    Great day for Kentucky football. Welcome aboard Drew. Can’t wait to see the other recruits that Drew helps draw to come play with him at UK. Maybe, Kief, Berrios to throw to and Elam to protect him. I love this kid already.

    Great news for UK. Welcome aboard Drew. Also I just heard that word has leaked out that Wiggins will be announcing sometime between now and Monday that he will be attending UK. Supposedly its all over the Kansas and UNC websites. Has anyone else heard of this?

    Love that they played the fight song…but they should have played the air raid sirens for a QB!

    When you steal a QB from Spurrier…a Heisman QB himself, and notable for his QB pedigree, it’s a big deal.

    Drew Sure had me fooled. After listening to radio shows now for weeks, I thought UK’s chances were getting slimmer by the day. UK Coach Stoops really pulled this upset off over the Ol Ball Coach Spurrier. and you know that is not going to sit very smooth with him. Spurrier hates to lose at anything… So look for USC to try pound on the Cats hard this fall when the Cats make that visit to South Carolina..

    interesting that in football, UK recruits to “be a hero” but in basketball UK recruits to “be a cog”

    I tell u what…. that dang on stoops done uped and done it again, I think its safe to say hes the best coach we have ever had, recruiting is at all time highs and he has yet to lose a game, I know a lot of people liked to give barnhart a tough time, hes made a couple mistakes, but I believe when all said and done the bbn will look back and say he made some of the best hires in the history of this program in fball and bball, and he has raised the level of athletics across the board, all in the face of adversity and criticism, well done sir…Stoooooooooooooooooops

    Oh shit….#13 I am laughing my ass off at that. Totally random but brilliantly funny at the same time. Did anyone else notice how he thanked his high school coach for recruiting him or did I not hear that correctly. Anyway, good luck to you young fella. Now you can put this recruiting circus behind you, get to work over the summer to prepare for a great senior year. It will be a few years but I think we will be seeing some good things from this kid. F off Spurrier
    Stoops up side ya head….I said a Stoops up side ya head

    I hope all you idiots out there that were defending Joker or even worse, playing the race card (like when Tubby left) will go shit in your fist. Now I hope you realize what an incompetent idiot of a head coach he was. Nice guy, Kentucky guy, yes…but clueless.
