    Kentucky Recruiting 2018

    They have 3 verbals as of now and have a huge recruiting weekend this weekend.
    They are trending very well for 4 kids from Ohio.
    Blue Smith
    Xavier Peters
    Brandon Bates
    Blaine Scott

    I believe the Reigelsperger may be visiting this weekend. Not positive on this. Blue Smith is a teammate of his.

    Ohio State's big recruiting guy just said UK in driver seat for L'Christian Smith from Ohio as well.

    Vince Marrow earns his money...

    OSU is being honest with Smith telling him he's a TE in college. He doesn't want to hear that so they will let him walk.

    What position does he want to play?

    Reigelsperger just committed to UK on Twitter...honestly surprised considering all of the "recruiting" he's been doing with other kids to try to get them to UC and being around UC program so much these past few weeks.

    Honestly where he ends up signing is all that matters. If Hawkins/Vann commit to UC in May, I could see him flipping.

    WR 100%

    Meyer has been honest and told him he projects to TE. 6'6" 240lbs by the time he's on the field is more than likely a TE. But you tell the kid what he wants to hear is you really want him.

    UC getting Hawkins would be the recruiting win of the year.

    Huge win for UK in Ohio, I thought the balance of power was gonna shift.

    Vince Marrow is really really good.
    UK is telling Smith the will play him at WR.
    Glad to see UK tapping into Florida to grab some kids.

    I'm sure he will walk on to the basketball team as well (Smith).

    His shot at the pros is as a TE though. IMO (biased) but he'd maximize his value going to Ohio State and playing tight end. Doesn't have to be Ohio State, but TE is where he will make his money.

    As far as Blue Smith goes...I'm going to guess Riegelsperger committing to UK helps them with him but UC giving him the opportunity to be an impact contributor on both the gridiron and hardwood is what they are trying to sell him on. He plans to visit UC soon for a hoops visit.

    There are going to be a lot of battles between the two programs as long as Marrow is at UK and UC has the current staff that they have under Fickell.

    Easy to get excited over a February commitment but all that matters is who the kid signs with 11 months from now. See Michael Warren as a perfect example. A lot of pressure is put on these kids to commit on their visits.

    He's too big for UC in my opinion. And as far as Smith/Reigelsperger goes, UC has to take one first to get the light on them. I have Smith going to UK unless Ohio State tells him he will get a shot at WR.
