Stoops, Spurrier and The U: Kash Daniel Explains Why Kentucky

During his hour-long interview with Kentucky Sports Radio, former UK linebacker Kash Daniel touched on a number of topics from his four years as a Wildcat. Among them, we learned why he picked Kentucky over other offers, including South Carolina, as a high school senior growing up in Paintsville, Ky.

Three of the factors behind that decision, he said, were a run-in with Steve Spurrier while on a visit, how Mark Stoops runs his football program, and “The U,” of all things.

Let’s start with Spurrier. Daniel told a story of taking a trip to Columbia for a football camp, months after the Gamecocks had extended him a scholarship offer.
