Kentucky may need to counter fast in order to keep Marrow in Lexington.

Just weeks after Kentucky Wildcats recruiting coordinator and tight ends coach Vince Marrow announced he would reject the Youngstown State head coaching position, the Cats could be in danger of losing their top recruiter yet again.

KSR has learned that the Michigan State Spartans have already reached out to Marrow about a potential job, and Justin Rowland of Cats Illustrated reports that the Michigan State could be set to offer Marrow a contract with an annual salary near one million dollars to come north to East Lansing.

This comes just hours after it was announced that Marrow’s close friend, Mel Tucker, would be leaving Colorado to become Michigan State’s head coach.

Marrow is set to make $625,000 in with Kentucky 2020 season and $650,000 in 2021. Thus, if Michigan State offers close to a million, it will be hard to convince him to stay without a large counter offer.

Losing Marrow would be a crushing blow to a Kentucky program that’s beginning reached four straight bowl games in large part due to the job Marrow has done recruiting. Saying this, expect Mark Stoops and Mitch Barnhart to do everything they can to keep Marrow in Lexington for the foreseeable future.
