Brady Taylor chooses Virginia Tech

TaylorMug

Well, we were all primed for a Yahtzee, weren’t we? Three-star OT Brady Taylor picked Virginia Tech over Kentucky moments ago, which is the first big shocker of the 2014 class.

There’s still a long time until signing day, but this one stings. Best of luck to Taylor.

Kentucky still has 21 commitments for the 2014 class, which remains at #4 in Rivals’ 2014 Team Rankings. There are only two offensive lineman in the class, but more help may be on the way tomorrow in the form of Nick Richardson, a four-star OT who is expected to announce his decision before Wednesday. Kentucky is considered his favorite.

    wonder why the class twitter page thought he was committing to us? Makes me believe he either lied to them on purpose or just changed his mind last minute. either way we will be just fine without him, we really need Richardson now.

    I’m not that disappointed, especially if we can get Richardson. That may be why Taylor picked VT, he might have suspected we were getting Richardson.

    4-star offensive tackle sounds like a pretty good consolation prize. Good offensive linemen make average skill players look great.

    Let the “I hate him cuz he didn’t do what I wanted him to do” posts begin.

    I just got a ton of calls from Kentucky’s staff…

    I was willing to overlook his douche-face if he committed, but……….

    He’s not that good. Didn’t want him anyway.

    5., I do not see any of those post on here. The kid made a decision anyone should respect. Uk still has a great shot at 4-star Richardson.

    Two bummers in one day. I’ve become spoiled by Stoop’s success. Can’t win ’em all. Come on Richardson.

    “Either way we will be just fine without him, we really need Richardson now”… That kind of contradicts itself, good sir.

    Ugh. I hate losing any recruit to VT. I live in Northern Virginia and Tech fans are the worst.

    It’s cool, if he doesn’t want to play in the SEC there might be a reason.

    Agree with 7 and 14 lol. My first thoughts when I saw his pic.

    For the record, everyone gets a prediction wrong. Not a big deal. Trying to hide it and being dishonest about it is pitiful.

    Best of luck for Brady and the fighting Turkey’s. Wish him the best

    18, I’m sure that MJ is in Alaska but doing nothing but patrolling the comment section. Grow the F up!

    #9 my bad. Only a 3 star. Had he been a 5 star and more importantly a round ball player the kid would have already been getting ugly tweets beyond the comments section. Not calling out our fanbase as all do it but we’ve already been there before.

    I don’t know, I thought he kind of looked like a Hokie.

    Talking about UK recruits, Thad Snodgrass tweeted out that he ran a 4.28 40 today.

    Paintsville’s Dairy Queen is turrible and has been for at least 15 years. They’ve changed many of their food products and of course the sauce. Go to Dairy Cheer instead!

    Mmmm dairy cheer is delicious! 24 I won’t disagree with you but to say it’s terrible is false. Dairy Cheer has slipped a little too over the years my fellow eastern ky rival.

    If Nick Richardson pulls the trigger tomorrow for UK, that will make SIX players in Rivals’ Top 250 committed to us. I’m not sure that’s happened before.

    21, you act like every fan-base doesn’t have idiots that tweet ridiculous things to recruits. Heck, I have never made a tweet and I am in my 20’s. What does his STAR rating have to do with anything? Is our fan-base suppose to get angrier based on the STAR rating of the player?

    Heck, UK has missed on BBall players under Cal. It happens! I do not get people like yourself that make such a big deal about not getting a player.

    Wish brady good luck and harris too. Stoops has been awesome so far. Give Stoops a couple of years, and he will lock down the borders of kentucky.

    I’ve played along side Brady for 2 years now. What people don’t see is how great of a leader this kid is. When it comes to looks who cares? He can play ball and that’s all that matters. Stop all the hate just because you can’t play college ball.

    Good…guy looks like a moron anyway. Probably can’t even pass classes. Doesn’t look like there’s too much going on upstairs with that kid
