This Vince Marrow flip from West Virginia is a biggun' at 6'8" and over 300lbs. He takes up a lot of space and he's got a mean streak for an offensive lineman. Krok became our 26th commitment on January 27th after visiting the week before. He cancelled his visit to West Virginia scheduled for January 24th. Kentucky wound up beating out West Virginia, Louisville and Cincinnati. He's ranked at #96 in the Orlando Sentinel's Top 100 players in Florida. Judging from the number of offers, it seems the Sentinel missed on the ranking.

While he only had six offers, that doesn't mean he is a great pick up for the Cats. Justin Rowland at Rivals reported the UK coaches felt Krok was the best offensive lineman they'd seen. Usually, players of this size are considered projects. After all, a 17 year-old with this size may not yet have developed the footwork and flexibility needed to be competitive at a collegiate level. This comment by the UK staff at least implies these factors may not be an issue with the young Krok. It's tough to gauge if Krok will receive immediate playing time with returning starter Darrian Miller at one tackle slot and returning starter Jordan Swindle at the other. Meanwhile, redshirt freshman Kyle Meadows will also compete for a starting position.
