Kentucky Football: YAHTZEE! Kentucky Lands Big (As In HUGE) Offensive Lineman

John Morgan

Kentucky needs size on the offensive line, and they got some today.

I don't know about you, but I like big offensive lineman. If you do, too, you have reason to be happy tonight as Josh Krok, all 6' 8" and 320 lbs. of him committed to Mark Stoops and the Kentucky Wildcats today. You want "big uglies?" Well, we got at least half of one today, full-grown and with the one characteristic you cannot teach — size.

From Ben Roberts of the Herald-Leader:

The three-star prospect from Niles, Ohio, was previously committed to West Virginia, but he took an official visit to Lexington over the weekend and that trip was enough to flip his pledge to the Wildcats.

Rivals.com ranks Krok as the No. 39 offensive tackle in the Class of 2014 and the No. 23 senior from the state of Ohio, which UK has hit hard since Stoops and lead recruiter Vince Marrow — both natives of Youngstown — joined the program.

So we steal a West Virginia commitment, and get the kind of size that any team would covet. If he can be properly developed (and I have no doubt he will be), this guy could be playing on Sundays one of these days. There had been a lot of buzz that Kentucky might flip Krok, and it turns out it was right.

You have to love how well Kentucky is recruiting from Ohio, and if we manage to land Matt Elam (who is nearly as big as Krok), We'll have landed some big — literally and figuratively speaking — commitments.

So let's all do a happy dance for Mark Stoops' latest big man. More, please!
