The “Blue Lights” Camp at Commonwealth Stadium kicks off today for high school juniors and seniors, and that means a lot of big-time talent will be in town with Coach Mark Stoops and the rest of the coaching staff. The players will be polishing up skills, while the staff adds some last minute additions to the 2014 class while working on building for the future.
Take a look as what some of the biggest names are saying on Twitter.

Matt Elam could be Mark Stoops’ first five-star commit at Kentucky, and this visit will surely have a big impact. If Twitter is any indication of the recruiting process, Tennessee is making the strongest push for his services along with the Cats. He will announce his choice in January at the Army All-American Bowl.
CAN NOT WAIT to get down to Lexington w/ my boys today!!

This four-star wide receiver from North Carolina is uncommitted to a school, but his top-five schools in no particular order are Kentucky, Tennessee, South Carolina, Clemson, and West Virginia.

Originally a Florida State commit, Denzel Ware committed to Kentucky, backed out and strongly considered Florida, then recommitted to Kentucky and defensive coordinator DJ Eliot, promising that was his final choice. He’s a solid defensive end addition – a position Mark Stoops loves.
