— Kentucky makes the cut for Ahman Ross. You might have forgotten about Ahman Ross. The 3-star 2017 safety was a one-time Miami commit. Once he removed his pledge, he was arguably Kentucky’s top target because he’s teammates with Mac Jones at The Bolles School. Jones’ decision to flip to Alabama has not made a difference for Ross. He recently told Rivals that Kentucky, Louisville and West Virginia are his leaders. He plans to visit Indiana, Louisville and Kentucky in July.
— Russ Yeast explains his decision to decommit. The son of Craig Yeast, one of the best receivers to ever wear a Kentucky uniform, committed to Kentucky on July 28 of last year, but removed his pledge on June 16. A two-way athlete, Yeast explained why he reopened his recruitment to The Cats Pause.
“I just don’t feel like it is the best situation for me. Some people can’t see why because my parents played sports there and all but in the end I’m the one going to school,” Yeast told The Cats’ Pause.
“Nothing happened between me and the coaching staff that forced me to make my decision nor did any in my family force me to make that decision; unlike what some reporters and people may think. I just need to take some time to back off and fully evaluate some of these other programs and make a proper decision.”
He’s still open to Kentucky but his decision is likely down to Louisville, Iowa, Ole Miss, Auburn, Illinois and Northwestern.

I wouldn’t normally share something like this, but I want you to pay attention to the handle at the end. Who is @Hayesfawcett3? He’s only one of the nation’s preeminent recruiting insiders and he’s just 15 years old. Fawcett creates many of the edits you see when players trim their list or commit via Twitter. Fawcett’s story from The Clarion Ledger is one of the most fascinating articles I’ve read in a long time. I highly recommend investing a few minutes of your time.
— JD’s got a few tricks up his sleeve. I don’t know how anyone can have as many handshakes as JD Harmon, but the senior from Paducah pulls it off. This time he has the mascots in the mix.
