University Of Kentucky Football: Catching Up With Recruits

UK commit Shyquawn Pullium, visited Kentucky for the first time 2 weeks ago when the Cats played Florida at Commonwealth Stadium. Pullium committed to UK even though he hadn’t visited before. He had built a strong relationship with Coach Derrick Ansley (his position coach at UK) and Coach Chad Scott and that apparently was enough to get his pledge to Kentucky.  He spent most of his time at UK with Nate Willis and Melvin Lewis (both who are Junior College transfers) and he said they made him feel at home. Shyquawn did say that he was still going to visit Cincinnati and Arizona St., both who are still recruiting him but he said that it wouldn’t make a difference because he will be a Kentucky Wildcat. Shyquawn Plays with fellow commit Ryan Flannigan at Blinn C.C.

Speaking of Blinn C.C., they defeated Kilgore J.C. this past weekend. Ryan Flannigan did not play due to a minor injury but Shyquawn Pullium had a tackle for Blinn. Meanwhile Michael Mathis (another Kentucky commit) had three tackles, an interception and a pass breakup for Kilgore.

 

One thing that is obvious, this 2014 recruiting class is very tight. They even have a twitter account together. If you enjoy twitter and you would like to keep up with them, follow @UK2014Class.

Two guys that are communicating on a weekly basis is T.V. Williams and Thad Snodrass. Both player’s teams are struggling this year and it has affected their ability to catch balls. Williams plays for McKinny High School in Texas and has had limited touches due to a young and inexperienced team. Williams has had 18 receptions for 350 yards and six touchdowns through the first four games of the year.

“We’ve got some younger quarterbacks and we’re a younger team so I’ve struggled to get the ball,” Williams said this past week. “It’s definitely a little frustrating but I’m making the most of it. I’m keeping in touch with Thad (Snodgrass) and he’s kind of in the same situation with his team struggling. Sometimes we’ll catch up after games and just let it out.”

 

It’s been widely known that Denzel Ware had missed the past  few games with an elbow injury. Ware was told by doctors last week that he could play in their next game and he took advantage of it. He had a really good game in his comeback by having six tackles, including a sack, and a forced fumble. His Crestview team ended a four game losing steak by defeating Leon, 49 – 21.
