New UK commit Mac Jones "excited to step in as a leader of 2017 class"
In 2014, Drew Barker was the leader of UK's amazing recruiting haul. This year, Drake Jackson has been the vocal leader of UK's class. In 2017, it may be new commit Mac Jones who helps persuade other recruits to join him in Lexington. That's a role Jones is fully ready to take.

Recruiting expert would be 'shocked' if Markelle Fultz doesn't end up at Kentucky
This happened late last night, so we tossed it in the Quickies this morning. It's a pretty significant development in the recruitment of what may be UK's top realistic target in 2016.

UK football walk-ons to watch this year
Every year under Mark Stoops, at least one walk-on has found his way onto the field and made an impact. Cole Mosier became a full-time starter at guard last year while wide receivers Joey Herrick and Charles Walker got significant snaps on offense.

Vote for UK's Kendra Harrison to win the Bowerman Trophy.
Kentucky track and field star Kendra Harrison is the first Bowerman finalist in the program's history, and she's more than earned it. Harrison has two NCAA individual championships, 15 All-American selections, and is the third-fastest collegian ever in the 100M and 400M hurdles.

UK DT target Walvenski Aime set for official visit to Minnesota
A three-star defensive tackle out of Fort Scott Junior College, Walvenski Aimeis getting set to use one of his official visits to Minnesota. Aime visited UK back on July 17, but it's not clear as to how big of a priority in the 2016 class he is compared to other defensive lineman. There's only about 3-4 more spots left to be filled, but Aimeis could certainly be one of them.

UK set to rely on TEs more in 2015
There's hasn't been a clear-cut option for Kentucky at tight end since the days of Jacob Tamme. Daryl Long and CJ Conrad will look to change that this coming season. Both were as highly-touted as any TE prospect UK has gotten in recent memory, so maybe they'll be the ones to finally end the drought of production at that spot.

SEC Franchise Players
If SEC teams could lock-in one player for the 2015 season, who would it be? For Kentucky, you could have a good debate between Patrick Towles and Boom Williams. SDS gave the nod to Boom.
