Dear Cody - Dakari is an automatic. He is on the list without saying. He plays for the Cats for petes sakes.
Sometimes things just workout the way you plan it. That would be the case for UK commit - Quinton Baker. Baker committed to the Cats just less than a week ago and that committment was in the plans all along. This all stimulating from a recent interview by Justin Rowland of CatsIllustrated.com. Make sure to read the entire write up which you can read by clicking right here. Meanwhile here is what Baker had to say about wanting to play at Kentucky.
“I always thought playing in the SEC championship game would be cool and I could do that if I went to Kentucky,” said Quinton Baker, who runs the 40-yard dash in 4.37 seconds. “I could always tell I liked it and wanted to play there. I am just in love with everything about Kentucky.“I have always been a UK fan because my whole family has been UK fans. When the recruiting process started, Dad not say a word about Kentucky and did not want to influence me. He said it was up to me to decide and he would support whatever I wanted to do.”

Kentucky is prowling on UNC three-star cornerback commit - according to CatsIllustrated. J.T. Britt committed to the Tar Heels back back in June but that did not stop him from paying a visit to Lexington this past weekend. Althought at the cureent time Britt claims is his fully committed to UNC one would have to think that if the NCAA drops a huge punishment on the Tar Heel program Britt might reconsider his committment to UNC. By the way did I mention that Britt chose between UNC and UK back in June.
As far as the visit to Kentucky this weekend Britt expalined to CatsIllustrated why he decided to go ahead and pay a visit to Kentucky.
"I wanted to visit because they've still been recruiting me," Britt said. "I'm still with UNC. I'm pretty solid with the Tar Heels. There's a little concern because of all the stuff that's been put out there (associated with the Wainstein report), but not much. Not enough to make me change my mind. I'm going to wait and see if anything does happen. But my coaches at UNC told me I shouldn't worry about anything, so I'm going to trust them."
If UNC goes on sometime of probation then this Britt recruitment could get very interesting.

UK commit Marcus Walker is on the move according to a Michigan State based website - SpartanTailgate.com. The site is reporting that Walker is set to visit the Spartans on November 7th when they play the Ohio State Buckeyes. Walker committed to the Cats in late September and he is a three-star safety that of the 2015 class. He chose the Cats over Notre Dame, Arkansas, UCLA, Tennessee, and plenty of other schools but Michigan State is on the prowl I guess. Walkers visit will be an official visit which means it is on MSU's dime. I guess I can't blame the kid. I mean hell i would probably go watch the Spartans and the Buckeyes play for free too.
What they said:
Spartan Tailgate is hearing that Lake Wales (Fla.) class of 2015 defensive back Marcus Walker is planning on taking an official visit to Michigan State the weekend of November 7 when MSU hosts Ohio State. The 6-foot-1, 180-pound Walker has decommitted and recommitted to Kentucky twice already. The last time Walker committed to Kentucky was back on July 18. Meanwhile, Walker has kept in touch with Michigan State assistant coach Halron Barnett.
Now before you crazies start tweeting Walker and stalking him like he's your best friend or Ex read below as he says something, through an interview with with Justin Rowland on CatsIllustrated, to put the BBN at ease with whole situation.
"I'm going up to Michigan State this weekend for an official (visit) but I'm 100 percent with Kentucky," he said.
Ok. Now breathe again.

Today is the day for three-star safety - Darius Smith. Smith will be announcing sometime around 3 pm today where he will play college football and you can catch it on UStream. Not sure how UStream works so I don't have any info on what to do when you get on UStream but I am sure it will be all over twitter as soon as the announcement is made.
Smith is choosing between Kentucky, Louisville, Miami, Missouri, and North Carolina State. In a recent interview Smith made it known that he already knows what team he is coming to but apparently none of the coaches know. John Garcia of Scout.com caught up with Smith and asked about the decision and why he will choose the school that he is choosing.
"I just love the coaching staff and the team," he said. "It's just a nice environment."
Many believe that Smith is pretty much choosing between Kentucky and Louisville. So if that is the case, just to have fun, let'sbreak it down between Kentucky and Louisville.
Louisville: I haven't heard to many recruits come out of a Louisville visit and in the interview say they loved the coaching staff and the enviroment. Generally the coments are they feel like Petrino is a good coach and can get them to the next level. Not looking good for the Tards!
Kentucky: I have definetely heard recruits say that they love the coaching staff at Kentucky and love the enviroment there. That to means it is looking good for Kentucky!
