Kyle Bolin appreciates UK offer, but happy with UofL


After picking up an offer from Kentucky last week, Lexington Catholic quarterback Kyle Bolin felt the need to reaffirm his commitment to UofL on Twitter this afternoon.

 

 

 

Although Bolin had nothing but nice things to say about the current staff, he said the previous staff left a “bad taste” in his mouth, as did the UK fans that harassed him after he committed to UofL:

 

See you on the other side of the Governor’s Cup, Kyle.

    Pretty respectable comments coming from a high school kid. Pretty well spoken and diffusive of any issues. Impressive. Good luck at UL. Hopefully we won’t miss that spot.

  2. POS

    thats what this kid is, as a player and a person.

  3. DCS195

    A sad commentary on those fans that feel the need to berate high school or college players for any reason. If you think that by doing so, you enhance your or your teams’ perception, standing or future, you are badly mistaken. Those that can only elevate themselves by tearing down others only show their immense immaturity. You deserve what you get and if you continue to do this, you’ll not have a lot positive happen in your life. It’s such a shame.

  4. Bullconrad

    Good for you Kyle for honoring your committment. This is also a good example that fans need to keep there thoughts to themselves.

  5. High school Football Player

    Kyle is as nice as they come, I’ll respectifully say I will take Patrick Towles, Jalen, or Max any day. Kid is great at P.R. though! Going to be a great coach one day!

  6. so what

    we don’t need you dorky.

  7. GoCats2010

    Has everyone forgotten how much of a prick he was on twitter all year? Including toward Matt? He wasn’t the bigger man then…sucks that Joker and crew didn’t respect him though

  8. Bolin fan

    2.) the only POS is you! Get a life you POS!

  9. your mom

    @8 mind your manners….it is Christmas, do we have to act like this?

  10. Hal

    7-whoa, whoa. are you telling me a 17 year old, d-1 level athlete acted arrogantly one time in high school??? no way….

  11. Jamaal

    @2 – grow up. Its a kid who sees UL’s qb situation as a chance to play sooner. Hard to disagree.

    @8 – tough talk on the Internet. Well played…

  12. rixter

    Kid looks like the spawn of Matt Jones

  13. Talent

    Watched Boling many times this year. Decent qb. He won’t see much clock at UL, nor would he at UK. Most scouts have said this all season. Will be a career backup.

  14. THANK You

    Very happy Bolin does not want to be at UK. The kid talks constant trash at Lex. Cath and is disrespectful to other players and fans. He will fit in perfectly at UL.

  15. UK2001

    Kid was forced to tweet those kind words. He has deleted most of his previous vulgar comments toward uk fans and the university on his account.

  16. Kevin C.

    Kyle, I’m sure you’re reading this…but you should know that UK fans don’t want a whiny, thin-skinned little b*tch for a QB…even though you would have been 3rd string at best anyway. Have fun filling that same role at UL…’cause you’re no Teddy B.

  17. JEREMY

    While I wish you the best Kyle, you have to realize that the fan stuff happens at EVERY school when dealing with recruiting. What do you think wouldve happened if you did commit to UK? You wouldve gotten the same if not more from UK fans,

  18. red headed step child

    This kid sounds well grounded. He probably knows he can compete in the big least and ACC. Now that ULoL has recruited above him, he is smart enough to know he will get a free education without the pressure of playing big time SEC football. Good luck to the kid, he will do fine.

  19. Ryan

    I find it hard to believe that someone who “grew up a fan” of UK would ever consider UofL.

  20. Sean D

    Man, I hate Lexington Catholic.

  21. UK Freshmen

    It must be great being a Card fan. Just sayin’.

  22. Catfan68

    @21…Dear “UK Freshmen”…why do feel the need to constantly post your negative comments on a UK site? You are obviously not a UK fan nor are you “UK Freshmen”…I can understand why you would like to be a UK Freshman because that would mean you would probably be drafted very high in the NBA draft and be making big bucks soon. You seem to be more of a UofL fan, so maybe you should change your name to “UofL five year player that coach just kicked off the team to make room for a better recruit who will never get a smell of the NBA”…it would fit you much better.

  23. Bradley

    Did we really need a 4th string QB? Ehhhh…good luck to the kid.

  24. Not Nerlens

    Its nice seeing that Bolin acknowledged the offer and came away impressed with our new staff. I think that was the goal of Stoops. They knew that they probably wouldn’t flip Bolin, but Stoops wants the best recruits in the state to understand that UK has a place for them.

    As far as Bolin’s ability is concerned, he’s the best QB in the state this year. Its hard to argue with that. That said, I liked Patrick Towles better as far as KY QB prospects are concerned and would take him over Bowlin 10 times out of 10.

  25. Wild Blue

    He realizes Patrick Towles will be ahead of him for the next three years if he were to attend UK. He will be a backup qb at UL too because Strong will bring in someone from FL who will be #1 on the depth chart. Hope Bolin enjoys his career giving signals from the sideline.

  26. InTheKnow

    I was told he hates rednecks. That is the main reason he wants out of Lexington. Too many hillbillies and rednecks are cayut fans.

  27. Pappy KnowsBest

    His Dad says he is allergic to doublewides and coonhounds tied to rusty Z-28s on blocks…well that and doormats of the $EC..GOOD choice kid.

  28. Beavis

    # 26 & 27 I guess from reading your posts the people at Lexington Catholic must have had him chained to a post over there so he could not leave. You are entitled to your opinions but not at the expense of the facts. The kid would not get a chance to play QB at Kentucky. I wish him well at Louisville.

  29. Big J

    Sounds like a nice kid but we need much better QB’s is this new offense. He would never see playing time at UK. Best of luck with the dirty birds. After his college days he may need to live in Louisville. The half that’s U of L fans.

  30. Bamacat55

    Good response from Kyle and if that is what he believes than good for him, it is up to next year’s football team to prove that he may have made the wrong decision.

  31. REDMAN

    ^^^^ still talking smack about a 4 star recruit. Last week when stoops went after him everybody was quiet.. now that he blew yalls garbage ass off, hes back to 3rd string? lol i love knowing the fact we will forever own UK

  32. Steady

    Looks like a tard to me.

  33. Bluto

    I have seen him play several times. Best I have watched in a long time Saw the Highlands game last year and that night he was the best QB on the field. Seems like a fine young man from everyone I have talked too.I follow him on Twitter and he has been ripped by UK fans. These recruits know each other and I am sure they talk. Come on cat fans lets use our heads.He is still a better QB on his worst day than anybody on here. Lets move on

  34. Bluto

    Oh I almost forgot. He has a younger brother at Lafayette that I hear is real real good. I am sure he is watching and listening to all this

  35. REDMAN

    and by “forever own UK” I mean have a losing record to. Take that!

  36. Bigcat76

    Wow. This kids seems too intelligent for UL. Maybe he’ll teach mushmouth how to speak to the media and for Rally’s commercials.

  37. Laker Cat 18

    34. Did his younger brother transfer from LexCath? He played for them last season in middle school.

  38. Bluto

    37. Yes he did.

  39. Laker Cat 18

    38. Was there a reason for this transfer? I heard they had high hopes for him at LexCath along with that class coming up.

  40. Coach Strong

    Good try. We’ll send you a postcard from New Orleans.

  41. Bluto

    39 I have no idea. I dont follow the Lex Cath program strictly. I just try to follows players in the Central Ky area. I have not seen the younger Bolin play but have heard rave reviews from several guys that have touted his arm talent and I respect their evaluation.

  42. Laker Cat 18

    41. He was a good player, just seemed to be overshadowed by a couple of outstanding athletes there. I don’t follow LexCath either. We played them last season and beat them handily. I’ve just followed them a little since to see how they were doing.

  43. Bluto

    42. Well I think trying to evaluate a 13 year old kid is kinda silly.Untill they get 16 or 17 you have no idea what you have. Kids mature at different ages. I have seen some great young athletes that were mature at 13 or 14 years old. When they were seniors they were not even in the fold. Thats the wonderful thing about youth sports to see the kids grow and develope.

  44. Laker Cat 18

    43. Yeah you’re exactly right about that.

  45. deeznutz

    I hope this fag catches herpes at ul

  46. Coachescorner

    45. He will be fine if you keep your mother out of Louisville

  47. bluristhurr

    Oh noooo what will we do without 20 former quarterbacks on the roster?

  48. Beavis

    # 40 You guys have a good time in New Orleans,,,we did. Better enjoy the city because you are not going to enjoy the game.

  49. Billy

    He is not good enough to even see the field at UK. UK will be National Title contenders within 4 years. Let him rot away in the dying conference know as CUSA 2.0

  50. 502Cat

    IMO, not a big deal. I am happy with our current QB’s in this system.

  51. Go Cats

    Who cares about Bolin. He belongs in Louisville. Why he felt he had to tweet the whole world, I don’t know. C A T S. Stay in Louisville!

  52. Ryan

    The kid’s comments aren’t necessarily good or bad, but some advice to him……keep your thoughts to yourself. It is tacky to publicly express the old staff left a bad taste in your mouth. Those comments leave a bad taste in my mouth about this kid. It has nothing to do with it being Kentucky…..you just have to know what is appropriate and what comments don’t add value. Keep it simple…..I am still committed to U of L.

    He will probably learn this as he gets older, but right now he is burning unnecessary bridges with the old staff and potentially fans. In the world of sports everyone is connected by about 3 degrees of separation…..so your public comments can have unforeseen consequences down the road. I wish him the best of luck

    The best part about this site is that anybody can write and post a carthartic sentiment in the emotions of the moment. Unfortunately, that is also the worst part about this site.
