Class of 2014 Doesn’t Stop

Just when you thought Kentucky football’s Class of 2014 couldn’t do anymore, they keep finding more ways to interact with fans and other recruits. Since Drew Barker’s commitment in May the Class of 2014 has consistently kept the hype train rolling. It began with Drew and Co. creating the @UK2014Class Twitter to reach out to fellow recruits, then Drew began diary-ing for KSR, and before #BBN could blink Yahtzee! turned the Cats into a (momentarily) #1 recruiting class.

In the last month dead period has brought less and less breaking news to the forefront. Most would assume that would slow down the Seniors-to-be, but these guys aren’t your typical Seniors-to-be. Since 3-star WR T.V. Williams committed to the Cats last week, 2 of the classes biggest names- Drew Barker and Thaddeus Snodgrass- have taken to a new form of social media to answer fans questions daily, keeping the KY football fire alive, even during the dullest of moments.  If you aren’t following them on Twitter (@D_Barker7 and @ThadSnod1) then you probably have missed their ask.fm sessions with fans. It’s a pretty simple concept; after creating an account, you can send the players a variety of questions, giving them a queue to select who they wish to respond to, very similar to our live blog.  The questions are sometimes as outrageous as the live blog, making it entertaining from a distance while allowing you to spend some one-on-one time with underaged kids without being considered a pedophile. Here are a few Q and A’s below.

Drew:

love your KSR appearances…the whole state is pumped…well except for half of louisville 🙂

Who?

Thaddeus:

How are you and Mike Edwards ?

That’s my boy we going to be going at it everyday in practice at UK

Drew:

Do you see any recruits from UK’s 2014 class flipping to another school or are all of them solid?

Solid as a rock!

Thaddeus:

Who’s the funniest commit in the UK 2014 class?

Mikel [Horton]

Drew:

Which fan-base do you dislike the most?

Lol this question could get me in trouble.. But I don’t think it takes a very smart person to know the answer!

Thaddeus:

Who has the hottest girlfriend on the team

Me (; just playing idk

Drew:

Hottest Celebrity?

Kate Upton is baddddd

Thaddeus:

How often do you workout

Drew:

Is the attention you get from UK fans ever overwhelming?

No! I love their passion!

    I really hope we can get some of the top receivers to committ to UK. Don’t know what the latest news is in that area. We could use some more linemen and another linebacker or two. Glad Stoops and compnay are doing well – it’s time to take it to the field and play some football!!!!

    These are your future leaders BBN. They seem to be very mature for HS students. Very impressive!
    Fast forward to 2033: University of Kentucky’s new head football coach “Drew Barker” and
    Offensive Coordinator “Thaddeus Snodgrass”.

    Why give a name if in between each name you both are answering? Are you all exchanging roles in who is asking the question and who is answering. The bolded names on went to confuse the first to commenters obviously…right? Wait…maybe I’m wasting my time
