YAHTZEE! 2019 three-star DB Jalen Geiger commits to KENTUCKY



This morning, Kentucky four-star commitment Keontra Smith flipped his commitment to Miami (FL), and Vince Marrow wasn’t too happy about it.

“We only want guys that want to be here. Trust me BBN we are going to get it done,” he tweeted.

Just a few hours later, the Cats found their replacement.

Three-star cornerback Jalen Geiger has committed to KENTUCKY!

Geiger, a 6-foot-1 corner out of Columbia, SC, chose Kentucky over Cincinnati, Rutgers, and Boston College, among others.

The newest Wildcat visited Lexington back in April, and earned a scholarship from Kentucky soon thereafter.

Watch his highlights below:

    Three Stars I got it but, if we are going to compete, where are all the 5-Stars being recruited by UK Staff!!! Someone has got to break the ice and start bringing in 4 & 5 Stars…PERIOD! You just can’t compete for in the SEC without them!!! Need the TOP DOGs soon!

      I think we’ve been competing the past 2 years. Plus we have 2 projected first-rounders who were 2 and 4-star prospects. 5-stars doesn’t equal success.

      Double Amen! YAHTZEE! is a game played with five (5) dice, not three. But if you might come to UK, our KSR writers will give you a YAHTZEE! anyway … no stars required. We play football in the SEC (prettty sure) and if 3 star is all we get, it makes ‘competing’ really tough. We realy should save the YAHTZEE!’s for the 5-star players…or…what the heck…everybody gets a trophy!!

      We do need 4 and 5 stars but they will come once we start winning more games in the SEC.

      We certainly have some clueless people posting on this thread. At least 18 current UK Wildcat football players were 4 star on either Rivals or ESPN, and one other Wildcat was a 5 star. So those of you who are complaining might want to read up on our roster. Also, UK’s coaching staff currently has about 70 scholarship offers out to 4- or 5-star prospects in the 2019 class.

      So Rembrandt, the the great and powerful Oz behind the digital curtain that thinks he knows everything: When are we going to sign a class of 4 and 5 Stars? UT signed four and five stars under a failing program last couple years! We haven’t had a TRUE 5-Star Recruit in UK football EVER! Get out of here kid…

      My goodness. Some of the “fans” on here just don’t get it. The amount of stars next to their name is almost as meaningless as a verbal commitment these days. There are countless examples of 2 star players being first round draft picks just as there is countless examples of 5 star players who have become complete busts. Heck, the #1 player of the class of 2015 went UNDRAFTED in recent NFL Draft. Generally speaking, is a 4 star better than a 3 star? Probably, but there are many factors into how a player develops like work ethic and coaching. So I believe in the right situations, most 3 stars can become starters on just about every SEC team.

    Can we stop saying Yahtzee every time we get a verbal commitment? Verbal commitments obviously don’t mean anything.

    And immediately flips when S. Car offers. Dear lord just say this kid committed and move on. When early signing day rolls around instead of signatures say we received 5 yahtzees and maintained 11 commitments. On NSD you can then say yahtzee how ever many times you need to to make up the class.

      YAHTZEE! is a games…played with FIVE (5) dice, not 4, not 3, not 2. not 1. KSR obviously loves the word but it means absoluted NOTHING on this site. They really should ‘shift can it’ until the UofK actually SIGNS a 5-star player. hint hint

      Stars mean absolutely nothing. Benny snell-3 star, Randall Cobb-2star Bud Dupree-2star. Coach marrow knows what he’s doing.

      Josh Allen 2-star, CJ Conrad 3-star Stephen Johnson basically unranked. The list goes on and on a lot of fans just don’t want to see it. It’s like the NFL Draft 4-5 stars are awesome just like 1st rounders, but the meat of your roster is made up with 3 stars just like the meat of your roster is made up of day 3 NFL draft picks. They don’t look sexy and they don’t get attention but being able to find good players in the 3 star range builds a program

    • IAmTheDanger

      OK, so we’ve been doing this for years upon years….are we still building that program….because we are currently ranked # 73 in the country and haven’t sniffed the top 25 in years….how’s that building coming??

      Ranked 73 by WHOM? And by what standard? Cripes you freakin whiners!! Wtf is wrong with you?

      Rankings don’t mean crap. Star ratings don’t mean squat. Study some freaking football or shut up. Look at NFL rosters and see if kids from outside of the major conferences make it! They DO and not in small numbers.

      We’re they 5 or 4 stars? NO! Don’t be an IDIOT FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE!!! Stop buying into every article you read from people that only look at the perennially best recruiting programs.

      Or keep reading that crap as if it’s gospel and be a moron the rest of your life.

    Man can we get those 3 stars. Can’t compete with that talent level.

      See my post above. 18 current Wildcats were 4 stars and one was a 5 star. So, before whining, study up and get some facts.

      Rembrandt, these idiots don’t realize we’ve already been competing with the talent level we have.

      Good mix of talent regardless of star ratings. I trust the evals of these coaches.

    It looks like he’s underrated to me . He will play above his rating . He has really good ball skill. Excellent gunner according to the tape. This kid will be a star here say what you will but revisit these comments next winter then let’s talk again .

    I don’t put a lot of stock in how many stars a kid has. As we all know Benny and Josh Allen were 3 stars, they are pretty good and will play at the next level. This 3 star guy could be Benny, while the 4 star who decommited could be Matt Elam. Let’s wait until they get here and see things shake out. I’ll take as many 3 star Benny & Josh Allen as we can get.

    I hate admitting this ; the diss appointment is our own fault for valuing any verbal commitment from players in 2018 and beyond.

      These 2 just hit their terribul(I hate you Barkley stop picking us when you’re on a bad streak) 2s. I care less avout them saying yahtzee and more about them saying it before Stoops play calling ruins the season. With a better coach we could have already won a bowl or more(both were winnable), had an east title(only his first year and last year was there a dominant east team and St was a monster last year), and possibly our best when record in half these kids life spans(Louisville has been beatable every year). Not running the clock a bit against Miss st. Not throwing a 12th man on the field to basically tackle the open receiver as soon as the play starts and taking a penalty. Not going for tds when on the goal line against multiple teams who were clearly hot. This is why some of the best don’t just us and the ones that have fliped to teams that they chose us over as the season progresses (see the rebuilt Miami). They believe in what the staff is selling but you can’t keep customers as a donut shop if there’s a 25% shot at getting a stale one.

    Lexington Herald…”1- Star Recruit from Planet Mars signs with UK…!” KSR response…YHATZEE!!!!!! Come on man! We need to seek out and find the four and fives TIME NOW. The Money our University spent on Mark Stoops and Company should be producing an SEC championship TIME NOW! He needs to get the right recruiters in HOUSE and start blazing the trail that NOONE in the SEC can compete with as for as recruiting. I am sick of UK football and three stars, our instate 5-Stars going to Ala-stinking-Bama’. We got dudes throwing trash cans in games, fighting, spitting on the crowds, fightin’ with staff and coaches!!! Get these thugs off the team and get some professionals that wanna play at UK PERIOD!!!!

    Every team can’t be all 5 stars but they got to have some to compete in the SEC and we are not getting them yet. Our program has got to start getting 5 star players if we are going to move up in this conference. But am thankful for every recruit that wants to be here. And the ones that flip well feed em fish heads

    Lads and Gents,
    It’s simple Mathematics…BBALL team has multiple 5-Stars and no Championships every year! I got it, appreciate every young man on the team! I understand teaching coaching and growing. With that said, we need game changers…play makers…5-Star QB’s #1, Receivers #2, etc. or a 10 more Benny Snells. Am I the only dude on the planet seeing this!?
