Mark Stoops and his new coaching staff had an outstanding National Signing Day Wednesday.
Kentucky pulled in its best recruiting class since scouting services started ranking recruits. A good start to rebuilding the program.
Two of the Bluegrass state's top prospects remained in the Comonwealth. Defensive End Jason Hatcher out of Louisville Trinity and receiver Ryan Timmons from Franklin County picked UK.
Another positive sign of keeping top talent at home for next season and beyond.
A season and future in which Stoops and his troops not only hope to compete...but expect to...with anyone from the Southeastern Conference.
A mantra he's said from day one when introduced.
