Vince Marrow conquers Louisville, other sports news, and a Kerry Blackshear update (sort of).

Jason Marcum - Sea of Blue

It was one helluva weekend for the Kentucky Wildcats football team as Mark Stoops and co. landed four commitments in a span of two days.

Two of the players are from the city of Louisville. At one point, the pipeline to the city was pretty much closed off. Mark Stoops understands the importance of dominating recruiting in your own state so he instilled Vince Marrow as the recruiting coordinator for the state of Kentucky.

Once that happened, the tide turned almost automatically. With the failing of Bobby Petrino and a new staff in at Louisville, it was prime time for Marrow to make his presence known and he’s done just that.

Don’t doubt the Big Dog.

And lastly, there is no updates on Kerry Blackshear. I have no idea where he is going to go or when he’s going to announce. Your guess is as good as mine.

But my feeling is that it’s a good thing that he didn’t announce yesterday as was widely predicted. I think had he done that it would have been Tennessee. The fact that he didn’t announce means that Kentucky still has a chance. That’s all I got.
