The First of the 2014 Football Recruiting Class Arrives on Campus

Drew Barker: “It’s a good look.”

With the Spring semester just a few days away, the first of Mark Stoops’ second recruiting class are getting settled into their new homes.  Throughout the day, Drew Barker, T.V. Williams, Thaddeus Snodgrass, Mikel Horton, and Dorian Hendrix were arriving on campus for the foreseeable future.  Along with the five new freshmen, JUCO transfers Cory Johnson and A.J. Stamps were also unpacking into their dorms.  What does that mean?  A head start on the rest of the competition.  All seven will be eligible to participate in winter conditioning with Kentucky’s High Performance Coordinator Erik Korem, as well as take part in spring practices.  Surprisingly, Twitter was pretty quiet today.  I expected a lot of tweets from the incoming class, unfortunately, that wasn’t the case.  Maybe that means they’re having such a great time during their first day in Lexington that they haven’t felt the need to tweet.  Either that or they’ve been busy preparing for next season already.  One player had good things to say upon arrival, and that was wide receiver T.V. Williams.

 

These seven new Wildcats are expected to come in and make a huge impact for Kentucky next season.  As evident last year, freshmen can have a major impact on the field.  Players like Jojo Kemp, Ryan Timmons, Jeff Badet, and Alex Montgomery provided much needed energy & big plays on offense, despite their lack of experience.  This coming season won’t be any different.  For more on each of the seven newcomers’ expected impact this season, check out this article from Chris Fisher of 247sports.com.  It’s a great read to get you prepared for things to come in Kentucky football.  If you haven’t created an account at 247sports.com by now, you really should take up on their 30-day free trial offer.

    I am confused on how high school seniors arrived on campus to live already when they still have (high) school thru May. ???

    How do you get a 30-day free trial? Everything I see on the site is only for a 7-day free trial.

    I hope these players live up to the KSR and UK Athletic Department Hype Machine. They rave about how great this past year’s Freshman were, but only one – Jon Toth – made the 26-man SEC All-Freshman team. Everybody else in this league has good Freshmen, too, and Stoops and the rest of the coaches are going to have to coach them up to make them competitive.
