Joker Phillips and his staff have brought in another solid recruiting class. This class features a handful of players who can step in immediately and help the Wildcats take the next step in the Southeastern Conference.

Jon Davis – 6-3 230 – ATH – Eastern High (Ky.) – Jon Davis is one of the most highly regarded tight end prospects in the nation. However Davis's ability to do so many things makes him a possibility as a short down running back, tight end, H-Back and even as s linebacker on the defensive side of the ball. Davis has excellent strength and speed and when healthy, he's one of the most dangerous ball-handlers in the state of Kentucky. There are some rumblings that Davis is still considering Louisville, but most insiders believe Kentucky will get his signature.

Darrian Miller – 6-6 275 – OT – Bryan State High (Ky.) – Darrian Miller is a high upside left tackle prospect. Miller has long arms and excellent footwork. His overall athleticism for his size makes him a very intriguing prospect. Miller's play as a junior earned him scholarship offers from not only Kentucky, but Tennessee and Alabama. Miller, with added strength, could be an all-conference type performer for Kentucky.

Josh Forrest – 6-4 200 – ATH – Paducah Tilghman (Ky.) – Josh Forrest has the ability to play multiple roles for the Kentucky Wildcats. Forrest excelled at wide receiver this year and with his great size and strength, he has been able to overpower most defensive backs. However Forrest also has the ability to play some on the defensive side of the ball. He was one of the state leaders in interceptions as a safety and he's a precision tackler. Forrest is another versatile prospect who can wind up helping UK in many ways.

Theltus Cobbins – 6-0 175 – Quarterback – McDonogh 35 (La.) – Kentucky will add two quarterbacks to the team next season. One of these quarterbacks is Theltus Cobbins. Cobbins isn't the biggest quarterback, but he has great feet and excellent elusiveness. Much like Randall Cobb, Cobbins could play some quarterback, but could also play at defensive back or wide receiver. Either way, his athleticism is an asset to the Wildcat roster. Cobbins did suffer a shoulder injury and it's questionable how long that injury will keep him from throwing.

Nick Martin – 6-5 260 – OT – Bishop Chatard High (In.) – It's always a plus to land a legacy recruit and Nick Martin is just that. His father Keith played at Kentucky in the 80s and now his son will follow in his steps. Martin is an aggressive player who can play any position along the offensive line and with added strength, Martin could be the best lineman in the Wildcat class. Martin excels at driving his opponent into the dirt and playing whistle to whistle.

Zach West – 6-5 290 – OL – Lexington Christian Academy (Ky.) – West is much like his offensive line mate, Nick Martin. West is a very cerebral player who plays an aggressive style of football from whistle to whistle. West is the kind of player who can line up and make the calls on the offensive line, adjusting to the defensive scheme. West needs to continue to work on his pass blocking, but he is already an excellent run blocker.

Demarco Robinson – 5-9 ½ 155 – Receiver – MLK High (Ga.) – Demarco Robinson is an athlete who can score anytime he touches the ball. Robinson isn't blessed with great size, but he's deceptively strong. Robinson also has great explosion on the snap and on the catch. Robinson does need to work on his route running and his strength in order to be an effective every down receiver in the SEC, but the other skills are in place. Robinson should be another solid wide out for the Cats.

Josh Clemons – 5-10 205 – Running Back – Whitewater High (Ga.) – Kentucky needed a running back after Donald Russell chose to transfer at the break. Josh Clemons fits the billing of an every down back for the Wildcats in every way. Clemons has great strength an excellent speed. Clemons also is known to effectively use a stiff arm to pick up additional yardage. Clemons can catch the ball out the backfield, but he will still need to improve in that area of his game. But Clemons has great balance and the ability to run through arm tackles.
