    2 four stars is definitely better than 4 two stars

    1. LexJim

      Bill Curry might argue differently.???

      Tell Josh Allen that. I will take 1 of him {2 star} over 20 Fatt Elams {4 or 5 star}. Sometimes players just get overlooked {Allen} and sometimes players get over hyped {Elam}. Sometimes it alsomatters how hard the player {regardless of ranking} wants to be better.

    3. notFromhere

      Mashburnfan is right. Matt Elam, Micah Jones, and others ranked in the 4s didn’t practice/play to their potential. You want to get the best available that want it and want to be here to do it. Josh Allen and Randall Cobb all day over even a Denzil Ware and a Matt Elam. End of the day, I appreciate all of the kids that play through their college career for the Cats

      One 2-star prospect turns out like Josh Allen out of what? 10,000 of them? All of a sudden everyone says stars mean nothing. Do the research and all the studies will show you about 25% of 5-star recruits will be drafted in the first 2 rounds of the NFL draft. Stars do mean something.

    5. My Dixie Wrecked

      247 Sports has a great article. Over the past few drafts, only 1% of all 2-star recruits were drafted at all. 5% of all 3-star recruits were drafted. 61% of all 5-star recruits were drafted by the NFL.

      It’s silly to compare overachieving 2 stars to a couple of 4 star busts and jump to the conclusion that stars don’t matter. A roster full of 2 stars will get you Joker or Bill Curry results, at best.

    7. ClutchCargo

      And damn you people for putting me in a position where I have to agree with My Dixie Wrecked on something. Ha!

    Big moment for Kentucky!!!! If we can pull both that will change things on defense and offense of side for who will start in 2019. Because both would start immediately. However if we can at least pull one that would be more likely Ward, which we need.

  3. notFromhere

    JWard looks good in that uni! They would both look great in UK black and Blue! Come on home fellas!

    Dillon Johnson out of Mississippi is next up. 4 ?? recruit out of the 2020 class.

    1. jacksen23

      4 star*

    2. notFromhere

      Looks great, doesn’t he

    3. Caytsby60

      If we’re just naming 2020 RB’s that don’t have offers from UK, my vote is for Chris Tyree. Runs a 4.23 forty according to ESPN

  5. Trevathan

    Have a hard time believing ward starting immediately is a definite thing. Cant underestimate our depth simply because hes a 4 star and current roster wasnt. Agree about lee if he is as advertised.

  6. Alleykat16

    Bring these 2 back to Kentucky. We need both but one will do. There’s nothing wrong with those 2 * players they turn into top 5 NFL draft picks, sometimes.

  7. TheAssman

    I’ll take my chances with 4 star players all day, every day instead of a 1 out of 500 2 star that beats the odds

  8. ukkatzfan

    They can lose to ala in the west or beat ala in the SEC championship.
