Saturday Evening Football Recruiting Notes for the KSR Dog of the Day


Meet Blue. This sweet pup found a new home the day Kentucky defeated Florida in The Swamp. What a great game. After rewatching once today, I might just have to go and watch it again later tonight. I have some exciting recruiting news to share, but first, how freaking cute is this?

UK Hosts Alabama Commit

Earlier this week UK made a significant impression on a Florida commit during a visit to Lexington. How do you one-up that? Show an Alabama commitment a good time.

De’Rickey Wright unofficially visited UK during last week’s camps. A four-star prospect, 247 ranks Wright as the No. 25 outside linebacker in America. Hailing from Gadsden, Alabama, Wright’s name is on a long list of incredibly talented players brought to UK for unofficial visits by Jon Sumrall.

Good Company

The Cats are finalists for one of the best linebackers in the South. Another Jon Sumrall recruit, Desmond Tisdol is the eighth-ranked inside linebacker and No. 133 overall player in America, according to 247 Sports. The Rochelle, Georgia native announced Friday he’ll choose between UK, Florida, Auburn, South Carolina and Georgia Tech.

The Ramblin’ Wreck has raised quite a bit of heck on the recruiting trail since Geoff Collins became the head coach. With 15 commitments, the Yellow Jackets have the No. 15 class in America. He’s not the only new head coach making some noise on the recruiting front.

Louisville is Making Moves

Scott Satterfield is taking every commitment he can get. Scott’s Tots are now rolling 13 deep after the Cards picked up ten players since May 30. Now considered a Top 25 recruiting class by 247 Sports, the reaction from Louisville fans is cute. Just let them be excited. That ranking will drop dramatically, and well behind Kentucky, once the bigger fish make their decisions. Besides, they could use some positive football news. We all know it will be impossible to find this fall.

The Frederick Douglass Crew is on the Road

A few weeks after visiting Clemson, Frederick Douglass’ two talented rising juniors made a trip to the Buckeye State. Offensive guard Jager Burton and wide receiver Dekel Crowdus camped at Ohio State. The first and second-ranked 2021 prospects in the state of Kentucky, Burton had a scholarship offer prior to the camp. Crowdus picked one up on his way out of town.

Quarterbacks are on the Hot Seat

If Tim Tebow can win an NFL Playoff game, this robot can get to a Super Bowl.

    The dirtybirds aren’t fooling anyone, there average player rating is 84. And change…. ours is 89 and change… and our lowest rated recruit is in the middle of their average recruit, (that was one of the questions I had about that staff, if they could up they’re recruiting to this level, as joker Philips learned, not every 2-3star can be a Randall Cobb/Josh Allen/Snell, you gotta step it up) and he should be ATLEAST a high 3 to a 4-star. Beau Allen, Jutahn McClain and Torrance Davis should all be 4-star players, hell, McClain had offers from everybody. I really want Rogers teammate, DB from up in Michigan, Enzo Jennings, him and Makari Paige, both 4-stars and ELITE players. Lamar Goods visited Florida, glad he’s still committed but would be interested to know how it went. I think he’s underrated as a 4-star player, should be higher. I think we get Vito Tisdale, Izayah Cummings, I want Oxendine but I think he’s set on leaving the state, but if he stays, I think we get him over louisville. Jahiem Thomas, Chris Mayo, Kalil Branham, Enzo Jennings and Deandre Buford… after that don’t care… I think our class finishes top-20, could be top-10/13 if we were able to take a full class.

    Oh, not to mention, just like the dirtybirds, tech has 14 3 star recruits and 1 4 star, again, they can’t all be diamonds in the rough, and there aren’t too many staff’s that can develope like ours can. Especially running the triple option…

    I hate to admit it but Satterfield may actually turn out to be a good evaluator. His team has been one of the quickest to adjust to moving up to a FBS conference and then get to bowl games and not lose one. It will take a few years but he may develop these guys into something decent. By then our ability to recruit even better players and develop them alone will be enough to bury them but he may do well in the ACC.
