Middleton Lifts Cats to #2 in Football Recruiting Rankings


It just keeps getting better. After Adrian Middleton (a South Warren DT) committed to Kentucky this afternoon, the team moved up another spot to #2 in Rivals’ 2014 team recruiting rankings.

As Coach Neal Brown (a Kentucky boy himself who was Middleton’s main recruiter) put it on Twitter, “Must keep the BEST players at home! Great day in My Old Kentucky Home.”


This is the best game of Yahtzee I’ve ever seen played.

    Before anyone says it, yes, we will probably drop in the rankings. But it is still ok to get excited about what has never been done here before… As long as none of the fans get out of control and start talking trash to other fan bases. I think it is ok to get pumped about this class and get excited about the future!

    #2 Once they add Brady’s commit then we’ll be #1. Since they use a points system and Brady is a 3*, he’ll push us over A&M.

    #2 & #3 hold tight on that thought.

    If Kentucky gets 25 players like they seem to be pushing for, then UK can easily lock up a top 15 class. If all of our 4 stars stay committed, and we can pick up a few more, then we’re in a position we’ve never been before. Plus, there is a chance that a few of these 3-stars have break out senior seasons. And this isn’t even considering the fact that Flannigan may be a 4 star JUCO player once the rankings come out. This class may not end up being a top 10, but this class is going to change Kentucky football. It already is.

    #5 Only the top 20 rated players count towards team ranking. No worries, we’ll still finish Top 15 (like Barker promised) and ahead of Ohio State and Michigan.

    KSR, can we stick to using one recruiting service site for your rankings? I know you use rivals a lot, but you have also used 247 on here before. It would be easier if you would stick with one, I personally think Rivals does the best job. Either way, UK is in the top 5 in all, except ESPN, due to most of the players yet to be ranked. GO CATS!!!!!! BBN!

    Why? Emotionally it makes sense, BUT…justify it.

    Using your “logic” the biggest Car Manufacturer in the world is STILL GM…because GM has always been the largest manufacturer. Just because something has been a certain way does not mean it MUST be that way…

    Further, a market explanation can be that IF you come to UK you can make a difference and “be someone” and hence increase your NFL status, TODAY…whereas as at Alabama, (The) OSU and the like you will be a face-in-the crowd. That is to say, that UK has a market advantage versus those more established schools.

    Bottom-Line: you may well be right, but you need to justify your statements, because it is ENTIRELY (to extend the analogy) that UK is Toyota to (The) OSU’s/Michigan’s General Motors.

    #10 Ohio State & Michigan do not have enough spots open to finish ahead of us. Michigan will likely sign 3 more recruits for a class of 15. OSU is 600 points behind and with scholarship reductions. UK can sign 25 with 20 of those being added to the points system.

    Welcome to a new era

    Brothers & Sisters Blue GOT to understand…….there ain’t no quick fix.

    It WILL take some time.

    Be the fan KENTUCKY Football needs, represent, and in a few, it will come true.

    @10-They said Columbus would never make it and they said the Wright brothers were fools for trying to fly. History shines on men who don’t listen to those who are afraid to take a chance and those who are afraid like you are destined for mediocrity.

    Why does cat’s total is 17’s count, when the there’s is 5-4stars players, and 11-3stars players. That total is 16 players. What I’m I missing. Can someone explain the differences.

    14. No, it will not take time. It will take talent, and that’s what Stoops and company are bringing to UK.
