Kentucky had 17 players committed for its 2014 recruiting class when offensive coordinator Neal Brown was speaking to the Louisville Quarterback Club Tuesday, but that includes just one receiver (Thaddeus Snodgrass) and one offensive lineman (Jarrett LaRubbio).
“That is the two main spots we are still in search of on offense,” Brown said. “At receiver, we are being really picky. We feel we develop wideouts and that’s why we are being picky. We are in on some big-time players. Soe are not in as big a hurry (to commit) as we would like. We are playing the waiting game a bit. We are going to sign four or five. For the next couple of years, we will play young guys at that position.
“At offensive line, we have got a really good pool. Lot of Oho kids. We feel really good about the offensive line pool and those are the hardest guys to seek out and find. We have one committed right now. We will probably sign three or four more.”
About six hours later, Kentucky got a commit from Havana (Fla.) offensive lineman Derrick Kelly Jr. Scout.com recruiting analyst Jeff Drummond reported the commitment based on what Kelly’s coach told him.
The 6-5, 280-pound Kelly plays both ways as an offensive tackle and defensive end at East Gadsden.
Kelly also had offers from South Carolina, South Florida, Central Florida, Middle Tennessee and several others. He’s the cousin of former Wildcat Eric Kelly.
