DL Offers (known)

Aaron Lynch, David Washington, Desmond Floyd, Isiah Norton, Jesse Hayes, Lorenzo Mauldin, Ray Drew, Terrence Coleman, Terry Redden,

DL Watch List

Bobby Newton, Demetri Merritt, Devaughn Hanley, Dontez Tyler, Jimmy Stewart, Joel Hale, Kyreek Brown, Ati Norman-Jean, Ryan Smith, Tanner Crum, Tony Gillespie

Already Committed

Christian Coleman (Kentucky), Clint Tucker (Kentucky), Jamon Brown (Louisville), Jeoffrey Pagan (Florida), Kris Harley (Virginia Tech)


Since our last updated the Cats received a verbal commitment from Christian Coleman. Coleman was teammates with current UK freshman Avery Williamson. The Cats are still pursuing Jamon Brown (and his teammates) who is one of the most sought after recruits in the state. There hasn’t been many updates on the other players who received offers. However, Aaron Lynch and Ray Drew are considered long shots at best for the Cats. Lorenzo Mauldin told me during our interview, he considered committing to the Cats because Tee Martin was very persuasive. The Cats still have a shot to land Desmond Floyd, Isaiah Norton, David Washington and Jesse Hayes.

Most likely to be a Cat

Some people are questioning Clint Tucker’s commitment, but until he decommit’s he’s still a Cat. Christian Coleman is solid and fans should be excited about these two commits. At this point I would say the next commitment could come from Lorenzo Mauldin, David Washington, Desmond Floyd, Isaiah Norton, Terrance Coleman or Jesse Hayes. The Cats are running out of scholarships, but most feel they would like to take another lineman.

  1. UK can never get enough DT prospects, because we very rarely grow SEC capable ones at home...Brice Laughlin might be the best catch of the last class if he turns out as well as the summer reports indicate...
