Kentucky Football: 4-Star Linebacker Nico Firios Becomes The Newest 2014 Wildcat

This is a thing of the past!!! - Andy Lyons

Somebody better get Mark Stoops a contract extension in the works.

Nico Firios (#18 linebacker Class of 2014, 4-star ESPN) has committed to UK for the 2014 class. This should move that class into the Top 5. The 6’2″ 225lb Firios, picked the Wildcats over Louisville, Cincinnati, Wisconsin and others. Hat Tip: Nation of Blue

Stoops has made defense a priority for Kentucky and has big time defensive players coming in over the next 2-3 years to get UK into the mix in the toughest conference in the country. If UK can build a serious defense to go with the high-powered offense they are installing, there is no limit to how high the Cats can climb.

Firios is an inside linebacker out of Lyman High School in Florida. Here is some video:

This just makes Stoops' case even stronger for his plan of how to revive Kentucky football. If there is any approach that would endear him to the UK faithful it is in building a winning defense. Offense puts people in the stands, but defense wins championships.

Welcome aboard there Nico!!!
