Kentucky Football: 2014 Recruiting Wish List

Derek Thomas

Every team needs a wish list. Here's my wish list for the 2014 class so far.

We currently have seven commitments which means, if all were to sign, we have eighteen open spots to reach our 25 SEC Limit for the 2014 class. Time to be day dream believer. Who would you like to see on our commitment list? Here’s my Top 30 by position.

Thirty? Why not? We only signed 22 for 2013 and we don't know how many of those will actually enroll. We don't know if JUCO Melvin Lewis signed or not. We do know that Braylon Heard is enrolling, and we could very well have some attrition in the roster. Obviously, we are not going to get commitments from all of these players, but if we get 8 (26.6%) of these players listed below, we could very well have a Top 10 recruiting class come signing day. Stoops & Company could become recruiting demi-gods.

Seven are currently Kentucky leans. There are lower rated players we will likely sign, but hey, we are daydreaming here. You have to suspend reality in order to dream.
