Kentucky Wildcats Morning Quickies: Justin Rogers Edition

Kentucky football lands a commitment by the highest-rated player they’ve ever successfully recruited in the ranking era.


Good morning, ladies and gentlemen of the Big Blue Nation,and welcome to the Tuesday Morning Quickies.

Today’s big news is also yesterday’s big news – the decision of a national top ten-ranked lineman to come to Kentucky in the 2020 class, in this case offensive guard Justin Rogers of Oak Park, Michigan.

It has been exceedingly rare for Kentucky to pick up a player ranked above four stars by any service, but even more rare for the Wildcats to land such a player on the offensive or defensive lines.

Jamie Boggs has all the details here, in case you somehow missed it. This is excellent news for the Kentucky program moving forward in the future, and puts the 2020 class well into the top 25 in the country. 2019 is no slouch (currently at 35 in the nation), but in the SEC, that usually gets you near the bottom of the class rankings.

Kentucky’s football recruiting has never been up there with the great programs, and maybe never will be. But Stoops & Co. have done a fine job of getting quality players to come here and then coaching them up to SEC quality. It will really help a lot if he can begin to get prospects the quality of Rogers.
