A Significant Update in Michael Drennen’s Recruitment

Michael Drennen II is the most talented offensive skill player still on Kentucky’s big board. Just a week away from the beginning of the Early Signing Period, things are looking better and better for the Big Blue.

Last weekend Drennen officially visited USC, only his second official visit, following a visit to Kentucky for the Florida game. The four-star all-purpose back planned on taking one more official visit this weekend, but that trip to Florida has been canceled.

The shifty athlete from Dublin, Oh. told Rivals’ Josh Helmholdt that he will host Kentucky’s staff for an in-home visit Wednesday night and that he no longer plans on waiting until February to sign, confirming news we passed along Monday night.

Before the man named Donut spoke to Rivals, who ranks him as the No. 205 player in the 2020 class, he had a post-visit conversation with Bill Greene of 247 Sports. Along with the visit talk, he had nice things to say about Mark Stoops’ program.

“Kentucky is definitely still in the mix for me ,” he told 247. “They were the first school to offer back when I was in the eighth grade and I have been there so many times already.”

Greene is one of eight experts that has logged a pick for UK in the 247 Crystal Ball, giving the Wildcats 73 percent of the selections. In Rivals’ FutureCast predictions, 78 percent of the picks are for Kentucky. This morning I spoke to one of the analysts, Rivals’ Dave Lackford, on Kentucky Roll Call.

I expect Drennen to Kentucky,” he said. “I feel like Drennen’s been to Kentucky for a minute now. I don’t know what the hold up is with that. Maybe he’s just having fun. Maybe he’s just making sure that’s where he wants to go. I don’t know. The weekend that Izayah Cummings and Jordan Watkins committed, I actually expected Drennen to commit (to UK) then and that was before the season started.”

Nobody knows the kids in the area better than Lackford, so when he speaks, I listen. He also discussed in detail the recruitments of Tyler Baron, Octavious Oxendine and Vito Tisdale. You’ll want to hear it all by listening in to today’s podcast beginning at the 59:53 minute-mark.

    When you post about a possible recruit, you may want to note that your comment section is having issues and the love they normally see to recruits is due to posting issues from app. 🙁 I would hate a recruit back-off cause they just didn’t see the love on KSR.

      I’d be surprised if the recruits even know what KSR is. Why would they?

      I’ve tried countless times dark soul. It always pops up an error code. Wish they would fix this on the app so we can comment from there.

    We need Delray Cat to say Drennan’s not coming. He’s got that reverse jinx power!
