It’ll be difficult to remember all of these individuals, because there are so many offers out there, but hopefully this will give you a better idea of how the football staff is recruiting.  If you’re trying to count exactly how many they extend this offseason, good luck.  But if you wanna know one person, know Tycen Anderson’s name.

Tycen Anderson–  The 6’2″ 2017 cornerback from Toledo has committed to his hometown school, but many believe that won’t last for long. One person who believes he will flip is another Toledo Catholic School kid, Kentucky commit Mike Warren.

Anderson spoke with Justin Rowland after receiving his offer.

“I was very excited when they offered me,” Anderson told Cats Illustrated late Wednesday. “I just know how big of a deal it was and (was) just grateful that I had the opportunity to show them what I could do.

“They just said they liked my size and how I move on the field and then they offered me before I went to start track practice,” he added.

Watch his highlights.

Alec Long– The three-star 2017 safety from Jackson, Tn. also has offers from Memphis and Mississippi State.  Highlights

Isaiah Gibson— The Springfield, Ohio defensive tackle stands at 6’4″ 265 pounds and will be a Junior next fall.  Highlights

Blaine Scott— The 2018 offensive lineman from Portsmouth, Oh. is 6’5″ 300 pounds.  He already has 15 offers but Ohio State has yet to come calling.  Highlights

Jamir Thomas–  The 6’1″ 215-pound inside linebacker from Massillon, Oh. just finished his freshman year of high school, but he already held offers from Michigan State, Michigan and Iowa State before Kentucky extended an offer of their own.  Highlights

Ge’Mon Eaford–  Much like Thomas, Eaford already has plenty of offers after his freshman year.  The difference — Eaford’s has more offers, and ones from programs with the best pedigree.  UK was his 11th offer, following Alabama, North Carolina, Auburn, Georgia, LSU, Tennessee and more.  Effort is a pass-rushing weak-side defensive end from Deerfield, Fl.  Watch him do work.

Ft. Lauderdale’s Finest

St. Thomas Aquinas is one of the best football programs in America every year.  As the kids say, “real recognize real.”  Kentucky offered three players from Aquinas in the last week, two sophomores-to-be and one that will be a senior.

  • Lashawn Paulino-Bell—  The elder statesman of the group, UK’s offer is the 17th for the three-star weak-side defensive end.  Most of his offers aren’t the cream of the crop, but Georgia and Miss. State are on his list.   Highlights
  • Anthony Solomon—  Even though he has only played one year of high school, Alabama is already at the top of his list.  The outside linebacker also has looks from Auburn, Louisville and Florida State.  Highlights
  • Daniel Carter—  The exceptional athlete played running back and outside linebacker as a freshman.  Before Kentucky got to him, Ohio State, Michigan, Georgia and Miss. State offered.  Highlights

But wait, THERE’S MORE!

Bryce Oliver—  From Dillard High School in Ft. Laudy, Oliver is a 6’3″ wide receiver that will be a junior next fall.  Highlights

Alonzo Clark— UK is the second offer for the athlete that plays wide receiver and quarterback for Ft. Lauderdale High School.  Highlights

Malik Occiur—  Kentucky is the first offer for strong safety in the class of 2018.  Highlights

Nesta Silvera—  The 2018 defensive tackle is from just outside of Ft. Lauderdale, playing for Plantation’s powerhouse American Heritage.  He’s received a handful of other offers, most notably Miss. State.  Highlights

Josh Ali—  A three-star wide receiver at The University School in Ft. Lauderdale, Ali has 15 offers, including one from the Dirty Birds of UofL.  Highlights

Keidron Smith—  From just up the road at Oxbridge Academy in West Palm Beach, Fl., the only other offer the 2018 cornerback holds is from FAU.  Highlights

Dominique Linton—  On the Gulf side of Florida in Naples, 2017 wide receiver/cornerback’s offer from UK is his first.  Highlights

2018 Quarterbacks

Cade Fortin—  The 2018 pro-style quarterback from Suwanee, Georgia has six offers on the the table: UK, UofL, Rutgers, Oklahoma State, Cal and Iowa.  Highlights

Jarren Williams—  Fortin is a pocket-passer from North Gwinnett High School; Williams is a dual-threat quarterback from Central Gwinnett High School.  Williams also has an offer from Louisville, but the big competition in this race is from Florida State.  Highlights

Connor Noland—  The pro-style quarterback from Arkansas has the Razorbacks at the top of his list, alongside UCLA and Stanford.  Highlights
