UK Fans of the Day Want Some Evening Recruiting Notes

noble fans of the day


– Coach Cal spoke with Mark Stoops’ seven recruits before today’s game, telling them that Lexington does not usually have weather this messy,“It’s like San Diego year-round.”  He also gave a subtle shout out to Matt Elam during his post-game interview with Tom Leach, “We got one we’re still trying to figure out I guess.”

–  #BBN certainly did their best job showing Matt Elam love today in Rupp Arena.  If the “WE WANT ELAM” chants were not enough, Elam Tweeted that as soon as he arrived to Rupp Arena, “Ten Photos in Five Seconds!! #BBN”

–  It’s worth noting a little irony in the recruiting world.  After 3-star safety TJ Harrell took official visits to Louisville and UK, he traveled to Athens for a visit today.  Harrell’s list also includes Florida State and Michigan State.

–  The Cats gave an offer this week to 2016 cornerback Malek Young.  The 5’11 175 lb. speedster from Coconut Creek, FL has received tons of early attention from big schools like LSU, Arkansas, Florida, and Georgia, but the Cats are his first big-school offer.  Giving some early attention can do nothing but help the Cats odds down the road.  They currently hold one commitment from the Class of 2016, Lafeyette’s OT Landon Young.

–  In-state superstar linebacker Eli Brown wasn’t in attendance for today’s game, but Stoops still made some serious moves for potentially the best Kentucky prospect in the Class of 2015.   Today they sent him a GIANT poster to remind him of the #BBN before he goes to sleep each night.  This poster may have a huge impact (more so than the 234534534958 letters they’ve sent some kids), with Brown Tweeting earlier:

“I am ready to get to UK now with all this love they showing💯💯💯”

Brown is ranked as the #10 outside linebacker in the Class of 2015.  The Cats will have to fight off Vandy, Ohio State, WKU, and Joker Phillips’ Florida Gators (his favorite team as a kid) for the linebacker’s services.


The massive poster does a good job covering the Florida orange and blue. (@32_brown)

    Kentucky is pathetic. The university is pathetic, you hillbillies are pathetic and the entire state is pathetic. Make no mistake about it, Kentucky is a very dumb state. But unlike other dumb states, there’s no real dilution of the stupid when it comes to who to root for in the state of Kentucky. There are no pro sports franchises in the state siphoning off a few idiots, and Louisville is a substantial minority fan base when it comes to rooting interest in the state. If you root for Louisville you probably have a GED.

    If you root for Kentucky you probably failed the GED. TWICE.

      Your must live a very sad, sad life. I actually feel pity for people that are compelled to act out in such a demented way.

      Congrats on being named the keynote speaker at your graduation from Strayer University, which I hear is the bomb of on-line schools. BTW, was there a big crowd present there?

    I was able to get a interview with Darius Fullwood, a 4* defensive end out of the Washington DC area. Kentucky is very high on his list, go check it out

      Since he has an Ohio State offer, do we still have a shot at him? I know we are getting good kids from Big 10 schools, but have we beaten Ohio State out for any that are outside of the state of Kentucky?

    Looks as if UK is just a 32 C cup away from the flood gates opening on the recruiting scene.
