Damien Harris and Marcus Lewis were high on the priority list for Mark Stoops and his staff during their official visits this weekend, and so far, all of the reports we’ve heard have been positive, including this one from 247 Sports’ Steve Wiltfong. Wiltfong says he’s hearing that the two recruits UK impressed the most this weekend were Harris, the nation’s top running back, and Lewis, the nation’s 6th best safety:
With Harris, hearing that the Wildcats continue to feel good about where they stand with the nation’s top-ranked running back. There is some concern about him going down to the Under Armour game and clicking with all the Alabama recruits, but right now I’d still lean towards Harris signing with Kentucky. However, make no mistake, the Crimson Tide are very much in the picture. He will announce his plans on Jan. 9.
Optimism in Lexington is real high with Lewis following his official. He hit it off with Harris and many of the guys on campus. Miami is the biggest threat here with an official scheduled for January.
It sounds like Mark Stoops may need a new Yahtzee set for Christmas.
