As we all know, to build a successful and competitive program, recruiting has to be relentless and never-ending. That’s just what we have now at Kentucky. Not that previous coaching staffs didn’t recruit, they just couldn’t recruit the way that Coach Stoops and staff does.
That being said, offers are constantly going out to new prospects and I wanted to introduce a few of those guys to you.
Let’s start with Jonathan Greenard a 6’ 4” 220 lb. weakside defensive end from Hiram, Georgia. Jonathan is reporting an offer from Kentucky. He has yet to be ranked but if this coaching staff is recruiting him, then you know there is something there that they like. This coaching staff knows how to develop defensive ends and I’m sure Greenard knows that. Jonathan has a total of 6 offers, most from smaller schools but two stand out to him right now and are his favorites; Louisville and Kentucky. Yes, this is going to be a bluegrass battle as Jonathan wants to make a decision soon. I think Kentucky has a good chance of landing him if he indeed has a committable offer. Check out his highlights below.
Standing at 6’ 1” and 190 lbs., safety Jameel Cook has seen his recruitment heat up over the past month. Following the Kentucky offer, the Missouri City, Texas native picked up others from Arizona St., Utah, Illinois and Indiana. He already had offers from Maryland and Missouri. It has been reported that Maryland and Kentucky are his two favorites and he plans on visiting both during the summer. With Coach Stoop’s expertise in developing defensive backs, that could prove to be an advantage for the Cats.
