Edition 2, Volume 1
June 4th, 2004

All is quiet on the Tyler Hansbrough front and not much has changed. After a dominating performance in Louisiana over the holiday weekend, Tyler took his game to Mississippi State this weekend for a summer camp. The unofficial visit to Mississippi State does not figure to bring the Bulldogs into the picture as it still appears to be a three horse race with North Carolina and Kansas.

Jim Tirey announced on his show that Myron Pryor, a 2004 signee, will greyshirt and enroll in January due to an injured shoulder. The defensive tackle prospect from Eastern High School in Louisville did not figure to contend for playing time as a true freshmen in an already loaded spot for UK.

According to the Insiders reports out of Ohio, Kentucky has offered Javon Ringer, a 5'10 running back prospect. Ringer is a dynamite running back with excellent speed and good vision. He was the runner up for Mr. Football in Ohio last season.

Joker has apparently offered his second player out of LaGrange High School in LaGrange, Georgia by offering Braxton Kelly, a 6'3 defensive end prospect.

After speaking with his father on Tueday, Inside Kentucky has learned that Sean Santos, a 6 foot quarterback prospect from the same high school that produced Richard Lyons, Jr., will camp at UK this summer. The Holy Cross product does not have any offers as of late.

Shane Brooks, a running back prospect from Pennsylvania, has added three more offers to his already tremendous portfolio of schools.

According to Scott Kennedy, Kentucky is the first school to offer Mam Nyang from Wheeler High School in Marietta, Georgia. The 250 pound defensive end is coming back from an injury, but could be a very nice hidden gem in the Trevard Lindlay, Ben McGrath mold.

Word out of Moeller is Kentucky has finally offered Matthew Tennant, the tall defensive end/offensive line prospect. Tennant wants to play defense in college, but apparently Kentucky does not agree and wants to add pounds and play him on the offensive line.

And finally....

It has been brought to our attention at Inside Kentucky that one of my posts in our members message board "hinted" Kentucky Sports Report of using our premium information and using it in a story. I want to take this opportunity to set the record straight and let our community know that I do not stand by any statements made regarding that situation and do not feel that KSR would ever do such a thing to find material, as we fully adhere to the golden rule of treating others the way you would want to be treated. I want to openly apologize to the members and to the individuals involved if my post regarding that certain situation suggested anything of that magnitude. I hope that we can move on towards the future and in better serving our respective websites in promoting UK athletics. I can only hope that the friendship that I enjoyed with a certain individual will continue along with it.
