BMveGEACMAEcmum.jpg-large

Landon Young is UK’s first 2016 commitment (and one of the youngest I ever remember for the school) and here he is with his future coach. Landon is 6’7″, 250 pounds, a nationally ranked shot put and discus athlete and was second in the State Wrestling Tournament in the Heavyweight division as a Freshman. Not bad young man….

    Football recruiting =/= Basketball recruiting. You recruit younger in football. UK fans are going to have to get use to this if we are going to start competing with the big boys in the SEC.

    I think if there is a reason for Kentucky kids to come to UK, they will abandon Uvull in droves. There is nothing appealing about UVEL for these kids except when UK football was like watching paint dry, UL was winning and it was close to home. Now that UK football has some spark, this will be the norm. Joker! Well named.

    It almost looks like Bilbo and Gandolf with the size disparity. Damn that kid is big.

    He’s big and has that perfect body type to grow into a hellacious offensive tackle. The part that really got me was he’s a very good wrestler so you know he’s athletic for his heighth too.

    Not sure what position Stoops has in mind for him. But wrestlers have a great conception of keeping your mass low to the ground and moving bodies. Glad to have him.

    Different position but damn the kid looks like a young Gronk from the Patriots.

    Let’s just hope UK is smart enough to pay up and keep Stoops & Co until then. Stoops is likely having offers after year one. Step up, UK. He’s going to need Strong money.

    That Stoops guy has big paws. And big arms. That high schooler will remember that hand shake for a long while. Stay healthy and eat well, Landon Young. You’ll look good in Blue. Congratulations.

    Landon is one super great young man. He is humble, kind, and sincere. His Mom and Dad are just super people. UK will be blessed to have him. So excited for you Landon! Go Big Blue!! BBN be sure to keep watching him through his high school career…most likely you will see multiple state titles in wrestling and in track!
