Stoops is Trying to Steal Another 2018 Recruit from Jim Harbaugh

Two weeks ago Mark Stoops received a commitment from best player from Michigan, offensive guard Marquan McCall, stealing a prospect from right under Jim Harbaugh’s nose.  Now the Kentucky head coach is in a good position to land a four-star linebacker from Jacksonville, Florida that Michigan has been recruiting for over a year.

Last night former Maryland commit Eriq Gilyard released his top six schools: Kentucky, Michigan, Maryland, Virginia Tech, N.C. State and UCF.  The Top 35 linebacker in the 2018 class plays for a perennial Florida powerhouse and is the son of a former Auburn defensive back.  Gilyard told Gridiron Now he likes what he’s hearing from Kentucky.

“I feel I can go there and be a big-time playmaker,” he said. “I think I would have a chance to make an impact early in my career.  I have a good vibe with the coaches and I feel something at Kentucky is big for me. I felt like they needed to be in my top six.”

Gilyard plans on visiting all six finalists this summer before making a decision in the fall.  I’m sure Stoops would love to put one in Harbaugh’s earhole, just like Gilyard frequently does to his opponents.

    I’m loving all this awesome recruiting. If we get some good results on the field this year, our recruiting class should be awesome.

    Michigan fans act like they are Alabama all of a sudden. Yet they haven’t won a title since 1997.
