GOOD NEWS: Just In Georgia Bulldogs Are In Talk To Sign Another Top Sensational Star Player

Cats Insider: Top recruiting targets, transfer plans, and Damien Martinez
The most recent notes and news about Kentucky football recruiting.

– Damien Martinez, an Oregon State running back transfer, is a mystery to all Kentucky fans. Why would they take another running back, first and foremost? Are they dissatisfied with Chip Trayanum, the Ohio State transfer? That is untrue, I promise you. Trayanum has lived up to the hype surrounding him. Football is a weapon that Mark Stoops wants his team to be able to run. Bush Hamdan, the offensive coordinator, wants his squad to run the football. You need a few reliable running backs to carry the weight if the game is played at a faster tempo. The UK is not using the transfer site to chase after any random running back. Only athletes with significant effect, like Martinez and Quinshon Judkins prior to his transfer to Ohio State, have been targeted by them.

Second, what is the UK’s position? He is going to visit the UK, as I reported yesterday. He’s also thinking about Miami, Arizona, and Mississippi State. I think the Hurricanes are the obvious front-runner. Before he starts his visits later this week, they are the sole team traveling to meet with him and his family. The final visit will also go to the ACC program. Miami is currently outspending a lot of clubs, so I don’t think it will be easy to catch up to them unless they can lock him down on one of those multi-day trips.

– Kentucky will keep looking into using the transfer portal to potentially bolster its cornerback depth. As previously mentioned in a Cats Insider, UK was optimistic about their starting lineup entering the previous campaign and hoped that the others would follow suit. Their hand was forced by injuries, and their depth posed a risk. Even though those backups now have an additional year to gather experience, I believe the coaching staff would like to have more options available when the season begins in case injuries recur.

Having said that, they made contact with transfer Notre Dame cornerback Clarence Lewis prior to his Syracuse commitment. Throughout his career, Lewis has played more than 1,800 defensive snaps, recording 20 pass deflections and 3 interceptions. It makes a lot of sense to have a player with substantial playing experience who is in the mold of Keidron Smith.
