GIDEL: Palmetto Teammates Land UK Offer

The University of Kentucky has a rich tradition of pin-pointing some of the best prospects in the state of South Carolina, just prior to them 'blowing up' on the recruiting mainstream and thus ruining any chance of the Wildcats stealing the respective, 'under-the-radar' recruit.

From Dekoda Watson (FSU) to Rodney Paulk (USC), UK seemingly has always found a way to get into the homes of the hidden gems in the Palmetto state before others, yet hasn't found a way to land their signatures come signing day.

Coach Rich Brooks and his staff are hoping this year has better results then in year's past, as Kentucky has offered a host of South Carolina 'tweeners' in hopes of closing the deal for 2007.

Added to the crop last Tuesday, was Spartanburg (SC) Broome HS standouts, Antwane Glenn, who along with teammate, Antonio Thomas, were offered by the Wildcats.

"I feel really good about the offer from the University of Kentucky," Glenn said. "It's my first SEC offer, which is great, because it's a big school and a great conference to play football in."

"I think I am gonna visit soon. Me and the coach haven't set it up, yet, but it's definitely something I'm gonna wanna see before I make a decision."

Kentucky has offered teammates Markish Jones and Antonio Thomas. When asked if that would help Kentucky chances of landing Glenn's services? "It would be nice to go to school knowing someone, but as far as making my own decision," Glenn said, "I'm gonna go to school where I feel comfortable, not just because we can all goto school together."

In-state Furman, East Carolina and Middle Tennessee State join the Wildcats in pursuit of the talented defensive end, whom already has a qualifying test score to go with his 4.0 GPA.

"I also am hearing from Vanderbilt, Maryland, Virginia, East Carolina, Middle Tennessee State, Tennessee and Georgia."
