Jewell Ratliff to UK


It is being reported, from the New Orleans Times Picayune) that Jewell Ratliff of McDonogh 35 HS (the same HS as UK QB Recruit Theltus Cobbins) in NewOrleans has signed with UK. Jewell is a 6 ft 2 in Linebacker with 4.6 speed who originally committed to University of Louisiana Lafayette. Ratliff was not originally cleared by the NCAA Clearinghouse, so he did not sign his letter of intent. He then signed with Kentucky in Mid-March over Arkansas, East Carolina, ULL, and Texas Tech. The article is dated May 12th, but almost noone has know of his commitment until today.

  3. I have a feeling his recruitment isn't over yet. Hopefully he takes the Raymond Sanders approach and doesn't even talk to other schools who come calling. All indications suggest this kid is special!

  9. If he has "signed" with UK then why hasnt UK issued a news release about it? Calipari just did that on Friday after Jones & Vargas' paperwork was officially received at UK. So if he is signed and UK has his paperwork why continue to keep it a secret?

  11. This kid is amazing I've seen him play personally. As a kid playing park ball he was always better than everyone else. I watched this kid grow up playing football from park to high school ball, he is going to be a wonderful addition to the UK program. His family is blessed with talent, older brother Ray is playing collegiality at Alabama A&M University also his brother Arthur is a tremendous talent but he just could never get himself together. Best of luck to Jewell Ratliff and his family God Bless. Go Wildcats...

  14. I know Bill was trying to contact Ratliff for an interview. The guy sounds like a beast! The Cats could use him at LB/FB/TE or a variety of positions. I'm excited to watch him play this fall!
