4-star wide receiver for 2014 Blake Bone has tweeted out his choice, and his choice is Kentucky. Bone is from Woodruff, South Carolina, and Kentucky was up against Arkansas, Clemson, Louisville, Mississippi, Nebraska, North Carolina, Georgia Tech and South Carolina for his services.
This is one absolutely huge "get" for Mark Stoops and company, and will no doubt supply a huge boost for the team going into the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers game this Saturday. Bone will elevate Kentucky's already stellar 2014 class, and gives Kentucky what it really needed — a big receiver on the outside. Bone is 6'5" and 183#, and his size gives you that "jump ball" kind of receiver that South Carolina had for 3 years in Alshon Jeffrey.
Bone will join fellow 4-star wideout Thaddeus Snodgrass, Garret Johnson and T.V. Williams in next year's freshman class, which, combined with the 2012 and 2013 classes, should finally give Neal Brown's offense the kind of star power and size it needs to compete in the SEC. Bone was one of those players that Kentucky needed a great deal, and it seems that Mark Stoops & Co. have once again secured a critical piece for next year's campaign.
I would say that this is huge, but you already know that. Here's some Blake Bone highlights to amp you up more:
