Freaking LSU, man. Minutes after four-star CB Jay Ward picked the Tigers over the Cats, four-star WR Devonta Lee did the same. He even faked the crowd out by picking up a Kentucky hat before dropping it and picking up the LSU one. C’mon, man.

Getting Lee out of Louisiana was a long shot, but the fact that Kentucky stayed in the picture as long as they did is something, right?

    Those fake hat picks are SO Bush League. What are they really trying to prove?! It’s a slap in the face to the coaches and recruiters that spent time recruiting you.

    Eh… We didn’t really expect to get this kid. Ward hurts worse. Ah well, I guess Lee wasn’t concerned with playing Wide out – as LSU will play him on defense (after a couple years).

      Yeah, that sucks for Lee. Maybe we’ll see him as a transfer next year or two.

    Oh, well. 2 near misses on 4stars that grew up huge LSU fans… First staff to put us on those tables, so it’s a good sign.

      We signed 4, 4 star players with this class, in 2014 we signed 9, 4 stars…we didn’t capitalize on the big season and the bowl win…..Arkansas who had a terrible season signed 12 4 stars for this class…..this year can be described as a swing and a miss.

      I’ve seen stats that prove that great seasons doesn’t show up in recruiting for 2yrs. It says that most classes are already done for the next year at the end of that season so it will be the class after that when you see the reward.

      You might be a prima donna for typing like that. What is the point of that, just curious?

      It’s meant as sarcasm. I’m making fun of people like Kentuckbbnfan01 who whine this was

      thanks for the clarification. I had no idea that was sarcasm font. But I’m too lazy to use all that!

  6. I guess Coach O’s gruff Cajun voice is the sweet sound of football success to some of these guys.

  7. Any word on Jammie Robinson? I know they all say he’s going to S. Carolina.

    He was a long shot at best, so this isn’t really a loss. We weren’t exactly counting on Lee coming here, but it was worth a shot to try to get him. All in all, a pretty darn good 2019 recruiting class.

    I’ll still take 2-3 stars and coach’m up, like last year’s squad, good enough for me.

    Maybe he wasn’t going to qualify academically. Makes sense he picked LSU then, he will fit right in there.

    Staying in the picture means absolutely nothing if you can’t finish the job

    Can we chill with the classless thing about the hats? Seriously. We’ve had guys sign with us in basketball do that before and end in our favor, but it’s funny then, right? We go overboard about some of the dumbest s**t.

    • Sorry, I calls em likes I sees em. However, I admit I chuckled a bit when Trey Lyles trolled UL the day before he signed with us, and I shouldn’t have. So, yes, if we don’t like it done to us we shouldn’t laugh if someone does it to others when they sign with us.
