They're not necessarily the top five or the main targets for 2015, but they're players that the staff has targeted for quite some time and received strong feedback in return.
Luke Hiers is teammate of current UK commit Marcus Walker, one of two verbals the Cats have so far in the junior class. The highly-regarded center prospect from Florida is visiting Kentucky in April with the intention of making his college decision not too long after. The Cats are No. 1 on his list and considered heavy favorite in his recruitment.
Gerald Robinson Jr. is another Sunshine State product that is very high on UK. He camped with the Cats this past summer and fell in love with the campus. Robinson has built a very strong relationship with UK corners coach Derrick Ansley. He is planning on visiting Kentucky this summer, and I would not be shocked to see him pull the trigger shortly after the trip.
Jarmarkus Sims is an Alabama defensive back that has been in love with Kentucky ever since he received an offer. He wants to play at a school where he can have fun, but also enjoy playing football. He's visited Auburn and Alabama several times in the past, but never received an offer. Sims is planning on visiting Kentucky next month for the second time. UK is the heavy favorite in his recruitment.
George Asafo-Adjei is a former teammate of current Cat Mikel Horton. The two are close friends, and that could be a big edge for UK in this recruitment. Asafo-Adjei visited Lexington this past weekend and said he had an amazing time. Look for the Buckeye State standout to potentially be the first O-Line commitment for 2015.
Anthony McKee Jr. is another Ohio recruit that is high on Kentucky. He told me recently he's been a fan of the Cats for a long time. He has been building a strong relationship with UK recruiting coordinator Vince Marrow, who has been the ace of the staff thus far. He's planning on visiting the Cats soon.
