With 24 football recruits in town this weekend, Kentucky got a big visit from NFL legend Ed Reed. I’m not totally sure what brought Reed to town, but there are rumors swirling that Reed could be the 10th assistant with UK’s program (which the NCAA now allows). This could have been Mark Stoops and Reed laying the groundwork for that, which would be huge for Kentucky football.
