DeAngelo Yancey is a Cat

It looks like WR DeAngelo Yancey is a Cat. Earlier today, UK recruit Rashard Fant tweeted the news:

”Congrats to my bro @TEAM_yancey on committing to Kentucky today! #BBN”

Yancey is a three-star wide receiver from Georgia who picked the Cats over NC State, Buffalo, Ole Miss, Wake Forest and others. Scout.com ranks him the 125th best wide receiver in the nation. Yesterday, Rashawn Franklin told you that Kentucky expects three commitments over the next few days, and Yancey is one of them, along with Fant and safety Austin Logan.

    Looks like a solid WR that can make plays. Love how he used his blockers to get extra yardage in some of those clips. Great pick up. But don’t worry guys “Joker can’t recruit”.

    Yawn…followed by a giant Knoxville yawn. Cellar dwellers need to share toilet paper.

    Common – good to have you with us, Joker. Nice little pick up. You do realize Alabama has 110 dudes this caliber in their program (yeah, I’m counting walkons and gray shirts, and red shirts, and trainers). I appreciate the excitement about this one recruit – but let’s be honest, someone else will be coaching this guy in the near future (and he probably knows it too).

    Sorry I can’t get excited about a 3 star recruit who Ole Miss and Wake Forest were recruiting. We live in the SEC East who are recruiting mostly 5 and 4 star players. Joker is a good guy with Ky roots that seems to be liked by his players. ( They call him Joker and not coach, hmmmm) However, the BBN knows Joker is way over his head and will take us from a 6-7 to 5-7 and probably 3- 9, (if we are lucky to beat WKU who should have beaten us last year) Vanderbilt had the 25th best recruiting class last year with no one less than a 3 star. We have many 0, 1, and 2 star who are coming because the Joker team says they will get to play immediately ( and get slaughtered)
    The good news is we beat TN last year, the bad news we have to suffer through another horrific year with Joker and look at a 10 year rebuilding program. And we wonder why all the unsold FB tickets… not really, everyone knows why – It’s the Joker!

    Look all you UK football haters and Joker haters get a clue there are not many Basketball/Football programs out there that can dominate in both sports, very few!! This upcoming year may be “another” tough year for UK football and Joker but at least Joker is doing the best he can in recruiting look at what he is up against. With the recruiting that he has done I say next year will be the beginning of him bringing KY. Football to make a name for themselves at least NOT last in the SEC!!! If we could just give him a chance and stop bashing him and the program just maybe he “could” land a few “top” recruits but with all the negativity posted on here why would ANY decent recruit even consider KENTUCKY!!! AFTER ALL PEOPLE THIS IS THE BIG BLUE NATION!!!!! GO CATS!!!

    Oh by the way I forgot to mention in post #14 that most if not all KY. Football players in the NFL today were recruited to KY by JOKER that would include Woodyard, Johnson, Conner, Lindley, Cobb, and of course Trevathan who is battling for a starting role as a rookie!!! I’m sure I missed a few others (sorry) GO CATS!!!

    A few more to mention…………………..Masthay, Tydlacka, Pakulak, Peters, Tamme, Sneed, Williams, Smith, Guy, Lumpkin, Pryor. GO CATS!!!!!!

    Looks like a good prospect, however, I didn’t like the way he taunted the defenders on one of the TD’s he scored.

    Wonder if he is any relation to Sky Yancey.

    18- if this guy can produce at UK against the likes of the SEC, then he can do whatever taunting he wants. Im sorry but its time UK Football picked up players that arent afraid to go out and smack someone in the mouth. We need guys with some sttitude to get this sh!t turned around. Im not saying act like the longest yard and go whip ass on the first play but we need guys the will tell opposing players that “Im gonna run over ur ass and make ur grandparents feel it” then back it up

    It’s kind of hard to get too excited about the 125th best receiver in the country when you play in the SEC. Also, taunting will not be allowed by SEC officials, and if a receiver gets that call against him in an important game, his arse will be riding the bench for a long time.

    Joker is getting it done on the recruiting front. The kids we’ve gotten commits from so far have some nice offers. So far, probably the best offers we’ve seen yet as a whole.

    Why do so many people that say they don’t care about UK football, post something negative on EVERY UK football post. If you don’t like it, avoid UK football post.
