New Kentucky offensive coordinator Neal Brown apparently hit the ground running Monday as soon as he officially signed his new contract with the Wildcats.
Kentucky has two potential big-time receivers — James Quick of Trinity and Ryan Timmons of Franklin County — with the speed and playmaking ability to compete in the SEC. Last week new defensive coordinator D.J. Eliot went to see both players, but Brown is the one who will be coaching them if they decided to come to Kentucky. That’s why Brown wasted no time Monday according to sources going to see both players, who have yet to make their college choices.
Sources also indicated that he hoped to pay a visit to Notre Dame commit Hunter Bivin, a 290-pound lineman at Owensboro Apollo.
If Kentucky could land one of the three, that would be major progress for coach Mark Stoops and his staff. If the Cats could get two, it would be a huge boost for the program in a variety of ways.
Brown may even have found time to visit another high profile Lexington player Monday just after he signed his contract and before he hit the road.
