Kentucky Football: 4-Star Oklahoma St. Commit Will Visit Kentucky

Kentucky is getting a surprising visit from a talented player. - Wescott Eberts (SB Nation)

Ra'Shaad Samples, a Rivals 4-star committed to Oklahoma St., will visit Kentucky over the weekend.

Wescott Eberts at SBNation.com is reporting on an interesting development for Kentucky football recruiting. Ra'Shad Samples, an Oklahoma St. commitment, is going to visit Kentucky over the weekend:

A consensus four-star prospect who was invited to The Opening and recently competed in the 2013 Under Armour All-America game, Samples committed to Oklahoma St. back in July at The Opening and appeared to be solidly committed to the Cowboys.

However, the Texas Tech Red Raiders were a team that vied seriously for his verbal commitment when he was still uncommitted, so Samples had developed a relationship with then-offensive coordinator Neal Brown. When Brown made the move to the Wildcats, he used his connections to Samples to convince him to visit.

This is something we didn't see much under Joker Phillips or Rich Brooks, especially at the 4-star level. This could become a very exciting development for Kentucky, and the new staff is really making an amazing amount of waves considering how late it is in the recruiting process for 2013.
