4-star 2016 QB Austin Kendall commits to Tennessee

The 4-star quarterback from Charlotte North Carolina is considered the 8th best pro-style QB in the 168th overall player in the 2016 class by 247 Sports. His brother, Ryan, is a UK walk-on wide receiver.  Kendall was looking at Kentucky, NC State and Tennessee. Although things looked promising after his visit to UK  in early June, today Kendall took to twitter to make his announcement.

    I am absolutely just opening myself up to the obtuse, boorish trolls, but it’s getting tough seeing all of these recruits commit elsewhere. Before the trolls feast, I am well aware of the dilapidated state of UK football, yet, for instance, Tennessee isn’t far above us and maybe even worse when considering what they had been.

    In the last five years (excluding the Joker debacle), we only lost 17-14 at #2 Alabama, we beat Auburn (and only lost 37-34 to them the year they won the national title); we also beat #1 LSU, Georgia, Tennessee, South Carolina, Florida State, Louisville, Clemson, etc The only SEC teams we haven’t beaten are Alabama (though we’ve only played them three times since beating them in 1997) and Florida. Minus the Joker-era, the recent results haven’t been unimpressive for a school that, until Stoops, outright refused to invest money and resources in the program, which was disgraceful.

    On the one hand, it’s amazing that these recruits are even considering UK at all, before Stoops & Co. they wouldn’t have given us a single thought. The truth from this moment forward is that to persuade more upper-echelon recruits, the results on the field must now occur. It is certainly possible. South Carolina, Florida, LSU, and Miami were once terrible football programs; as were Baylor, Stanford, Oregon and several other top-tier programs. Now, trolls have at it . . .
