Timmons: Stoops “yelled” when he gave him the news


Photo by @thomasbeisner

If you think you were excited when Ryan Timmons announced he was coming to UK, imagine being Mark Stoops. When speaking to media after his press conference, Timmons said that when he told Stoops the news earlier today, Stoops “yelled” and he could also hear Neal Brown screaming in the background as well.

First thing he’s going to do now that he’s a UK commit? Call and text Jason Hatcher, who told him he is down to Kentucky and USC.

Corey Nichols attended the press conference and will be by soon with a behind-the-scenes look. Until then, ceeeelebrate good times, come on!

    Good recruits attract other good recruits, pretty soon “Only” good recruits are coming to your program. That is the way to start the cycle and build on it to become a powerhouse.

    Since we have no soul we can only show emotion by screaming

    Grandma is a FAN! Glad Ryan made her so happy, like he did the rest of us.

    Stoops and Brown gettin’ it done. Proving every day how wrong Matt Jones was about the potential of this program. Great thing about Jones.. he’s wrong with such CONFIDENCE!

    Anyone have a link to the video of his commitment?

    This also validates the strategy of the fans who forced Mitch’s hand. If people had continued to “support the program” by coming to games – we’d be looking at another year of Joker ball. Sometimes you have to burn the house down to get something big done. Too bad Mitch had to wait for that, but at least we are where we are.

    Has there been a bigger statement recruit than Hatcher in the last 20 years?

    Ya… but he hasn’t learned his lesson. He still cuts people off he doesn’t agree with – even people who clearly know what they are talking about. His ego knows no bounds.

    #10, I would say the Lamar Dawson recruitment a few years ago spoke pretty well to Jokers ability. Kid was a Kentucky fan and we hired his head coach to be his position coach… didn’t get it done. The was a pretty big statement. Hoping its different this time around.

    Yes Lachlan is the Skip Bayless of Kentucky. He’s paid to stir up controversy, its the only way to get people to call into his god awful time slot on 84 WHAS.

    10. I would say Couch and Dennis Johnson were big statement recruits. We all know what Couch did, Johnson however could never get over the hump it seems and I dont know if it was coaching or what happend with him.

    We the haters of good kids due here by make a B!tch of ourselves on twitter by saying the kid wasn’t good enough to come to Little Bird Louis.

    18. 3:00 tommorrow for Hatcher. Many analysts have brought up a good point to why he would hold a presser considering he had already commited to USC however, I guess its just because his decision has been in limbo for the past month.
