The Crystal Ball is Trending Chris Oats to Kentucky

YouTube Screengrab

With less than a week until National Signing Day, there’s a lot of information flying around Kentucky’s highest-ranked remaining target, Chris Oats.

Yesterday a recruiting analyst told Ben Roberts it looked like Oats was going to commit to Ohio State after taking an official visit this weekend.  Today that same analyst has flipped his Crystal Ball pick from Ohio State to Kentucky. Oats also confirmed he will not take an official visit to Columbus. Now picks are flooding in for “Oats to Kentucky.”

The late Crystal Ball changes confirm what sources have told KSR: Kentucky has been in an excellent position with Oats since his official visit in December.

A four-star linebacker from Mike Edwards’ alma mater, Cincinnati Winton Woods, Oats’ strength is his versatility.  The 6’4″ 220-pund athlete can put on weight and play any of the four linebacker positions.  If he signs with Kentucky on Wednesday he will be the third-highest ranked recruit in the Cats’ 2018 recruiting class.

We’ll find out if the Crystal Ball predictions are true in just six days.

    Think any of this is just guessing based on the linebacker coach we just hired?

    No it was already basically a two horse race between UK and OSU. His not taking the visit all but ensures Lexington is the destination

    Finally Stoops beat osu for a quality recruit. This should guarantee another trip to Tennessee for another bowl game, woot woot.

      It is less Stoops beating Ohio State to a recruit and more Ohio State’s recruiting class is already full to bursting.

      Whatever makes you feel better. The offer was still on the table and his official was there to take.

      Hah, another trip to Tennessee. I believe we went to Jacksonville before that for the same bowl game U of Hell went to this year. As I recall, they were beaten by a team with no coach, and no starting QB.
      And , Ill be watching when they meet the big boys Sept 1. Roll Tide, Roll.

    The crystal ball is the biggest bunch of babified bullshit I have ever run across on these boards. All it is is a bunch of guessing and everyone in this country can do that. Dont know why so many think it is fun or worth following. Jeez. Let it go. Thank you.

      Don’t worry wildcatdon. Most of the “predictions” now require a 247sports VIP account to view to analysts prediction. I hate 247 for doing that. Took a lot of fun out of their website.

      So basically, “I hate this stuff so you have to hate it too.”

      p.s.-“I hate it so much I clicked on the article, read it and left a comment letting all of you know how far above this type of thing I am.”

    I think it’s kinda fun! Adds a little gridiron atmosphere to basketball season!

    Me yesterday: “These analysts don’t know anything you or I don’t. They’re just guessing.”

    Me today: “You can lock it in because these analysts have incredible access to the kids and the programs and their predictions might as well be in stone.”
