Yahtzee! UK lands commitment from star tight end

Kentucky picked up a commitment from one of the best tight ends in 2017 today when Charles Reeves Jr. announced he is the newest member of the Wildcats’ class.

Ranked tenth at his position in the Top247, Reeves Jr. becomes the sixth commitment and the fourth from Ohio. He comes from Stuebenville, one of the all-time winningest teams in the country.

Reeves Jr. made the announcement on Twitter:

He also had offers from Michigan, Purdue and Wisconsin, and heavy interest from Ohio State.

Welcome aboard.

    While I love getting all of these talented players, I’m hoping they’re good kids on top of it. Character counts, and we’re not looking to become Louisville men around here.

      It seems Stoops has that in mind while recruiting, seems to be getting good kids. Cal clearly get it

      What does that mean. Are you saying this kid should go to UL? I’m confused. Is there an underlying message here?

      I don’t know Reeves, Yeast, or Jones from any other recruits, so have no opinion on them personally nor do I mean to say anything against them specifically. I do know Steubenville High School Football was making headlines for all the wrong reasons not that long ago though. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steubenville_High_School_rape_case). Hopefully these three young men are better people than that.

      Stoops and his team haven’t given me reason to doubt their ability to assess talent or character yet, so I’m remaining optimistic. Their current team and the culture that surrounded it not that long ago just gives me pause for concern.

      Exactly, Drew Barker has been a model citizen, Boomie hasn’t thrown any tantrums at all, and of course, that 4-star DE from Louisville who got dismissed and expelled for rape? Well, that never happened either.

      Just keep thinking good thoughts, BBN. The only ones who are guilty are the ones that get caught (enough).

      Keeps Pitino after Sypher fiasco.
      Keeps Hurtt after show-cause.
      Rehires Petrino.
      OK’s Devonte Fields’ recruitment.
      Hookers.

      But UK is dirty?

      Louisville:

      Keeps Hurtt after show-cause.
      Rehires Petrino after Atlanta and Arkansas embarrassments.
      OK’s Devonte Fields/Michael Dyer etc. recruitment.
      Hookers for underage recruits, on campus, provided by staff.

      But UK is dirty?

      Barker et al were being idiot freshmen because they were, in fact, idiot freshmen. The difference is that they had football jerseys with their names on them, otherwise you’d have seen the story on WKYT and scoffed at the morons before going on with your life never thinking of them again.

    Oh and I forgot…who was the kid that left because he was accused of rape…..and no I’m not a Louisville fan….but you people kill me with this character thing….like UK sits on holy ground

    Clutchcargo–I do realize the charges were dropped, but he was still dismissed from the Univeristy…My point was it seems that some people can’t be happy we just picked up a great commitment from a player. It seems that they always want to talk about a guy’s personality or character.

    In this instance how about a way to go Stoops! Or Yahtzee! Why does it seem that people expect these guys to live a life of sainthood. Don’t get me wrong I don’t want bad publicity around the program either but dang give it a break.

    All I’m saying is things can happen like the two examples I pointed out….deal with it when it happens and move on…..but this constant talk about character when you don’t even know a guy is unwarranted.

      2:11 pm October 22, 2015 Permalink

      Your examples are dumb, so next time you want to make a point how about backing it up with things that make sense. Dorian hasn’t done anything to show he has bad character, which is what your post implies. You think running around playing with air soft guns makes someone a bad person? And then yeah, the kid was accused of rape and nothing came of it..so again, nothing to show he has bad character. Idiot.

    While I’m ecstatic we got a great player we have a great TE right now in Conrad. He’s another Jacob Tamme but Dawson refuses to give the kid a chance. He can catch everything.then tack on 5 more yards by dragging three defenders!



    • J-Dub421
      2:15 pm October 22, 2015 Permalink

      We need Conrad for blocking because our running backs are terrible at it. That is why Conrad doesn’t get more targets. Also, this kid is class of 2017. We’ll have to replace Conrad at some point.



    • WUT IS FOOTBAL
      2:19 pm October 22, 2015 Permalink

      You do realize the primary responsibility of Conrad is to block, right? When the O-line needs help, you turn to the TE. Go watch some tape of the New England v. Dallas game two weeks ago. Patriot’s line was getting killed so they used Gronk almost exclusively as a blocker and what do you know, it worked!

      No reason to be critical. We are 4-2 (haven’t been able to say that many times in our history) and are improving. Oh and those two losses? By a combined 8 points. Relax.

    First and foremost we are NOT Louisville we are KENTUCKY! Holy ground or not wish this Kid the best and move on!! Stay Classy!!

    J Maxey….yeah it is abit frustrating he (Conrad) does get the ball much but a TE job is not only receiving the ball, blocking is HUGE in that position and he IS getting that done!! Be patient he’ll start getting the ball more & more.

    Conrad is probably transferring after this year, with the Offensive play calling and terrible qb play we have with golddie locks, I don’t blame him, I’d be out the door. Luckily for this kid, Towles will be gone by the time he gets here.



    • Why are you here?

      With a 2-4 football team and an ongoing investigation into a cheating basketball program utilizing hookers to hang a couple velcro banners I can’t believe tards are still hanging around. You are 1-7 against us even though you cheat. And yet you still talk crap?

      that is the dumbest thing i have read today. Conrad is not going to transfer, he’s starting as a freshman. Why would he transfer?

      Johnny Bonehead, Conrad won’t leave due to your ignorant reasons, but possibly because of negative fans, if you are one, like you.

      The problem with this list is that the reporter who compiled it relied on what the media reports. As everyone knows, Tom Jurich controls the Louisville media, so they don’t report or investigate negative occurrences for U of L atheletes. It also doesn’t include all the players on U of L’s current roster who were arrested and kicked out of other programs (like Michael Dyer for instance). These are the reasons Louisville isn’t much higher on this list.

    UK fans think that their players are the walking embodiment of God himself. You have to understand that all coaches recruit from the same areas. Ridge Wilson arrest for drug trafficking Jason Hatcher in trouble for weed. If these kids went to Lville they would be deemed thugs by UK standards. We took a player that was found innocent of domestic violence but you guys still said he was a thug but when Tubman was accused and let off of rape it was ok. last time I checked RAPE> Domestic violence. Oh yea I’ll leave this here…http://fanbuzz.rare.us/story/top-25-college-football-teams-by-arrests-over-the-past-five-years-yields-a-surprising-no-1/…UK is #12 with 18 arrests.

    • Difference Is...
      3:26 pm October 22, 2015 Permalink

      The difference is that you run the trashiest program in college athletics. Lloyd Tubman is no longer on the team and was kicked out of UK for being accused and proven innocent. You take kids with convictions and hire coaches who have issues with motorcycles, dimly lit restaurants, and fidelity.Oh and by the way, have you seen the news lately?

      Side note: no one under the age of 60 is calling kids thugs for smoking weed. Good try though.
