Potential Big Time Football Visitor

marcus

A source tells KSR that 4 star Ohio Safety and Nebraska commit Marcus McWilson is considering visiting Kentucky this weekend. McWilson is a BIG TIME talent who had offers from scores of BCS schools when he originally committed to the Cornhuskers. His status as an Ohio recruit (the state Mark Stoops is focusing directly on) and a Nebraska commit (from where Assistant Vince Marrow came) makes Kentucky an obvious candidate. The source tells KSR that McWilson is considering a visit this weekend and a tour of what UK football may have to offer.

If Stoops can get McWilson on campus and potentially flip him…well that would be quite the play by the new Kentucky coach.

    Why are some recruiting people trying to keep this on the low?

    His twitter page says he is a “committed cornhusker”. Hopefully Stoops can pull this off.

    Is this kid from Cardinal Mooney High School in Ohio? Because if so, isn’t that where all the Stoops brothers went and coached at?

    How in the world is this guy not in the NFL, he looks like he’s 25?

    Regardless if we sign many of these highly rated recruits this year, it is impressive what Stoops is doing in less than 2 months on the job. Imagine the guys that he may get when he has a full year to recruit.

    There is a reason this was quiet..kid didn’t want Neb to know….thx Matt you may have screwed the pooch on this one just so u could be the first to scoop. Smdh

    2-bc the kid (& uk) may not want to publicize it. its in uk’s benefit to keep it on the down low so neb cant recruit against the cats leading up to the visit. and may be better for this kid so neb fans dont hate on him and other schools may start calling him more
    of course, if the kid puts it on twitter that’s different

    Exactly, Stoops hit the ground running. He is clearly elevated UK status in recruiting by getting these guys to come check us out. The difference will be made after 2 yrs with Stoops at the helm. It is not easy climbing out of the bottom of the barrel…but I say Stoops has UK in a bowl second year here and then improves upon that in year 3 and 4.

    BBN media… always eatng their own children. We could learn a thing or two from other SEC schools.

    #10, I totally agree. In Matt Jones hurry to steal more recruiting info, this time he will probably hurt the chances of this even happening. #notverysmart

    Yeah hope publishing this doesn’t hurt the cats’ chances with him.

    I agree, when a kid hasn’t made it public, sometimes it’s just best to keep your mouth shut. He probably won’t come to campus now cuz Nebraska coaches are gonna be all over him now.

    The person that told me this info did not tell me it was a secret. Just because someone else believes it was doesn’t mean it is. If no one wanted this out, it wouldn’t be out…period

    Matt, the site you stole this info from is saying he’ll visit the 25th. You may as well update this entry.

    What site did I steal this info from? Because if they have an exact date, I do not. So tell me so I can go steal this date.

    Not disagreeing, but I’ve seen multiple people saying it is a secret.

    This is more of a reason to love what Stoops is able to do. Guy already seems to be a recruiting dynamo….or at least as much of one as we could have expected.

    @Matt Jones: I quite literally bet you $100 with 100-1 in your favor that he does not come to Kentucky.

    If you dipshits had the sources Matt does, you wouldn’t be on here trolling his posts to criticize his efforts. I’m pretty sure he’s done more for the prosperity of this program than you jackasses.

    Is there not some code of honor among college football coaches? Once a kid comitts should other coaches not back off and honor that decision? Not in favor of this style of recruiting! Win but do it with class.

    Stoops— 3 and out!

    I wish all you Matt Jones haters would go to all these other sites you speak of and stay off of this one. You ruin it for the people who love this site. Go read Steve Scott or who ever you just go away. Hey Matt sorry for some of these aholes keep up the good work. Your site and radio show is one of the best things for UofK sports since I’ve been a fan and guess what all you assh#les its free.

    @ Bald Guy, sometimes it does seem that way. Mostly when Trolls are on site, moderation is at a min. To increase hits, good for economy.

    @25 Hello no. My daughter signed her LOI in December and coaches called her well into April, that’s an Olympic sport, not big time D1 football.

    The reason these other sites call it a “secret” visit is so you and I will pay money to find out what we just did for free.

    Matt loves his haters. They put money in his pocket by coming to his site.

    I don’t think McWilson is the top secret visitor. I think the top secret guy is a name even bigger than McWilson.

    #6 Bo Pelini, The Stoops brothers and Vince Marrow all went there. The Stoops brothers Dad coached there and one of the brothers is still a coach there. The place is a football powerhouse. http://www.foxsportsohio.com/10/04/12/Cardinal-Mooney-alums-are-everywhere/landing.html?blockID=800117

    Man, this kid is a stud and a commitment from him would be huge. #35 – thanks for posting that link. Very good read and I had no idea that Pelini was also an alum.

    Great Job Matt! costing us a big-time football recruit so you could get the scoop.

    Great, from his last twitter remarks sounds like the kid might not be considering taking a visit now. It seems like he wanted this to be on the down low and now that BBN has been blowing up his twitter account he is nervous and overwhelmed. Hope I am wrong.

    WOW he is not visiting now. You GOTTA be joking. Kid was coming to visit, and now he isnt? SMH
