Two big football recruiting notes to start your day



Kentucky’s win over Louisville could have a huge impact on recruiting, some of which we’re already starting to see. Last night, Vince Marrow visited four-star athlete Lynn Bowden in Youngstown, Ohio, which is, of course, Marrow and Mark Stoops’ hometown. Bowden has offers from Kentucky and major programs in the Big 10 like Michigan State, Penn State, and Michigan, but we’re hearing that his visit with Marrow went VERY well last night. Even better, he’ll be on Kentucky’s campus this weekend for an official visit. Here are his highlights:



Also of note: UK is trying to flip three-star wide receiver Jacquez Jones, who is currently committed to Tennessee. Darin Hinshaw visited Jones on Monday, and the Florida native tells the Herald-Leader he’ll still consider Kentucky right up until Signing Day in February. Not only that,┬áhe’ll take an official visit to Lexington January 14, and Knoxville the following weekend.

Could Stoops steal a player from Butch? We’ll see, but in the meantime, enjoy his highlights:

Later this week, Nick will have a big preview of all of the recruits in town for what’s shaping up to be a massive football recruiting weekend.

    In regards to Bowden: what high school kid has a throat tattoo and 2 full sleeve tattoos? Is it just me or does that seem crazy for an 18 year old (and really, I feel like a throat tat is crazy for anyone, regardless of age)?

      Kids are into crazy stuff these days. If he’ll play well, go to class, and stay out of trouble we shouldn’t really complain about his sense of style.

    As Kentucky’s recruiting rises, Butch Jones had three decommitments yesterday alone.

    If I’m a recruit, I see UK as a program fast on the rise and UT as a program that is somewhere between plateaued and falling. Jones’ staff proved that even with a ton of 5* recruits they still can’t win the East and Stoops proved that with a bunch of 3* and 4* guys they can be in the hunt until the last couple of weeks of the season. UK’s staff is doing more with less, UT’s is doing less with more.

    Two Words: Jake Johnson. Pulaski County WR should be Mr. Football and a high priority UK target. He’s as good or better than any WR UK has with the exception of maybe Badet. Similar player. His football IQ is 2nd to none & has great “football speed.”
