University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible. moves Grant McKinniss to 4-star, third in country

Kentucky picked up a verbal commitment in June from Class of 2016 Ohio punter Grant Mckinniss after attending a camp on campus a week before. At the time he was a two-star recruit.

I guess this goes with Stoops’ philosophy to get players early and before other schools discover them because his his stock has skyrocketed over the summer, especially on

Scout has upgraded Mckinniss twice this month, making the recruit a 4-star player. As one of three 4-star punters, that brings the punter to third in his position, behind UCLA commit Bailey Raborn and OSU commit Drue Chrisman.

247sports currently has him as a 3-star in its composite ranking and Rivals has him as a 2-star still. I’m assuming they just hate punters.

Looks like Kentucky is set for a little while on its punting crew.

    Thank God, Ohio State’s punter is ranked higher. They won’t take this guy out from under from us.

      Not at all. I’m sure we will beat UL for a trip to glorious Birmingham for the prestigious BBVA Compass Bowl.

    Are those clouds real? If so, the camp directors should probably gotten them off the field. I had two friends die in or near Lexington as kids. Lightning is not something to trifle with.
