There has been a lot going on with this group of players since our last update. Several recruits made their decision and a few were surprising. The Cats picked up verbal commitments from Daylen Hall and Riyahd Jones. Hall is a speedster and Jones was a surprise. Jones attended UK’s camp and the staff came away impressed. Unfortunately, Flo Hardin picked the Hoosiers over the Cats. Hardin told me the Cats were recruiting him hard, but I guess the opportunity to play with his brother was something he couldn’t pass up. Eilar Hardy picked the Irish over UK and others. Hardy had said publicly he liked the Cats and the SEC, but after a trip to Notre Dame he couldn’t turn down their offer. Also, Darren Waller picked Georgia Tech over UK. His decision could have an effect on Troy Gray’s decision. David Stevenson from Stephenson High in Georgia picked UConn. He didn’t have an offer from UK, but was a name to watch. Coleman from Georgia continues to list the Cats as one of his leaders. The Cats did offer Lamont McMurry from Louisville. Some feel he will play on the offensive side of the ball while other feel he is a candidate to play cornerback at the next level. We’ll consider him an athlete at this point. Jerry Williams has been receiving attention from UK and others, but doesn’t hold an offer yet. I’ve been told Steve Brown really likes Williams potential to play free safety.

Most likely to be a Cat

Justin Coleman, Lamont McMurry, Nigel Malone, Jared Boyd or Jerry Williams. Two of the players I picked last time here chose other schools. Just goes to show you how difficult it is to project where guys will end up. Granted signing day is still a long ways off and things could change. All of the above guys have offers from UK with the exception of Williams.
