ESPN calls Hatcher to Kentucky

The Worldwide Leader has just updated their recruiting profiles to list Jason Hatcher as a Kentucky commitment. From Kentucky’s 2013 recruiting class profile:

Hatcher has yet to say anything himself, so don’t break out the party hats just yet. He will announce his decision at 3 p.m. tomorrow.

    Been “Giddy” all day here in Nashville about Wildcat football. Great things to come for our Big Blue!

    If this kid signs is this going to push us into a top 25 recruiting class???

    That should move Kentucky into the #30-35 range for overall class. Keep them coming!

    I SAW THAT WITH HATCHER WE WOULD BE RANKED 22 IN THE COUNTRY. ESPNU JUST SHOWED THE CLASSES OF THE SEC AND WE WERE RANKED #14. DOES THAT SOUND FAMILAR?

    9. We are ranked 11 or 12 in sec on rivals.

    Even without Hatcher, according to Rivals, we have the thirtieth best class in the country. Of course, that means we would have the best class in the Big East, the fifth best class in the ACC and the Big 12, the fourth best class in the Big 10, and the seventh best class in the Pac-12. We are currently twelfth in the SEC. Considering how bad the SEC is in basketball, why are are we in the SEC again?

    #12 because it would be lunacy to give up tens of millions of dollars to leave the SEC

    This is the best stretch of Kentucky sports I can recall, and I go back to the early 80’s. Basketball program top in the country (not this year – yet), foot ball program on the rise, good baseball, best Kentucky women’s team I ever recall. Unreal.

    This is just incredible!!! Be a hero Hatch!!! I’ve been pacing around with all these news leaks all day and I couldn’t be more excited for where this class ends up. This is how signing day should feel!!! #BBN

    Hate to be a downer, but was just watching ESPNU, even with this commitment they still have UK ranked last in the SEC.

    Hearing this is one big set up. Hatcher will announce for uofl. Strong and Hurtt have been in his ear all day. Hope my info is bad.

    20, wouldn’t shock me. That’s what happens when info gets leaked too early. Other coaches catch wind of it and try to get involved

    Strong is not supposed to be in any recruits ear today. It is the down period. quit trolling “Insider”

    12- Don’t forget that UK being in the SEC is a huge part why some of the guys are coming.

    20) Its ok bud, denial is the first step in getting over having your ass handed to you for a recruit.

    The sec better watch out they’ve never seen a Kentucky team with this good of a recruiting class In a long time

    12) Also would you rather be UofL and have to scramble every ten years to find a home and have the mental anguish that UofL had this past year wondering if they were going to be able to land anywhere? Some people are crazy to think there are greener pastures somewhere else. It is obvious that BB does not drive the college sports train. Had we not been a long standing charter member of the SEC already, the chances of UK apply for membership and being accepted into any of the top four conferences is nil. It does not matter whether you are the top bb program or not. Wakeup! You’re dreaming.

    #28 – Keep dreaming bud. Its not going to happen. I’m quite happy with the current people we have.

    Sorry Mr. Quick. No room for you. That ship has sailed. I just love seeing these bird fans get so worked up. The writing is on the wall and they can see it.

    Hope it’s true but it makes no sense. How can anyone say he has committed to anything if he is not talking about it? Further, it is clear he has had a very hard time making up his mind, which is understandable, and therefore, I wouldn’t put any weight whatsoever on this until his LOI is signed and printed on the UKAD fax machine. That said, it would be really cool to add him to the group.



  35. TrinityKid

    Go to high school with him at Trinity just talk to him about the signing still isn’t sure and said he he won’t be signing tomorrow and will wait till it is closer to the April deadline. Stoops did bring all the coaches down to see him at lunch. Looks like he will be deciding later, sorry to break the news. Still mainly between USC and UK. UK is looking like a more likely option for him!

    35. So what’s the press conference tomorrow for??? What to say he hasn’t made up his mind??? You my friend need to stay in school for a long time because you are a dumbass!!!!!!

    # 19,,,,that is because ESPNU still thinks we have Joker for our coach.

    . 38. Well has it been canceled??? I just don’t see how all the sports sites would come out and say he has committed without knowing something. I don’t know i guess they don’t know and they are just assuming. I didn’t know that they get paid to guess and assume!!!!

    Never been this excited about a college football signing day before. Stoops is really hitting it hard. We still need to realize this ship is not going to turn 180 in one season, this is a good start but dont try to hang the new ball coach if we dont win 7 or 8 this year.
