Friday afternoon saw two of Coach Mark Stoops’ biggest remaining targets for 2014 get excited about a team he is competing directly against. But with that news comes added excitement that Kentucky football has arrived… Elizabethtown native Matt Elam received a scholarship offer from Tennessee and Ohio State extended an offer to four-star wide out Braxton Berrios. It has been said on this site before, but it bears repeating: Kentucky is competing with the best of the best.

Of course the list is long for Elam, who also has Alabama, Notre Dame, Ohio State, and Louisville among his potential suitors. For Berrios, in addition to Kentucky he lists Clemson, South Carolina, Tennessee, and West Virginia among his top five schools.
Again, competing with the best.
