Could the Kentucky Wildcats be primed for a major flip?
Mark Stoops and his staff have been on the wrong end of several big-time recruiting flips over the years. They’re hoping they’ll be on the right side of one when it comes to four-star linebacker Jared Casey.
That would seem to bode very well for the Wildcats, who just enjoyed a breakout 9-3 season, one of the best regular-season finishes in school history. They did it on the strength of one of the nation’s defenses, which is going to lose a ton of talent to graduation, which could pave the way for a guy like Casey to come in and play a big role as a true freshman.
And just like that, a wealth of Kentucky picks are coming in Casey’s 247 Sports crystal ball. With the early signing period almost here, Kentucky appears to be in good shape for this Bluegrass star.
