As Kindsey posted earlier, Kentucky got a huge football recruit today. Gunnar Hoak, out of Dublin, Ohio, is a three star pro-style QB who has a cannon of an arm. The 6’4″ 190 lb high school junior is rated the 53 best pro-style QB in the nation right now by 247 Sports, and threw for 2,584 yards and 30 TDs with only 3 interceptions this past year, completing 65% of his passes. He’s ranked by Rivals as #32 overall prospect in Ohio. Hoak is the 16th recruit for Stoops & Co. for 2016 and the first quarterback commitment Kentucky has gotten since Drew Barker.

Justin Rowland said on twitter that he is exactly what Kentucky needs:  

Hoak told 247 that he is excited to come play for the Cats, “It’s a great situation. With them only having two quarterbacks on the roster and they didn’t take a guy in the 2015 class.”

He took unofficial visits to Indiana, Bowling Green, Toledo, Pitt, Duke, and West Virginia. He also had offers from Bowling Green, Buffalo, Cincy, Kent St., and Toledo.

His arm totally lives up to his name. Watch him work:

    Live just an hour South of Columbus so will have to go watch this kid play a few times this year. Looks like he is comfy in the pocket and makes throws look pretty easy.

    This kid looks good. Put up big stats against very good competition. Anyone know why he is rated so low? Seems very underrated.

      I was thinking the same thing… only has offers from Bowling Green, Buffalo, Cincy, Kent St., and Toledo… Maybe it was just early, but is there a downside we aren’t seeing ?

    Maybe we should sign some of his receivers. I didn’t see any drops.

    The next couple of years have some tremendous prospects at pro style QB coming up. Ohio has several in the top 50, depending on the rankings you select. It might be a good find, and the real test is the signing day, if he will still be around and Michigan, Michigan State, Penn State, etc., do not come calling. We are like the rest of the MAC schools, and other non traditionals, we got to get them early and hang on for dear life.

    Another important thing, which helps him look good, excellent line play. The guy had time to throw the ball and let receivers get open down field.
