LOOK: Kentucky Football recruiting now has "Our State" message

New, 3 comments

The state of Kentucky once again belongs to UK on the gridiron, and they're letting recruits know.

Strike while the iron is hot.

That's what Kentucky Football is still doing three weeks after their program-shifting win at No. 15 Louisville to cap off a breakout season for Mark Stoops and co. They still have the TaxSlayer Bowl to prepare for, but that's another two weeks away, leaving a lot of free time for UK to hit the recruiting trail.

Those efforts now include a message to remind recruits who won in their rival's house as a 27-point underdog.

Ironically enough, UK and Louisville have classes ranked in the same range in most of the major services. That includes 247 Sports, where the Cards are ranked 23rd compared to UK being 24th. But 247 Sports Composite, which factors in all of the major services, has UK's class ranked 24th compared to Louisville being 27th.

The win over the Cards may very well be what gives UK the deciding edge with several of their top targets, and it may also help the Cats finish with a better recruiting class.
