    I'm interested in seeing how this class of 2020 does for UK.

    Theyíre sitting at 21 signees right now. Torrance Davis is only commit that hasnít signed rumor is that itís academics. With him, Tisdale and Drennen that would only leave 1 more spot. Nobody else Iím aware of that theyíre still going after.

    They will get Davis in.

    It appears Drennen is going to wait until the 2nd session.

    Very odd situation. I really believe he wanted to be at OSU but the feeling wasn’t mutual. Usually, Marrow cleans up on those Ohio kids. It’s almost like he’s not wanting to “settle” for UK, but UK has an insane class. None of it makes sense. Still think there’s at least a 50% chance he’s a Cat.

    UK up to #23 nationally and #9 in the SEC. I think they finish around #20 and #8/SEC.

    My feeling is that had he signed in the early period it would have been good for that cats. With him waiting my feeling is that he is leaning to USC after the official visit he just took there. Regardless, this is an amazing class that the staff has put together whether we get Drennen or not. I do feel like “Be the next Lynn” is a strong pitch though.

    He’s not the next Bowden and there may never be. Bowden is so unique, you will never see a copy of it. They also told Branham he’s the next Bowden, that’s obviously a blanket pitch for any Ohio athlete.

    I had several people tell me Drennen was 100% to UK but he’s always been looking around. Definitely been a head scratcher.

    Heard on the radio today that USC has the worst class in the PAC.

    I’m not saying he would be the next Lynn Bowden, those type of players don’t grow on trees, just that it is a solid pitch for the cats to make to get athletes of Drennen’s caliber. I do agree with you though that they are using that pitch for more than just him.

    And that is the problem for the Cats. Even if they finish in the Top 20 nationally, they are in the bottom third of their conference with recruiting classes. Brutal!

    They will always be it that situation. They can have long term success though, if they can develop players and have a lot of seniors on the field.

    Michael Drennen commits to the Cats! Ranked #210 overall 4-star out of Dublin Ohio. Should come in and commit for playing time in the slot immediately. Great finish to a great class for UK!!

    UK finishes with the #23 class nationally. Pretty darn good. 9th in the SEC but thatís SEC life.
