Mark Stoops and his staff have been killing it on the recruiting trail, as the Kentucky Wildcats picked up commitments from three top-300 recruits over the weekend.
Those additions moved Kentucky’s 2022 recruiting class to No. 10 in the country, and they are not close to being done yet.

Despite his father, Eric Kattus, playing for Michigan during his college career, Vince Marrow was able to bring his son to Lexington.
247 Sports has Kattus ranked 32nd in the state of Ohio and 64th among tight ends. Rivals has him ranked 26th in Ohio. Among the other schools to offer include Pittsburgh, Kansas, Georgia Tech and Northwestern.
This is another big get for Kentucky as Liam Coen’s offense is expected to utilize tight ends more than we have seen in the past, and Kattus’ physicality will fit in nicely at Kentucky.
