While you were enjoying Monday Night Football, Kentucky’s football coaches were enjoying face time with some of their top commits.
It was quite a party in Lexington. Five coaches — Darin Hinshaw, Vince Marrow, Mark Stoops, Eddie Gran and Michael Smith — made the short trip to the Allens’ residence to talk to future UK quarterback Beau Allen. He wasn’t the only UK commit in the building. A day after he was named 6A player of the year in Kentucky, wide receiver Izayah Cummings made the trip from Louisville in his UK gear.
The timing was significant… for jokesters. Allen’s mother shared the picture on Twitter 15 minutes before cornerback commit Dru Phillips shared a picture from his in-home visit with Mark Stoops. Not gonna lie, I’m jealous I could not be the first to make the time-traveler joke. It’s the type of low-hanging fruit that makes for a perfect dad-joke.

Steve Clinkscale, Dean Hood and Brad White accompanied Stoops on the visit to South Carolina. The best part of the picture? Dru’s father, Carlos, has his old Power-K helmet featured prominently in the family entertainment center.
While that all unfolded, John Schlarman hung out with one of his future line of scrimmage stars, John Young. Eddie Gran traveled with Schlarman to Louisville to enjoy a meal and some football.

Kentucky’s coaches will be back on the road tonight ahead of a big in-home visit Wednesday night. I’ll have more on that later.
