Three-star Cincinnati (Ohio) Moeller offensive lineman Alex Gall at one time was thought to be at the top of Kentucky's offensive line board. He had taken a few unofficial visits to Lexington and at one point considered the Wildcats to be a potential leader in his recruitment.
The 6-foot-5, 295-pound tackle, who is rated No. 17 at his position nationally by Scout and FOX Sports, eventually committed to the Miami Hurricanes. But has a coaching change at UK re-opened the door?
"They called me and I talked to coach (Mark) Stoops and the offensive coordinator (Neal Brown)," Gall said. "They expressed that my scholarship offer was still on the table and that they'd really like for me to come down and take an official visit.
"I told them I really appreciated that, but nothing has really changed on my end. I'm really happy with my decision to go to Miami, and unless something drastic happened between now and signing day, I probably won't be taking any other visits. But I did like Kentucky and I'm glad that they're still interested in me."
Gall noted that Stoops had recruited him previously at Florida State. "He seems like a good guy. I think he'll do a good job there."
He'll be taking his official visit with the Hurricanes this weekend.
"I built a really good relationship with their staff," Gall said. "That was the main reason why I chose them."
