It’s been 24 hours. Changes abound in regards to football recruiting. This week is always very exciting. With a couple more key commits Kentucky’s class has a chance to be better than last year’s home run group that saw several true freshmen earn significant playing time.
Unfortunately it looks like the Cats will have to do it without Cody Core. There are various reports across the internet that Core has committed to Ole Miss on his official visit. Nothing has been confirmed at this time but Core reportedly didn’t like Lexington as much as other recruits seem to. He may be better off staying close to home. If UK strikes out with the remaining receivers on their board, they may finally offer Austin Sheehan a scholarship. The only thing keeping Sheehan from being a lock to attend UK is lack of a scholarship.
Linebacker Khalid Henderson was on campus and judging by the picture above, made himself comfortable. It’s down to Kentucky and Ole Miss for Henderson, and despite the Rebs recent success versus the Cats, it looks pretty good for Kentucky here.
Congratulations to DeMicheal Jackson, he signed with Southeast Missouri State this week. Kentucky offered him a preferred walk-on spot and he described it as his “dream school”. Jackson had a difficult decision to make between his dream and a free education. He may have another if Joker Phillips calls with a last-minute scholarship.
