Will the Cats hold onto their five-star recruiter?

UK Athletics

There is a lot of fear in the Bluegrass, as the Michigan State Spartans are making a strong push to hire Kentucky Wildcats recruiting coordinator and tight ends coach Vince Marrow.

Marrow has done an outstanding job as Kentucky’s top recruiter, as he’s helped land prospects that became program legends in Lexington. As a result, the team has reached four straight bowl games and is in the conversation to win the SEC East in 2020.

While Marrow already turned down the head coaching position at his hometown school of Youngstown State, Michigan State is reportedly set to offer him a contract that would make him one of the highest-paid non-coordinator assistants in the nation.

This all comes after Michigan State hired Colorado head coach and Marrow’s long time friend Mel Tucker to replace the newly retired Mark Dantonio.

However. KSR’s Matt Jones is reporting that Kentucky has issued a counteroffer that is very close to what Michigan State is offering.

The Spartans were reportedly offering Marrow a contract that will pay him close to $1 million annually, and I think it’s safe to say that Marrow has that kind of value to Kentucky.

Can Mark Stoops, Mitch Barnhart and company convince Marrow to stay at Kentucky? Or will he head north for East Lansing?
