The Big Blue football recruiting machine keeps churning out great news. Today, Darrin Kirkland–a four star prospect according to every major recruiting service–visited Kentucky and spent a little quality time with Coach Stoops. Talking about how incredible it is for prospects like these to visit Kentucky may be getting a little old these days. After all, it is quickly becoming the norm for top-notch football players to make Lexington a priority destination. Still, when a guy like Darrin Kirkland makes a stop in Lexington, it’s hard not to think about the days of old when we were talking ourselves into thinking a guy with all MAC offers was going to be a program-changer.
Hailing from Indiana, Kirkland’s notable offers (they’re really all notable but these are the highlights) include, Michigan, Ole Miss, Penn State, Tennessee, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas, and Wisconsin. When schools from all over the country are spending the money to recruit a kid from Indiana, you know he is legit.
