Morning after Signing Day notes

| 2 Comments | No TrackBacks
So Wednesday was something, huh?

Mark Stoops first Kentucky recruiting class came together on Signing Day and the 22-player group gave UK its highest-rated ever according to at No. 27 nationally. Stoops and his staff might not be done either. At his press conference on Wednesday afternoon, Stoops was asked whether the 2013 class could still grow in the coming weeks. He succinctly answered, "Yes."

Besides, Stoops and company are already working on next year's class and getting ready to work more closely with his current players:

Ryan Suckow will have another Signing Day story later on Thursday, but make sure to check out the links below to see the features and videos we already have on Cat Scratches:

A few other notes to pass on:

  • In another sign of the resurgence under Stoops, Dan Wetzel of Yahoo! Sports used UK as the lede for his story about the dominance of Southeastern Conference in recruiting. Check it out.
  • The list of invitees to the NFL Combine was released around midnight on Wednesday (for some reason) and offensive lineman Larry Warford will represent UK in Indianapolis. According to most outlets, he is among the top three or four guards in the draft class and is a likely second-round pick. Here's his player page.
  • Voting is still open in the Infinite Coaches' Charity Challenge. John Calipari has closed the gap in the South Region to one percentage point with Missouri's Frank Haith still leading. Vote for Coach Cal here.
  • If you missed it elsewhere, UK will wear special Nike Hyper Elite uniforms for a game next Saturday at Tennessee. Kentucky is one of 12 programs to wear the uniforms. See what they look like here.
  • Finally, Baseball America released its 2013 SEC preview. UK is picked to finish third in the SEC East and make the NCAA Tournament, while sophomore centerfielder Austin Cousino is the preseason Player of the Year.

I've followed this class pretty closely and am as hyped as everyone else. But, I can't seem to figure out who the 9 defensive players are that Stoops have said we signed. By my count we signed 6 defensive players, so who do they project as D that are currently listed as O positions?
