Kobe Smith Has Decomitted From NC State

The offensive line seems to be in pretty good shape for next season. So now Stoops has moved on to the other side of the ball. Kobe Smith, a 6’4 295 defensive tackle from Lawrenceville, Georgia, is currently on campus to attend the football camps that the Wildcats have been hosting. He came into Lexington after committing to the NC State Wolfpack in late May. KSR has learned he won’t be leaving that way. News broke tonight that Kobe has decommitted from NC State and of course it is no coincidence it happened while he is visiting UK.

Smith has been blowing up this summer as he has added offers from Miami, Nebraska, Tennessee, and Mississippi State among others. Kentucky has been after the 3-star recruit for a bit longer with Andy Buh leading the charge. Could we be rolling the dice once again before the weekend is finished? Stay tuned.

    Bud and Z played defensive end, not defensive tackle.

    Well just say DL, either way having them get drafted and one very high helps us get more DL prospects.

    This article is a train-wreck! 🙂 But, I really hope we get this kid, as we need DL most of all right now.

  7. Go get him Stoops! Great job on putting together a terrific O line group if those commits holds up. Hopefully we can get the D shored up with a few Yahtzees,

    I have to say after so many years to many to count i thought it would take an big name NFL coach to build an football program at UK. Brooks was an good coach but it seems we could never get over that hump and the 5 bowl games were an improvement but nothing more . I am so shocked at the job that has been done and is being done by the football staff at UK .We are for real ready to compete in the SEC in football .. Although threw the years UK has had it moments now every year could be our’s. Go Big Blue!!!!

      I guess the 2.5 wins a year by stoops is what has swayed you?

    I know people always talk about the grind of the SEC, but this is going to be the best UK football team that we’ve had in the last 10 years. Our only weakness is our secondary, with talent, experience and depth at every other position. 8 WINS. Count on it.

    Cant see any coach doing better than Stoops and staff has done since arriving here! Not much SEC talent when they got here and the program had been crashed in the ground without many fans making it through the awful wreck! Glad to see these kids liking what Kentucky football and staff are doing today. The wins will come and caint wait till kickoff! GBB
