Today on KSR: More Good Football Recruiting News?

Mark Stoops’ good weekend continued through Monday. Could it extend all the way to Tuesday?

His weekend started with Josh Allen’s top ten selection in the NFL Draft. Upon Stoops’ return to Lexington, he hosted a handful of elite recruits for official visits. Those visits resulted in not one, but two commitments. Four-star offensive lineman John Young was the first to pull the trigger. A day after Young’s decision, three-star cornerback Andru Phillips joined the Big Blue Nation. Phillips’ Monday night commitment happened just moments after a four-star defensive end included UK in his list of finalists.

Kentucky has quickly acquired a significant amount of recruiting momentum. Can the Cats turn it into more commitments? Beau Allen is awfully close to Young and Phillips, and he should be nearing a decision after officially visiting Washington State and UK. Stoops said the dice are staying hot. If Allen decides to roll them…look out.

Guess Who’s Back?

Just days after they were drafted, Josh Allen and Lonnie Johnson are already back to work in Lexington.

Two Terrific New Podcasts

Aaron Torres is back with a vengeance, while Kentucky Thrones Radio did something a little different to recap The Long Night. T.J. Walker and I talked about the terrific Game of Thrones episode live over the Kentuckiana airwaves. If you missed it, or the extra ten minutes at the end, check it out here. If you need more, we’ll be back for another episode tomorrow night.

The Jeopardy Guy (almost) Lost

James Holzhauer’s improbable Jeopardy streak nearly came to an end last night. Adam Levin came within $18 of knocking off the man who had already won $1.275 million in 17 games. Levin’s $53,999 is the most ever earned by somebody who did not win the episode. Levin’s secret? Scouting. He was able to see Holzhauer operate before their face-off. The Boston Globe caught up with the man who gave Holzhauer a run for his money.

Two down, one to go

The picture above was taken just two weeks ago following the Blue/White Game.

The trio returned to Lexington for official visits over the weekend. Sunday night John Young announced his commitment to Kentucky. Andru Phillips followed suit today. When will it be Beau Allen’s turn?

Young told KSR this morning, “I am gonna bug that dude until he blocks my number. I’m going to be on him until he commits.” Young is not alone.

Allen is eyeing a decision in the coming weeks. Right now the dice are pretty hot. Will Allen be ready to roll them with his friends? The clock is ticking.
