2013 Signing Class: Kentucky’s Target Zone

target-with-dartsKentucky added 22 players from 10 different states on Wednesday and Thursday.  A breakdown of the Wildcats’ “target zone” is below:

 

Florida = 9 recruits

Kentucky = 3

Ohio = 3

Alabama = 1

Arizona = 1

Kansas = 1

Mississippi = 1

South Carolina = 1

Tennessee = 1

Texas = 1

 

In-State Signees = 13.6%

Out-Of-State Signees = 86.3%

 

Observation:

The state of Kentucky lacks a deep recruiting pool which makes keeping the stars that are produced at home a priority.  Stoops signed three of the Commonwealth’s top 10 players while Louisville nabbed just two.  But Louisville inked the state’s top player.  And Notre Dame made off with the state’s #2 ranked player.  Helping to make up for that fact — and helping to add some excitement for Cat fans — was Stoops’ ability to go back into Florida and return with nine prospects.  While UK’s Joker Phillips-led pipeline into Georgia dried up, Stoops’ connections in Ohio yielded three signees.  Readers of this site know that we believe Ohio, Virginia, and even Pennsylvania should be prime targets for UK.  If AD Mitch Barnhart has found a man who can recruit Florida and Ohio, that’s a mighty big step in the right direction.
