Blue Smith commits to Ohio State


According to @Bill_Kurelic, an Ohio State recruiting expert, Blue Smith has committed to Ohio State.

On Ohio State, Smith has this to say:

“I just felt like it was home. When I was at the camp (in June) it was the place to be. I felt comfortable in my decision and the opportunity they give players outside of football after they leave college.”

Kurelic has more from Smith at this link.

Smith was long a UK target as he visited the Cats seven times over his recruitment with the most recent being on May 27th. Over the past few weeks, Smith has gone from a possible UK lean to his inevitable commitment to Urban Meyer. As I mentioned in a earlier post, while Smith’s commitment is a disappointment, but it is not the end of the road for the Class of 2018. This class is still looking to be the best in Mark Stoops’ time at Kentucky.

To have even been in the conversation for a player of Blue’s caliber was unheard of 5 years ago and it is proof as to how far this program has come. Instead, we were used to following announcements of whether a recruit would choose Kentucky or a MAC/AAC school. This program has come a long way and while we didn’t win today, there will be a lot more opportunities to win next time.

Good luck to Blue in his future!

    Not surprising, wish he were coming, but cant fault a kid for doing what is best for himself. But otuside of that, I am happy that this will humble a certain young caller to the radio show who has grown a bit too arrogant in their skills as a recruiting analyst.

    Yev I agree. That certain young caller to the show was getting kind of annoying. Hate to knock a kid down but he was getting too arrogant. Good luck to Blue Smith at OSU.

    I couldn’t agree with you guys more. Not only will it probably humble him, but I hope he’s not doing things that could get the program in trouble. There have been several times Matt has told him on air thaqt he can’t do certain things he was doing. I can just see a potential recruiting violation down the road that hurts the program because of him.

    Kid was less than an hour from OSU so not surprising. Agree the fact he considered UK shows how far we have come. Stoops and staff will get it done and will still be the best class we have ever had. Continues that depth that is VITAL to winning, we are close. Will not wish him the best like others, but will also not bash him. If he does not have great success it helps us down the road with other top recruits.

    OSU will and should be fav to win title. They return alot and have an excellent coach. Lets hope they slip up and take a back seat.

    Maybe we should recruit PA kids. They are beating one of the best teams in Ohio the last few years by 35 at halftime.

      Historically Pennsylvania may be superior to Ohio in high school football. Back in the day PA was very good to us.

      Long long way… maybe urbane mater will fake more health problems to go coach at another school that doesn’t play in as strong of a conference. The man has no integrity AND he’s a dbag

    Still al long time until signing day and Urban is not telling the kid the truth about letting him play WR. He’s going to move him to TE regardless of what he’s telling the kid.
