The hat was on the table, but Erick Smith chooses Ohio State

erick smith picks osu

The #11 safety in the country was expected to choose the Ohio State, but rumors earlier this week indicated that UK was making some headway in his recruitment.  The blue hat made the table, even causing his hand to linger for awhile, before he chose the Buckeyes.

We didn’t get the safety, but Drew Barker has played impressively. Seriously, change the channel right now, the guy has had two scoring drives in his only 2 possessions (the only 2 TDs of the game). I’ll have a complete update at the half.

    Marcelys Jones was also giving the OSU sign after the announcement.

    Did anyone else think it’s awesome that we were contenders with those 4 other hats? it stinks that we have to wait on Elam, but he may still end up in blue. If anyone can do it, it’ll be Stoops.

    I knew his answer when I saw Ted Ginn Sr. standing there with him. But just see that blue hat on the table shows that Stoops has the cats in these players heads.

    Drew Barkervhas played great today? He looks better by far than any of our existing quarterbacks. I think he has to play next year. I’m excited about this young man after seeing him play and I can understand why Brown and Stoops are so excited.

    Barker has led his team to 2 TDs…and has looked brilliant in his crisp and accurate passes.
    Who are these miscreants who say he has only looked mediocre?…;…U.of L. trolls I suppose.
    Better be worrying about WHO is going to replace Bridgewater. U.of L. will only be mediocre in the ACC next year.

    Looks like more than Bridgewater is leaving U.L. I hope Barker has some good receivers to throw to!! Barker has looked very impressive. Just wish we could have gotten some of the other talent on the field to join him.
