Football Recruits Come Away Impressed With Junior Day


(@32_Brown)

Mark Stoops reeled in 4 of the state’s top 5 prospects in 2014.  He is trying to pull off a similar feat in 2015 with Kentucky’s three best prospects (left to right):  OLB Eli Brown, ILB Emmitt Smith, and RB Damien Harris.  (@32_Brown)

For Mark Stoops, nothing is more important in the recruiting process than getting kids on campus.  Similar to the show put on for Matt Elam at the Georgia game (you remember Vince Marrow’s “Y”), the football staff brought out all of the bells and whistles for the elite talent, most of whom had never been to Lexington.  Junior Day is the first step in planting the seed- many of the 2014 commitments attended Mark Stoops’ first Junior Day.  Here’s what some of the top talent from the state and around the nation had to say about their big day.

 

Just the #1 RB in 2015, no big deal. @Damien_D1Harris: What y'all think? 😏 #BBN show my twitter some love!!! #WhyNot #StoopsTroops

The 4-star safety committed to the Cats over Georgia. Auburn, Clemson and Tennessee in November.  Montrell Custis loves Kentucky so much that he doesn't want to leave. (@savage_custis)

It’s safe to say defensive back Jaylan Foster enjoyed his time in Lex.

 

@Clayton_Stalker: Had a great time down at Kentucky yesterday! #BBN

Mikel Horton’s high school teammates from Lakota West are VERY high on the Cats. Clayton ‘C.J.’ Stalker (right) couldn’t have a better name for a linebacker and George Asafo-Adjei certainly looks the part of D-1 offensive tackle.

You don’t think Swag is important? 4-Star Ohio linebacker Anthony McKee was impressed with the J’s on the B-ball Cats’ feet.

 

3-star WR Jabari Greenwood liked the unis so much that he needed not one, but three pictures. "@Juscallme_bari: Swear i look good in a UK uniform😏 Loving it down here!🔵⚫️⚪️ #BBN #WHYNOT"

    Awesome. STOOOOOOOOOPS.
    Off topic but huge news as our UK ladies hoops team just won 75-71 at Tenn, 1st ever win at Thompson Boling arena. This team has struggled of late but this should set them off on a great run. Great win ladies and coaching staff.

    STOOOOOPS! Love that man! I thought it was great the reaction The BBN gave him last night when they showed him on the jumbo-tron at the ball game. He deserves it and I hope it showed any of the prospects who might have came to the game that we are serious about backing #StoopsTroops

    – On another note, does anyone know anything more or (even better) have any more pics of the helmet that Uber RB Damien Harris is sporting for his pic (the chrome helmet with the blue face mask)? Is that a helmet we are planning to use? I hope so, I thought it looked sick!!! Love it, and if anyone could provide any more info about it and/or place to see additional photos of it, that would be very much appreciated! Well thanks in advance! Cheers and GO CATS!!!

      Yep, we could use those helmets if we want to look like Daft Punk

  6. Double Take

    Is that Damien Harris or Herschel Walker?

  7. David

    Eli Brown looks like a bad ass for sure. Hope we get all 3 of those Kentucky kids

  8. Truth

    Stoops is just plain getting it done. He owns this town.
