SIGNING DAY: Late Switch Wish List

The surprise signature is always one of the more fun parts of the annual Signing Day extravaganza. UK and coach Rich Brooks in the past, have surprised fans with a Signing Day present in years past. Here's some possible signing day surprise party invites.

Offered at one point

Harvey English: Presumed to be thinking about possibly committing to Clemson earlier in the year, English has not formally committed to anywhere and the two schools he has held formal offers from the past 8-9 months have done little in regards to his recruitment. While UK's interest in English has been waning the past few weeks, the 5-foot-11, 200 pound running back could be a late signee should Clemson not find room for him.

Jonathan Frink: Fans continue to wait for the announcement of Jonathan Frink and where he'll attend college. Ole Miss has been perceived to be the strong favorite from the beginning, but many speculate his insistence on taking five official visits have possibly caused him to lose his chance at becoming a Rebel. The SEC West representative recently accepted a verbal from a junior college linebacker days ago. Stanford, Air Force, Kentucky and Indiana finish off the list of candidates for Frink.

Jeff Boyd: The Wildcats lost Boyd in the middle of January just a week prior to his scheduled visit to the UK campus. At the time, he was verbally committed with teammate Jerimy Finch, who is now 50-50 between IU and Florida, and other teammates, Chris Adkins and Andrew McDonald. All three Warren Central HS standouts are expected to stick with the Hoosiers, but Boyd was particularly swayed towards IU because of Finch and should Finch sign elsewhere, perhaps Boyd might take a look, as well.

Zeke Rozier: A tremendous longshot considering the verbal commitment of Florida linebacker Ronnie Sneed, Rozier is a linebacker/running back candidate currently days from his verbal commitment to Georgia Southern. Should the Wildcats miss out on Jonathan Frink, Rozier could be the first to receive the phone call that he has an available offer. The 'Cats have led for the 6-foot-1, 205 pound athlete from Cochran (Ga.) from the start.

Kyle Wilbur: Despite the fact he's currently verballed to Wake Forest, Wilbur was closer than some believe to landing at Kentucky. The 6-foot-4, 235 pound defensive end was one of the few that fell because of the scholarship crunch and with the Wildcats believing at the time they had Matthew Broha and Jeff Boyd in the bag, things could possibly be changing.

Dequan Bembry: Like Rozier, Bembry was all but set to commit to Kentucky, before he was told he was unable to because of the scholarship crunch at UK. Given the abundance of cornerbacks already set to sign with UK on Wednesday, it would be a huge surprise to see the Wildcats land Bembry, but should the opportunity arise, perhaps the 5-foot-9, 175 pound former commitment of Auburn University, might re-consider his new verbal to Marshall.

Keith Tandy: Yeah, it's far-fetched, but at the same time UK wasn't necessarily as open to the possibility of utilizing Tandy on offense in October as perhaps they are now with the departure of Curtis Pulley. Tandy, a physical player that would make an excellent blocking wide receiver, might be an intruiging possibility. Rumors in Hoptown have indicated that he wasn't exactly enamored with walking in the shadow of the UK quarterback, but his close roots to Lexington could cause him to re-consider.
