Receiver Alex Stump publicly flipped his commitment from the University of Kentucky to Ohio State today.
I am flipping my commitment from Kentucky to THE Ohio State University. It has always been my dream to stay home and play for the Buckeyes— Alex Stump (@ShowTime_Stump) October 12, 2014
Stump followed that tweet up with:
This was a very tough decision. I want to thank the University of Kentucky and all of the #BBN. I wish nothing but the best for the program.— Alex Stump (@ShowTime_Stump) October 12, 2014
Stump: "Mark Stoops understood and helped make this difficult decision easier. He was great."— Jeremy Birmingham (@Birm) October 12, 2014
Kentucky is going struggle to hold on to commitments whenever their dream school offers. Luckily for UK, the recruits the staff is competing for these days have dream schools like Ohio State. Mark Stoops giving his support, and helping to make the decision easier, says something about his character. That kind of character will win over more recruits than it will lose in the long-run.
Good luck to Stump at OSU. For BBN it's on to the next one (don't play if you don't want to hear foul language):
