiter so there is no need for any ridiculous comments go as far as "sanctions" go. When speaking about "coach cal", don't throw that low blow, a prestigious program speaks for its-self. You don't have to have coaches throwing money in guys' faces if you're in a type of coaching situation like you are at UK. If that's the case, then Bill Self, Roy Williams, and Coach K are all cheaters as well given their school's nat'l championships & prestige level..

LoL. Yeah. Cal cheated everywhere else but he stopped when he got to Lexington? You blue bloods really take the cake when it comes to pulling the wool over your eyes, or in some cases tobacco leaves.

You obviously have no idea what happened at Memphis or UMass to post this. This is the football forum. Leave basketball out of it shall we?
