UK Offers Former 2016 Michigan Commit

3-star defensive Rashad Weaver became the second long-time Michigan commit to re-open his recruitment over the last two weeks.  After being committed for almost seven months, Jim Harbaugh and his staff ceased their communication with Weaver, leaving the writing on the wall.

The strong-side defensive end from Ft. Lauderdale, Fl. fits the mold of exactly what Mark Stoops is looking for late in the recruiting season.  He is an athlete that played both sides of the ball, with a frame (6’5″ 255 lbs.) that can bulk up significantly.

After receiving his first SEC offer, 2017 QB commit Mac Jones was the first person to tell him to Bleed Blue.

Kentucky needs a player like Weaver to help the depleted defensive line.  Judging by Stoops’ competition — Temple, Illinois, USF — the Cats have a realistic shot to add Weaver to the 2016 class.

    I had this happen to me heading into college, and it’s friggin’ heartbreaking. Come to UK and be a stud kid, we won’t balk on you.

    I like that he has enough confidence in his game and enough self-respect that he wouldn’t accept being a backup plan. Stand tall, kid, wherever you end up (and I hope it’s here)!
