University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

Back off, Michigan State


One of my favorite commits in Mark Stoops’ 2018 class, wide receiver Shocky Jacques-Louis, announced Thursday afternoon that Michigan State has extended him a scholarship offer.

Jacques-Louis committed to Kentucky almost one month ago over several offers, including one from Louisville, and now one of the Cats’ big competitors on the recruiting trail has thrown its name in the hat for his services.

College football recruiting can be so frustrating.

    To your point, frustrating barely covers it. Commit, decommit, recommit(rarely).
    One reason some fans stay with the “appetizer” menu. They never know when the kitchen is going to catch fire and ruin their entree.

    I’ll take that kind of frustration over the kind where we just don’t bother recruiting the big prospects and just take the best leftovers available, and be content with having a good basketball team. Been there and done that.

    Michigan State had a bad year, last season. Kentucky is in a better league and had a better year.

    Michigan State, FSU, Bama etc trying to steal our commits is far less frustrating than signing guys Toledo, MTSU and Austin Peay used to offer.

    I love seeing offers from top teams come in. It just reinforces what we already know to be true. Our coaches are good at finding talent early and they are good at building strong bonds that enable them to hang onto to kids despite the bi guys coming in. They have an 85% close rate I read on this site I believe. That is upper echelon.
