Signing Day 2013: The Battle For Kentucky

state map kentuckyLooking at Wednesday’s signees — including junior college and prep school athletes — here’s a snapshot of the talent produced by the state of Kentucky in 2013 (as graded by Rivals.com):

 

5-stars = 0

4-stars = 3

3- stars = 6

Total 3+ stars = 9

 

Here’s where the state’s 10 highest-ranked players are headed:

 

Kentucky = 3

Louisville = 2

Kansas = 1

Notre Dame = 1

Purdue = 1

Toledo = 1

Vanderbilt = 1

 

Loyalty:  Five of the state’s thoroughbreds are staying at home to play football.  Mark Stoops even landed more of the top in-state players than Sugar Bowl-winning Charlie Strong.  That’s a nice start, but with so few high-caliber prospects in the Bluegrass State, Stoops will need to start luring even more of the top 10 to Lexington in years to come.
