The Kentucky Wildcats need to recruit well to be able to succeed in SEC football, that much is for sure. In the past they have not been able to keep up with some of the higher power programs in the conference.
Head coach Mark Stoops has according to Scout.com made the recruitment of the Ohio area a high priority in his tenure as coach. They recently landed Youngstown Christian defensive end Tymere Dubose, so mission accomplished there.
“Tymere has committed to Kentucky,” Youngstown Christian assistant coach Nick Wagner said to Scout.com. “He actually committed to Kentucky Thursday evening and we were going to wait and announce it next Wednesady, but we have decided to not have a press conference.”
Kentucky has five commits total now in the 2014 college football recruiting class, and every member is from the state of Ohio. The 6-foot-6, 250-pound defensive end has only played football for one year; it was clearly enough though. He had offers from Michigan State and West Virginia as well, so he clearly has the talent to succeed at the next level.
Kentucky now has five commits in the 2014 recruiting class, and every member is from the state of Ohio. The Wildcats also have commitments from Mikel Horton, Thaddeus Snodgrass and Dorian Hendrix. They won’t be able to contend in the SEC next year, but they should be able to make noise in the future if they keep recruiting well.
