Is Kentucky becoming Wide Receiver U?


Kentucky’s 2014 recruiting class remains in the #7 spot after this afternoon’s 3-star commitment from Ohio wide receiver Dorian Baker. The commitment marks the 10th commitment in the class from the state of Ohio. Kentucky now has the # 3, 4, 8, 13, 18, 20, 28, 32, 34 and 65 ranked players from the state of Ohio in the 2014 class. We’ve already talked about Kentucky’s newly found recruiting presence in the state of Ohio since the arrival of Stoops’ coaching staff.

Between Stoops’ 2 initial recruiting classes, the 2013 and 2014 class, Kentucky has not only raked in a number of top players from Ohio, but they have put together a strong wide receiver corps for the future. Kentucky has been assigned the nickname of “Punter U” over the past few years after bringing a series of strong punters through the university with guys like Tim Masthay and Landon Foster. Could Kentucky soon become Wide Receiver U? The number and quality of the commitments thus far have been impressive.

2014 Wide Receivers

(Dorian Baker has not yet been added to the official list, but here are his rankings):


That makes two 4-star commitments and seven 3-star commitments in the last 2 recruiting classes for a total of 9 wide receivers. Kentucky has signed a mixture of big/strong targets, as well as speedy playmakers and receivers who can help Kentucky with slot routes in the Air Raid offense.

    Wide receiver U? Are you kidding. Blue is the only one doing decent from 2103. The rest you can have. We are last in the SEC and it’s not Joker’s receivers dropping the passes, running poor routes and not getting open. Stats from Alabama, 7 catches for 76 total yards. With the exception of Blue, the rest of the wide receivers are droopsies and fumblers in critical times. Oh wait, this is a developmental year, they are allowed to screw up as much as possible. Every other team in the SEC is burning it up at wide receiver. These guys are just terrible! Call it like it is. Wide receiver U, hilarious.

    Wouldn’t you need more than two active NFL receiver to be considered WR U?

    Define what quality of the commitments so far being impressive means?

    Check the stats, don’t include Miami of Ohio. This group of wide receivers is beyond worse than last year. Not drinking the Kool-Aid!

    Stats don;t show:
    Awful routes
    Pathetic blocking

    Do your homework before you write an article like this.

    I think the writers of this site put way too much emphasis on the number of stars a football recruit has. This isn’t basketball, you don’t just win by bringing in the best class and best talent every year. What good is signing 3 5 star recruits if they are all quarterbacks (that’s an analogy, I realize not real). Its about filling your needs. Players will have time to develop, and don’t need to contribute right away, so bringing in a bunch of 3* players is fine. If UK needs WRs, then signing a bunch is good. Building depth is good. You don’t have to have a top 5 class for it to only be a good class. If this class falls to 20, it can still be a phenomenal class for UK as long as they fill their needs and bring talent and depth to places it lacks.

    Randall Cobb, 2 star. Case and point.
    The number of stars rating out of high school is not much sometimes.

    WR U w/o QB U is meaningless.

    Wide Receiver U? Seriously? You need to get out of Kentucky more. Hate to burst your bubble but we’re a laughing stock to everyone else. How about focus on actually winning more than 2 games instead of this drivel?
