Want proof that Mark Stoops is here to compete for the best? How about the fact that in one week, he has convinced top Trinity DE Jason Hatcher to visit Kentucky in January. Hatcher is one of the best lineman in America and is currently committed to USC. Getting him to go to Kentucky is a long shot at best, but prior to Stoops coming to Kentucky, it was a no shot affair. But Stoops has gone to Trinity and convinced him to give the Cats a campus visit at the least. It might not result in Hatcher’s commitment (we shall see), but it does show a work effort and desire that will result in many commitments down the road.
