2014 West Virginia OL commit considering flipping to Kentucky?

With weeks left until Signing Day, here’s a name you’ll want to keep an eye on: Josh Krok.  Krok is a 6’8″, 300 lbs. three-star offensive tackle from Niles, Ohio, which is right next to Youngstown, the hometown of Mark Stoops and Vince Marrow.

Krok, considered the 49th best offensive tackle in the country, is currently committed to West Virginia, but will visit Kentucky this weekend. If the Cats can get Krok on campus (something the West Virginia staff is clearly not happy about), there’s a possibility he could flip his commitment and fill a big need on the O-Line in the 2014 class.

Come on down and enjoy the Bluegrass, Josh.

    I love how these guys recruit. I’ve always seen the big boys try and flip recruits and it always seemed we never even tried. Even if we don’t him I like to see that we’re making the effort.

    This would be a great get! Vince Marrow is the real deal.

    Come on down, Big Fella. The water’s nice (and drinkable) in KY.

    This guy is a man-child! Someone that is 6’8″ and weighs 300 lbs, still has room for additional mass.

    This guy lives in Ohio and Morgantown is about 150 miles outside of the impacted water area. Whats your point? Plus in all the time I have spent in Lexington, I don’t think I have ever drank a single glass of water…

      How did you hydrate?

      You might have a really big hydration problem. Lexington water is fine, I can assure you. Maybe dehydration is the reason for your apparent lack of a sense of humor?

    I wonder if he can catch the football! at 6’8″ he would make a hell of a tight end. We know he can block but with his build and that weight 300LBS he would be hard to bring down for your average DB.

    What ever happened to Marcelys Jones? Thought he was going to flip and bring his buddy Smith with him? I hope this newest rumor pans out. This kid will be a good addition to our Cats.

      That’s right. We had approximately six new recruits that were going to commit to UK at the Army All-American game. Drew Barker and his “close friend” Matt Elam had them all lined up as a package deal!

    Let see: Morgantown, WV vs Lexington, KY, the women in Morgantown vs Lexington, things to do in Morgantown vs Lexington, playing in the Big 12 vs SEC. Isn’t Lex kinda a no brainier?



    • Big 12 vs. SEC is the no brainer

      There are plenty of fine looking women at WVU. I would venture to say there are more of them at UK, but you really can’t go wrong with any of the ladies at a state school south of the Mason Dixon line. The biggest selling point to him I would think would be the SEC over the Big 12, which truly is a no brainer.



  12. Been there done that

    There is a hell of a lot more to do in Morgantown on a Friday night than Lexington trust me…and normally that “lot more to do” renders “the women in Morgantown vs. Lexington” argument moot.

    who in the hell would want to play at UK? Doesn’t like winning games or something?

    I wonder if UK has just as good a chance flipping him as they did at all those other guys…
    Oh wait, nevermind

    I am from niles and work out with this kid everyday. He is incredibly soft for his size and not very strong at all. There is a reason that with his size he is so lowly rated…….not very good at this point.

      He is a beast. He benches close to 400 lbs., squats over 500 lbs., Rivals has him 23rd best football player in state of Ohio and 40th best tackle in entire country. He is also rated a 5.7 which is high rating. He is right now 6-9 315. I also know him personally! Stop hating loser! Let’s see your game tape! When he is playing on Sundays and you are working at Wal-Mart make sure you tell all your co-workers bout how soft he was.

    Hey, come on down, big fella and be in on the beginning of something awesome. And yes, the SEC is a no-brainer. Anyone who says differently, knows zilch! The BBN is waiting for you.+

    What the heck is holding in his left hand? Looks like he has a bomb strapped to his body and he’s holding a detination device.

    UKkathy is right on the money this is the start of something awesome with UK football. It’s funny what the fan base can do when they get fed up enough .
