Although it seemed that the Kentucky Wildcats Football recruiting class for 2014 had been set, there may still be some changes to come.  Kentucky head coach Mark Stoops and his staff have made a late push to recruit Lloyd Tubman.

Lloyd Tubman is a defensive end from Louisville, Kentucky.  He is 6’4″, weighs 216 pounds, and is rated by ESPN as a three-star prospect.  He is also ranked by ESPN as the 5th best player in the state and as the 64th best player at his position in the nation.

Tubman originally committed to Western Kentucky, but then later decommitted and pledged to Vanderbilt.  Then, when head coach James Franklin left Vanderbilt for Penn State, Tubman followed suit.  Although he is currently committed to Penn State, he is still considering Kentucky, Louisville, and Nebraska as national signing day approaches.

Tubman was supposed to take an official visit to Nebraska last weekend, however, he cancelled the trip.  He has never visited Nebraska, which probably makes them the least likely option for him.  Tubman has been in contact with Louisville since Bobby Petrino took over as head coach.

Kentucky already has commitments from 28 players for the Class of 2014, which is the number of players Mark Stoops vowed to sign for that class.  If Tubman were to join Kentucky’s Class of 2014, another player would have to be left out.

Tubman is scheduled to announce his final college decision this Wednesday at 9 a.m.
