‘They were blown away.’ Big crowds, big wins generate big interest among UK recruits.

There was a deep chuckle from within Vince Marrow on Tuesday night when he was asked how unbeaten Kentucky’s success this season has translated to recruiting success for future seasons.

“It was kind of hard recruiting here early, when we first got here,” said UK’s recruiting coordinator and tight ends coach, who has been on Mark Stoops’ staff since he arrived six years ago. “Now I know how Ohio State and all those other guys feel. When you’re on the other side of the thing, now being a top-20 team.”

Some recruits who might have been lukewarm on Kentucky at the start of the process are working to book official visits.
