What a weekend for Kentucky Football.

Mark Stoops and company, most notable Vince Marrow, continue to roll in recruiting and this weekend seemed like one long game of Yahtzee.

On Friday, the Kentucky Wildcats received commitments from 2021 target Rhoody Jean Louis and 2020 three-star running back Torrance Davis. Saturday saw even more of a flash with the commitment of four-star running back Jutahn McClain.

Just when you think the Kentucky Football staff hits a high point, they come right along and surpass it. And there is absolutely no reason to think that they will be slowing down any time soon.

Tweet of the Day

Although the dice were hot all weekend, this tweet by the No. 1 player in the state of Alabama put a nice exclamation point on a weekend of major Yahtzee.
