On Tuesday I wrote about the Kentucky Wildcats football recruiting and who I thought would be next from the defensive side of the ball to commit for the 2015 class. Today I will talk about two guys I think will, or at least should, commit soon. Those two guys are offensive linemen George Brown and George Asafo-Adjei. With five offensive linemen already verbally committed, how many more spots are available? In my opinion, Kentucky will only take one or two more. Keep in mind this is only my opinion and any rankings I give are from Rivals.com.
George Brown (6’ 6” 261 lb.) is a highly sought after offensive tackle from Cincinnati (Ohio) Winton Woods. George is rated as a 5.9 4-star and is ranked as the 13th best at his position and the 127th best over-all athlete in the country. George currently has over 40 offers but plans on cutting that list down to 15 or 20 by mid-June. He still remains a high priority for Kentucky but what happens if another lineman commits to the Cats? My opinion is that he should commit soon, but he won’t. He will however, have an offer all the way up to National Signing Day regardless of who commits. If that offer is available, I think he is a Cat. Kentucky has a little inside help as George’s cousin, Mike Edwards was a signee for Kentucky in the 2014 class. Check out George’s video below.
Goerge Asafo-Adjei (6’ 4” 310 lb.) is an offensive guard that has seen his interest go up as the year has progressed. Most believed he was a UK lean but he now says that it is a three team race between Kentucky, Louisville and West Virginia. Also, last Wednesday Florida made an offer that may be appealing to him. George is a former teammate of Kentucky commits Kyle Meadows and Mikel Horton. He had expressed an interest in being a future blocker for Horton. George is rated as a 5.6 3-star and ranked as the 35th best offensive guard in the country. He also said he would like to cut his list down in June and that he wouldn’t be making a decision until after his senior year of football. George is another one that I think should make a commitment soon to Kentucky if he wants to be there. My opinion is that he is a take by Kentucky right now but I believe he waits too long and he misses the opportunity.
So, for these guys I believe Kentucky would take them both right now but later in the year, only one will get a scholly. It’s in their hands.
