Palmetto trio takes in Louisiana Monroe game

With a chance to guarantee its first winning season since 1998, the Wildcat coaching staff packed the stadium for its clash with Louisiana-Monroe.

Among the attendance was a certain trio from the Palmetto state out of Broome High School in Spartanburg (SC).

Highly rated wide receiver Markish Jones, Antonio Thomas and Antwane Glenn came up from the Palmetto State to take in the Wildcats 42-40 victory over Louisiana-Monroe and came away impressed.

"I love the great fan support and the team," Thomas said. "It's like a whole big family."

The 6-foot-3, 200 pound safety/outside linebacker wants to make a commitment to the University of Kentucky tomorrow. "That's where I wanna go to school," Thomas said. "I've been trying to call the coaches right now. I'll probably commit tomorrow at school with my coach."

Thomas had been considered a safety prospect, but the Wildcats would like to bulk him up and move him to outside linebacker. "That's a big part of my decision," Thomas added. "They want me to play outside linebacker and that's where I want to play."

Thomas said his teammates came away impressed, as well.

"They said they liked Kentucky, alot," Thomas said. "They really enjoyed the game and the school, too."

Glenn echoed those sentiments. A 6-foot-4, 250 pound defensive end said the Wildcats helped themselves.

"I liked it alot," Glenn said. "Their football team is all friends and the coaches are real cool. It was a real nice visit."

Glenn is not ready to decide on a school yet, like his teammate Antonio Thomas. "It would be nice to go to school with someone I know, but I'm gonna do my own thing regardless," Glenn said. "It doesn't hurt Kentucky though that Antonio is gonna be there, though."

Glenn is looking to take some visits to Middle Tennessee, Furman, Vanderbilt, Maryland or Furman.

"I'll go back up to Kentucky for an official visit, probably," Glenn said. "I'll be going back up there with my teammates."
