Look, I’m not a recruiting guy. Most people who know me know that about me. But here I am yet again writing about another historic Kentucky signing class. Six years ago, early in Mark Stoops’ tenure, we were all buzzing about the class that he and his staff had brought in.
A few months later Stoops would deliver his famous quote to Matt Jones of Kentucky Sports Radio: “We’re just getting started, bro.”
Over a half a decade later, Stoops and his staff are continuing to raise the bar.
I’m older than Justin and it’s also unprecedented and one of the great UK football stories of my lifetime too. The SEC is and has always been a line of scrimmage league and Kentucky is making moves to continue to be able to more that hold their own in that category.
This is surprising to fans and those that follow Kentucky football closely because of the history of the program. Those outside of the program tend to hang on to the series of gut punches that have plagued the Cats over the decades. Mark Stoops does not.
During his press conference, he reiterated what he stated during his introductory press conference when he first got hired. He said that they were going to come in and recruit the best players and improve the level of talent. They definitely meant what they said.
