Stoops is Staying Busy in the State of Ohio




With just over two weeks until National Signing Day, after hosting some official visitors over the weekend and landing some commitments, Coach Stoops and his staff have hit the road.  After last year’s rash of decommitments, they are ensuring this class is solid by paying them a visit.

Pictured above is Stoops, Marrow and Jon Schlarman with OT Luke Fortner last night in Sylvania, Ohio.  After seeing Fortner, Marrow and Stoops joined Andy Buh to see future punter (and backup kicker) Grant McKinnis 50 miles south in Findlay, Ohio.



Marrow and Stoops then went another 110 miles south to Dayton for lunch with defensive back Tobias “Cash” Gilliam (left), defensive lineman Kordell Looney (left center), and linebacker Roland Walder (right).



After the lunch visit, Marrow and Stoops spent their evening watching tight end Justin Rigg’s basketball game just a few miles south of Dayton in Springboro, Ohio.



In the last 48 hours they’ve gone from “Almost-Michigan, Ohio” to Dayton, but their adventures in Ohio are probably only halfway done with three commits to go.

    I hope this pays off by keeping guys in the fold. I guess there may always be last minute losses when you’re dealing with 17-18 year olds. But, these coaches are working hard.

    Why was Buh the only coach to take his shoes off in the McKinnis photo? Seems odd

    Wonder if the UK coaching staff realizes that there are good football players in the other 49 states.
