Football Recruiting News
One of Kentucky’s most coveted commits recently received a visit from Mark Stoops.
Yesterday Kentucky brought the Big Dogs to Toledo. Stoops, Vince Marrow and defensive line coach Derrick LeBlanc paid a visit to Cavon Butler. It’s at least the second time Marrow and LeBlanc have seen Butler since the end of the college football season.
A three-star recruit, Butler is considered a top 50 interior defensive lineman. The recruiting websites aren’t as high on Buitler as other schools are.
Not long after Butler committed to Kentucky in August, Ohio State began to show interest. They officially offered Butler when the prospect unofficially visited for the Indiana game in October. The fight for Butler only intensified when he watched Ohio State rout Michigan on an official visit. While most believed Butler would flip following the official visit, he’s remained committed to Kentucky.
This week’s in-home visit is the first step to ensuring Butler will sign on the dotted line in eight days. The next step is this weekend. Butler’s official visit will be his first trip to Lexington. We’ll soon know if Kentucky can beat Ohio State in the race to the finish line.
There’s a new development in the recruitment of four-star pass rusher J.J. Weaver.
Less than two weeks ago Weaver committed to Kentucky. Following the ceremony at Louisville Moore High School, Weaver revealed he would sign with UK in December, but wait to enroll until June. According to Rivals’ Chris Person, that plan has changed.
Person reports Weaver will wait to sign until February. This news comes days after Weaver met with Scott Satterfield and toured the Louisville football facilities. Weaver told one reporter on Sunday the visit was simply a “favor” to Vince Tyra, but the latest development leads one to believe there’s more to that Louisville visit.
While signing in February may be the plan as of now, UK coaches have eight days to convince Weaver to sign on the dotted line during the early signing period.

Kentucky Football commit Amani Gilmore has been nominated for the FOX 8 Player of the Week award for his performance in the Louisiana State Championship game. As we told you on Friday, the dual-threat quarterback threw for 286 yards, five touchdowns, and zero interceptions to lead the Amite Warriors to the 47-20 victory. He also ran for 80 yards and a touchdown on 23 carries. His six touchdowns tied the record for the most in Louisiana Prep Classic history, and he took home Most Outstanding Player honors. His highlights are impressive:

You can count the players in Louisville’s 2019 football recruiting class on one hand.
If you’ve checked Twitter over the last 24 hours, you’ve probably seen a Cardinal commit reopen his recruitment. After announcements from three players — LaRue County athlete Anthony Adkins, Franklin-Simpson offensive guard Jack Randolph and New Jersey wide receiver Stanley King — Louisville is down to just
four three players in the class of 2019.
The wound to the Cards’ recruiting class appears to be self-inflicted. Randolph told the Courier-Journal he was informed Freddie Satterfield’s staff that he “didn’t have the length or the weight to play in their system, so they pulled their scholarship.” The about-face by Satterfield completely shocked the three-star recruit.
“We were told from somebody at Louisville that all of the commits that were still there were going to have their scholarship hold up, no matter what happened with the new coach,” Randolph said.
The attrition may not be over. One of the Cards’ four remaining commitments, three-star offensive tackle Zach Williamson, has an offer from Kentucky and officially visited UK over the weekend.
With only ten days left until the beginning of the early signing period, it’s a bold move by Satterfield to start pulling scholarships, especially when the rival is breathing down your neck. But then again, Freddie Satts is a bold guy. Is bold the right word?
Unfortunately, this post was outdated before it was even published.

Despite committing to Kentucky just nine days ago, four-star defensive end commitment JJ Weaver took a visit to Louisville this afternoon.
The Moore High School product posted the following picture on his Instagram story:
He followed it up by saying “it’s a business decision,” only adding to the suspense:
According to Rivals’ Dave Lackford, however, Weaver is “100% committed to Kentucky” and only visited as a favor to Louisville athletic director Vince Tyra.

Sources tell KSR that Kentucky isn’t concerned with the visit and still feel “very good” about Weaver signing with the Cats.
If he’s making a “business decision,” he might want to look at what Mark Stoops has done with former two-star recruit Josh Allen. As a top-ten draft pick, the senior pass-rusher is going to be a very, very rich man this spring.
Shawnkel Knight-Goff is one of Louisville’s best kept secrets.
A jack of all trades, Knight-Goff has done it all for Doss High School. Labeled as an outside linebacker by scouting services, that’s not a fair description. Over the last two years, the 6’4″ 210-pound athlete has played wide receiver, tight end, running back, defensive end, safety and outside linebacker.
Recruited by Kentucky as an athlete, Knight-Goff committed to UK in October. Shawnkel will have multiple position options when he arrives on campus, but he will likely begin his career as a pass-rushing ‘Sam’ outside linebacker. After watching Kentucky attack opposing quarterbacks throughout the 2018 season, Knight-Goff liked what he saw.
“Seeing how their system works and seeing how Josh Allen was available to adapt to his environment and how they played, I can see where it would attract a lot of players, especially me and J.J. (Weaver),” Shawnkel told KSR earlier this week.
A friend and foe on the basketball court with Weaver, they are two of six 2019 commits that can play outside linebacker. Allen’s successful season and Brad White’s expertise are too attractive to turn down.
Whenever Knight-Goff has talked chalk with White, it’s all about technique and hands. “I see a lot of drills that people might think they’re little, but it’s really the little stuff that counts,” Shawnkel said. “Whenever we’re in the meeting room, he shows me techniques and stuff that I usually don’t work on but I should, especially angle-wise or how you should lean.”
Knight-Goff is excited to learn under White, so excited that he’s taking online classes to graduate in December. Departing Doss early would preemptively end the basketball player’s exceptional career, but a broken right ring finger suffered in his final football game has already forced him to press pause on the hardwood.
If Knight-Goff arrives on UK’s campus in January, he could be in the middle of an incredibly crowded outside linebackers’ meeting room. If White’s room is too crowded, it’s fine with Knight-Goff. It’s not even his favorite position to play. That would be safety.
“I like the atmosphere when you’re playing free,” he said. “You get a mixture of everything. You can get an interception, catch a pick, run downhill, hit a man. You’re all the way in the back and everything’s in front of you.”
Back and Forth
Like most recruits in the 2019 class, Knight-Goff’s first commitment was not his last. He initially committed to UK in May, but publicly reopened his recruitment just two weeks later.
“I decided to take my time,” but at its core, something else was more important.
“How the situation went down really, my friends felt like it should’ve been more of a celebration with them. That’s why I had to de-commit, but I knew Kentucky is where I wanted to go.”
Instead of making the announcement on Twitter, he had to do it big on Senior Day. Rain forced him to change plans at the last minute, but he was still happy to share that moment with his friends and family.
You can watch his commitment at the four-minute mark below.
Shawnkel grew up cheering for the Wildcats with his father and brother. Just because he was a fan, doesn’t mean he was a locked in to playing at UK. That happened after extensive conversations with Kentucky’s coaches.
“It feels like a comfortable atmosphere. I feel like I can talk to them about anything. I feel open to them.”
Knight-Goff also considered Louisville. Playing for his hometown team had plenty of appeal, but that could not compare to what Kentucky offered.
“I was either going to be a hometown hero or play for the home state. The SEC is bigger than the ACC. It’s way bigger. You’re playing for your whole state. I guess you could take it as more power, more responsibility.”
Kentucky’s record-breaking 2018 season only reinforced Knight-Goff’s belief in the big blue. He enjoyed watching some of the 9-3 season from the stands. Now he’s prepared to help the program take the next step from the Kroger Field turf.
“In the next few years, more history will be made for Kentucky.”

It’s the second straight Saturday without Kentucky football. Unfortunately, we don’t yet have any practice updates, but we can tell you what’s happening on the recruiting front.
A few highly-ranked recruits announced on Twitter yesterday that they’ll be on UK’s campus this spring. Defensive tackle Isaiah Gibson and linebacker Jared Casey, the highest-ranked recruit in the class, will enroll early for the 2019 spring semester. They won’t be the only ones. At the bare minimum, top-ranked JUCO wide receiver JaVonte Richardson will be back on campus in a month.
Richardson is on campus as we speak. This weekend he’s taking his second official visit in Lexington. A four-star recruit in high school, Richardson spent a redshirt season in Lexington before academic issues forced him to attend junior college. After one season, he’s back in the Bluegrass.
— JaVonte Richardson (@JIGGOCHO_) December 8, 2018
He’s not alone. Another JUCO talent could commit after an official visit to Lexington. Three-star prospect Kelvin Clemmons, originally from Tampa, Florida, is one of the ten best cornerbacks from the JUCO ranks.
This weekend there are only a handful of recruits taking official visits. Next weekend that number will triple in the Cats’ final recruiting showcase before signing day.
Amani Gilmore wasn’t the only future UK quarterback to win a state title on Friday. Quarterback Nik Scalzo and tight end Nik Ognenovic helped Cardinal Gibbons win the school’s first ever Florida state championship. Unfortunately, a torn ACL kept Scalzo out of the final two games of the season.
“I didn’t play tonight, but the energy in this place was insane,” Scalzo told the Florida Sun-Sentinel. “First time in school history. I can’t complain. … Life has a bunch of ups and downs. This season has been a bunch of ups and downs – to start off 0-2 and win 12 straight.”
The two Niks emotional embrace will put a smile on your face.
And look at how quickly Scalzo hopped over to give big TE Nik Ognenovic @N11KOLAS a hug.

Kentucky quarterback commit Amani Gilmore has quickly become one of the best quarterbacks in the state of Louisiana.
In fact, he proved to be the leader of the best 2A team in his home state, winning the state championship for his Amite Warriors this afternoon.
In a 47-20 victory, Gilmore tossed for 286 yards, five touchdowns, and zero interceptions on 11 for 17 passing. He also added 80 yards and a touchdown on 23 carries on the ground.
Here are two of Gilmore’s touchdown throws, with the first being a deep ball to Kentucky four-star receiver target Devonta Lee into the endzone:

And the second being a 40-yard bomb down the left sideline and into the endzone:

After the game, Amite head coach Zaphaniah Powell told Jerit Roser of TigerDetails.com that his quarterback is never shaken and always poised under pressure.
“Amani is humble,” he said. “He’s never too high. He’s never too low. He’s right there in the middle, and he had a fantastic game for us today.”
It was a performance worthy of the Class 2A title game MVP award:
— Sam Spiegelman (@samspiegs) December 7, 2018
Speaking of Devonta Lee, the talented wide-out prospect finished the day with three catches for 118 yards and a touchdown, to go with two rushes for 27 yards and a touchdown on offense. On defense, Lee finished with five tackles, one forced fumble, one interception, and one 97-yard pick-six (though it was called back for a penalty).
Not too shabby for one future Wildcat and another potential one.
If you heard the following sentence five years ago, you probably would have laughed: Kentucky football has successfully flipped a four-star linebacker from Oregon.
Two months after he initially committed to the Oregon Ducks, Louisville Ballard’s Jared Casey announced he will be a Kentucky Wildcat.
— Jar?d Çasey? (@jared_casey01) December 6, 2018
Ranked as high as the No. 15 outside linebacker in America by Rivals, Casey went from unranked recruit to four-star prospect in one weekend this spring. Sidelined with a shoulder injury throughout his junior season, he used the Rivals Nashville camp as a platform to launch his recruitment into the stratosphere.
Oregon, Wisconsin, Louisville and many others quickly rushed to offer Casey, but none had a greater impact than the Big Dog, Vince Marrow. Casey wavered on his pledge to Oregon last week, just a day after Marrow conducted an in-home visit. Marrow returned to Louisville Tuesday night to seal the deal.
A versatile athlete, Casey began his career as an inside linebacker, but was bounced outside this season to unleash his pass-rushing capabilities. Casey is equipped with a nice dip and has a habit of making pulling guards look silly.
Casey is the 20th commitment in Kentucky’s 2019 class, which now ranks No. 30 overall. A day after UK lost a four-star commitment, the addition of another homegrown four-star recruit is the best remedy for the Big Blue Nation.

The Big Dog is howling.
Kentucky’s lead recruiter rolled the dice and landed four-star linebacker Jared Casey this afternoon. Vince Marrow has now successfully recruited four players from the city of Louisville for Kentucky’s 2019 class.
The timing of the announcement was impeccable. Yesterday the Big Blue Nation reeled when Kentucky’s Mr. Football de-committed from UK. After a chaotic 72 hours, Marrow shared this message:
Love guys that want to stay home and represent the BBN. BOOM.
— CoachMarrowUK (@vincemarrow) December 6, 2018
One four-star recruit is gone, but there’s another on the horizon. This evening at 5:00 pm Jared Casey will announce his college commitment on Twitter.
Casey took an unconventional journey to Division-I football. The explosive linebacker started his high school career at Trinity. After two years he transferred to Ballard, but was stuck on the sideline with a shoulder injury throughout his entire junior year. Without any film, college scouts did not recruit Casey, until one spring weekend in Tennessee. The unranked recruit dominated the Nashville Rivals camp to earn linebacker MVP honors. Soon after Casey earned a four-star ranking and offers from Oregon, Kentucky, Louisville and more.
Vince Marrow was one of the first to visit Casey following his recruiting explosion. However, Marrow could not seal the deal the first time around. Casey initially committed to Oregon in October. Once UK’s season ended, Casey hosted the Kentucky coaches for an in-hime visit. A day later he de-committed from Oregon.
Shortly after last week’s decision, Casey was in the stands when J.J. Weaver pledged his allegiance to Kentucky. Tuesday night Marrow returned to Louisville for an in-home visit with Casey’s family. Most recruiting analysts now believe Casey will commit to UK, with 69 percent of the 247 Crystal Ball picks in the Cats’ favor.
Losing the state’s top-ranked player is tough, but landing a Top 20 linebacker is something worth celebrating. Speaking of celebrating…
Josh Allen’s Awards Ceremony
It’s technically the “Home Depot College Football Awards Show,” but they should at least consider a temporary name change. The show begins at 7:00 on ESPN, but Allen could earn a few more honors before it begins. The Walter Camp All-American Team will be announced prior to the ceremony, as well as the Walter Camp National Player of the Year, which will be revealed on the 6:00 pm SportsCenter.
A Red Carpet Special from the awards show begins at 6:00 on ESPNU. You can afford to miss that, just don’t miss the beginning of the show. Based purely off this PR lineup, the Bednarik Award will be the first honor passed out tonight. Don’t miss Allen’s night in the spotlight.
Basketball is (almost) Back
Kentucky will return to the hardwood in two days when the Cats travel to Madison Square Garden to take on Seton Hall. Before the team departs for New York City, John Calipari and a few players will speak to the media at approximately 2:00. Keep it locked here for all the coverage you need.
Tyrese Maxey is Ballin’
The Kentucky commit scored 38 points Tuesday night in a variety of ways. Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough. Maxey’s team lost on a lay-up as time expired.
Vernon Carey Commits
The former UK recruit is reportedly down to Duke and Michigan State. He’ll decide today around noon.

Kentucky’s top-ranked 2019 commitment has de-committed.
It stinks. There’s no other way to spin it.
A top 100 athlete and the state’s Mr. Football, Wandale Robinson was the perfect poster boy for Mark Stoops’ first class after an historic nine-win season. An affable and explosive star, Robinson was the perfect person fill a position of need as Kentucky’s offense transitioned from the Benny Snell era into Terry Touchdown’s hands.
Robinson’s decision to flip creates a void, however, the biggest impact isn’t on the field.
Wandale’s decision will hurt morale more than it will Kentucky’s roster. This is the kind of decision that will make some fans never follow football recruiting ever again. It’s not just the flip, it’s how it happened. First reports of the flip surfaced while he told reporters he still planned on signing to UK in two weeks. That’s a tough pill to swallow.
“I regret that things happened the way they did,” Wandale said. “It was never my intention to hurt or mislead anyone or play any sort of ‘game.'”
The football recruiting machine chewed up Wandale, spit him out and took fans on an unpleasant ride. De-commitments happen all the time, but this one will leave lasting scars on the Big Blue Nation.
Time to Step Up
Wandale was penciled into Kentucky’s starting “Y” position — the second slot spot that David Bouvier played in 2018 — as the heir apparent to Lynn Bowden. Lynn is still going to be Lynn in 2019, but he needs help from others in the 2017 recruiting class.
Bowden was one of five receivers in the class. JaVonte Richardson, the second-highest ranked, had to attend junior college to improve his grades. He’ll return to UK in January. Isaiah Epps and Josh Ali have a combined 25 career receptions. Each have had a good game or two, but have been inconsistent potential deep threats. Clevan Thomas showed the most early promise by catching 3 passes for 28 yards and a touchdown in the 2017 spring game as an early enrollee. Last season he redshirted. In 2019 No. 18 needs to live up to that number’s good name to make sure the Cats don’t miss a beat without Wandale.
If the 2017 class doesn’t figure it out, others are waiting for an opportunity. The 2018 class brought three players who played in four games and redshirted. The 2019 has two incredibly fast targets, TaeTae Crumes and Demarcus Harris. The talent is there. It’s time to step up.
UK still has Recruiting Momentum
Just because Kentucky lost their top-ranked recruit, doesn’t mean the class is toast.
Five days ago the Cats got a commitment from a four-star Louisville pass-rusher, J.J. Weaver. Tomorrow they’re expected to receive a commitment from another four-star Louisville linebacker (and previously an Oregon commit), Jared Casey.
Stoops and Marrow aren’t only targeting four-stars from Kentucky. Four-star South Carolina cornerback Jammie Robinson hosted Mark Stoops on an in-home visit last night. A week ago Stoops was visiting four-star Louisiana wide receiver Devonta Lee. Both will officially visit UK on the final weekend before signing day. If Kentucky lands just one they’ll finish with a top 30 class, a.k.a. one of the best in school history.
We have a great class with playmakers and future NFL players on our roster time to move on keep challenging the SEC For Champions ship. Go Big Blue.

Losing Wandale Robinson is quite the buzzkill. Since Kentucky dismantled Louisville to end the regular season, everything had gone right for Kentucky football…until now. Despite the loss, Kentucky’s in position to finish the final two weeks of the recruiting season on a high note.
By Jack Pilgrim on ©December 05th, 2018 @ 9:30pm
It’s no secret Bobby Petrino didn’t always give it his all on the recruiting trail, especially when it came to elite in-state talent. As Petrino’s second tenure grew longer at Louisville, top-level prospects within a 100 mile radius seemed to opt elsewhere at an alarming rate.
During that time period, one former high-level local talent told KSR the former Louisville head coach was easily one of the worst recruiters he had come in contact with during the recruiting process, and it was a big reason he opted to attend college elsewhere.
“He wouldn’t get off his couch to come talk to me,” he said. “Why would I even consider Louisville?”
When his recruitment ramped up and a decision crept closer, Louisville was one of the first schools cut from the recruit’s final list.
And it seems to be a recurring theme with other in-state talent such as Stephen Herron Jr., Milton Wright, Demontae Crumes, JJ Weaver, Shawn’Kel Knight Goff, Jared Casey, Rondale Moore, and Tahj Rice in the past two years alone. There’s a hotbed of talent, but almost none of them are opting to stay home and play at Louisville.
This afternoon, Jason Frakes of the Courier-Journal investigated Petrino’s old recruiting efforts and how new Louisville football coach Scott Satterfield has pledged to change that narrative.
Satterfield said during his introductory press conference that the school’s “doors are open” going forward, meaning high school coaches and players are welcome to visit at any time and he would return that deserved attention to in-state prospects in the immediate future.
Frakes interviewed some local head coaches about what that means to them, and the responses were pretty telling.
Moore High School head coach Rob Reader shared a similar story to the one KSR heard a while back, saying Petrino never went out of his way to see one of the state’s best pass-rushers over the last several years, Kentucky’s latest commitment JJ Weaver.
“Bobby Petrino never came to our school and we have a four-star defensive end that everybody in the country was after,” Reader said. “He never took the time to drive 10 miles to our school. To hear the new coach opening that back up and being willing to share and build bridges and fix that PR is great. I’m excited for it.”
Male head coach Chris Wolfe said the difference between Charlie Strong and Petrino was night and day. While Strong invited coaches out for beer and pizza to help develop a personal relationship with each of them, Petrino stayed distant.
“Charlie Strong was very accessible,” Wolfe said. “Charlie Strong called me personally three different times, and he had his (defensive coordinator) over here every spring, no matter what, even if we didn’t have kids. He called and offered use of his facility when we were getting ready for a state championship and the weather was terrible. That goes a long way in building relationships and getting high school coaches to feel like the local colleges care about you — not just for your kids but for your program.”
With Satterfield and his promise to turn things around with local talent, Ballard coach Adrian Morton said he’s interested to see how recruiting battles will be going forward.
“It’s important to build a fence around the city,” Morton said. “I’m interested to see how the recruiting battles between Kentucky and Louisville go now.”
It’s been fun stealing away local talent such as Weaver, Crumes, Knight Goff, and likely Casey tomorrow, but the competition hasn’t quite been there from the Cardinal coaching staff over the past few years.
Let’s see what happens with the new administration.
By TJ Walker on ©December 05th, 2018 @ 5:00pm
While we received some bad news from Frankfort today, we don’t have to worry about three-star defensive tackle Isaiah Gibson. The 6-foot-4, 298-pound Springfield, Ohio native committed to the Cats in September and although signing day is two weeks away Gibson made his commitment official with ink, but maybe not in the way you’re thinking.
Gibson added a big Wildcat tattoo to his leg, so you could say things are pretty serious:
Some New Ink ??? pic.twitter.com/6YLKqZgIL5
— Isaiah Gibson (@IsaiahGibson75) December 5, 2018
Gibson picked UK over Minnesota, Purdue and Wisconsin and he’s another addition to the Ohio pipeline to Lexington. Of course he’s not the first player to get a tattoo of his future college, and if something crazy were to happen where he didn’t end up at Kentucky (not happening) that also wouldn’t be a first. Former UK QB Danny Clark was initially committed to Ohio State and put it in ink.
After decommitting from OSU and picking the Cats, Clark covered up the “O” with a lion.
Looking at Gibson’s tattoo he could flip to another Wildcat school, or maybe Cincinnati (if you’re a South Park fan this could be the start of a great ManBear Pig tattoo), but the kid seems to bleed blue so there’s nothing to worry about. Good for Gibson.
