One of Kentucky's more recent scholarship offers was issued to Niles (Ohio) McKinley standout Josh Krok, a massive offensive line prospect who says he plans to visit the Wildcats in the near future.
"I'm going to be checking out Louisville and Kentucky on an overnight trip down there around the 10th," Krok said. "Both of them recently offered me, so I'm going to go down and get a closer look at both schools. I like what I've heard from them so far."
Krok (6-8, 290) is a three-star prospect who is just now beginning to generate a lot of attention on the recruiting scene. In addition to UK and UofL, he has picked up offers from major programs like Cincinnati, West Virginia and Wisconsin.
"(Kentucky) came by my school a couple of weeks ago," he said. "I think it was coach (Vince) Marrow. We got to talk for a little bit, got to know each other better, and he said he wanted to get me down there on campus, that they had a lot going for them being in the SEC. They have definitely caused a buzz up here in Ohio with all they guys they've recruited from this area.
"He also knows I love to fish, so he told me there's a ton of lakes down there and a lot of good fishing. I liked that."
Asked what he's looking for in a future college home, Krok said: "Definitely the people. Just somewhere I can feel comfortable around the coaches and players. Then my major. I want to go into criminal justice. And the third thing would be the distance from home. I hate long car rides, so I don't want to be anywhere too far from home."
Do upcoming visits like UK, UofL and West Virginia fit his criteria of being "close to home?"
"Yes," Krok said. "None of them are too far from here. I could see myself at any of them if I like it when I visit."
