The Football Staff is Hitting the Road
Mark Stoops hasn’t stopped working since the season ended with an unfortunate Louisville loss. Their first priority this week: keeping the 2016 class committed. The staff has split up to see as many people as possible. Yesterday QB Gunnar Hoak, WR Dakotah Holtzclaw and CB Davonte Robinson received in-home visits. Tonight, Kash Daniel hosted D.J. Eliot and Coach Stoops, Jimmy Brumbaugh visited Ohio defensive tackle commit Kordell Looney, and Derrick Ansley visited Georgia cornerback commit Jordan Griffin.
Expect to see more happy recruits posting pictures with their future coaches throughout the week.
Mac Jones is a Finalist for The Opening
The 2017 quarterback commit from Florida is on the short-list of candidates for the nation’s most prestigious summer recruiting camp. Jones would follow in the footsteps of Patrick Towles and Drew Barker, Elite 11/The Opening alums to take their talents to Kentucky, but he’d be the first from another state to do so. Luckily his passing game is much better than his golf game.

Kentucky Commits Receive All-Ohio Honors
It’s one of the best states for high school football in America, and they’ve received the highest honors. Remember, Division I in Ohio is the equivalent to 6A in Kentucky.
- Benny Snell 1st team Running Back
- Grant McKinnis 1st team Kicker
- Tobias Gilliam 1st team Defensive Back and Southwest Ohio Defensive Player of the Year
- Michael Warren 1st team Running Back
- Roland Walder 1st team Linebacker
Coach Cal went to Christian County over the Weekend
After Sacha Killeya-Jones watched the Cats beat Boston in Lexington last week, Calipari returned the favor by watching SKJ’s team play at the Christian County Zip Zone Classic. Unfortunately, Cal missed SKJ’s best performance. Against one of the best team’s in the nation, Huntington Prep, the UK signee dropped 28 points on 10-10 free throw shooting and grabbed 17 rebounds. He hasn’t been the most heralded player Calipari has brought in for 2016 recruiting class, but he’s playing like the kind of players we’re used to seeing around here – elite.
Malik Monk is Even Better Than You Thought
Somebody let Malik Monk into his zone over the weekend. His poor opponents tried to stop him, but it was an epic failure. Monk dropped a cool 46 points. Even when they forced him to pick up his dribble, he threw it off the backboard to himself for a dunk. Just, wow. WOW.
