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

Damien Harris is the No. 4 player in high school football, according to Rivals.com

@Damien_D1Harris

Rivals.com released its Rivals 250 for the 2015 football recruiting class today and Damien Harris finds himself as the highest-ranked Kentucky prospect ever at No. 4 overall. That’s not the No. 4 running back. That’s No. 4 OVERALL. He is Rivals’ fourth-best player in the entire class. Wow.

Fellow in-state star and UK commit Eli Brown came in at No. 133, down 23 spots since the last rankings.

C.J. Conrad and Luke Heirs are the only two other commits in the top 250 at No. 195 and 247, respectively.

Cats.

    This recruit is probably best in state recruit since Brian Brohm. He would be a big get. But if we don’t have at least a decent Offensive line he wont come here.

    Strange how all three UK verbal commits ranked in the top 250 dropped 20-25 spots since the previous ranking… after they verballed to UK. I wonder if they’d all committed to Ohio State or Notre Dame if they would moved up? Which brings up the obvious question-

    How does a player’s ranking change so drastically in the off-season? It’s not like basketball where they’re observed in top-notch AAU competition.

    Anybody else ever wonder how much impact the incoming university and connections have on these recruit rankings? Isn’t it weird that when some recruits commit to certain schools their rankings increase, but other schools see a subsequent drop in rankings after commits? Maybe I’m just paranoid (eh, that’s not really a “maybe”), but it seems too coincidental for their to be no connection.

    This would have been a great headline yesterday when they actually released the Rivals 100, story today would need to be about the UK recruits in the Rivals 250. Newspapers probably beat you on this headline.

    Why are people worried about the offense line? If he commits, and I believe he will, some other really good O-line recruits will want to come block for him and protect Drew Barker. That will happen, I promise hahaha
