Already Committed

Brad Carrico (Notre Dame), Darrian Miller (Kentucky), Nathan Gutekunst (Texas A&M)


The Cats want to sign three or four offensive linemen in the 2011 class. The Cats have one verbal commitment from Darrian Miller and shouldn’t have a problem reaching their goal. From the offer list; Richardson appears to be a long shot and could end up at Tennessee or Alabama. Shell will likely end up at Clemson or SC. Holts appears to be another long shot and Robinson is racking up offers left and right. I hear Mike Summers has been recruiting Smothers for quite some time and the staff really likes his upside. He doesn’t appear close to a decision. Martin grew up a UK fan, but could follow his brother to Notre Dame. Flavin is likely headed toward Big 10 Country while Cook and West are seriously considering UK. Fahrenburg is a Juco player who would be expected to step in and compete instantly. I would be shocked if Posada leaves the sunshine state and LSU seems to be the favorite to land Turner.

Most likely to be a Cat

Darrian Miller’s commitment to Kentucky appears to be solid. I look for Zach West to choose the Cats over Louisville and Penn State this summer. Based on feedback I have been given, it appears Tarik Cook could follow his Stephenson teammates to Lexington. In the end Nick Martin could choose UK over Notre Dame, but will he? If the staff extends an offer to Zack Templin, he will likely become a Cat.

  1. Jake Rigg is a little undersized right now, but add 20 pounds of muscle and he can play Center for anyone in the SEC, MAC, Big Ten. He is very quick and had great leg strength. Very smart in the classroom and on the field. He could also play on the other side of the ball at DE or DT This kid is a diamond in the ruff.
