KSR takes a Look at Recruiting

KSR reviews prospects who are still considering Kentucky and could ultimately sign with the Wildcats.

The Wildcats have precious few remaining spots open for the 2010 recruiting class. And barring attrition or academic troubles from the class, it's likely that no more than 22 players can be taken. With that in mind, here are a few offensive players still left on the board.

Hutson Mason
Mason is really making a name for himself the last two seasons. He's set the single season passing record in the state of Georgia this season and only fell five yards short the year before. Mason holds a handful of MAC offers and has the interest of the Wildcats, along with Mississippi State and Virginia.
Jamius Gunsby
Gunsby is a super athlete with a big frame. He stands 6-foot-4, 225 pounds and can play a number of positions. He starts at quarterback at LaGrange High and he's capable of playing tight end, wide receiver, safety or linebacker. Florida and Kentucky are his leaders.

Offensive Line:
Kenarious Gates
Gates is an athletic offensive tackle. At 6-foot-5, 290 pounds, he is able to get to the second level in drive blocking. He still needs work at pass blocking, but his overall athleticism and talent makes him a good prospect. Kentucky, Mississippi State, NC State and Vandy are all involved. Brandon Clark
Clark is a guard prospect with a lot of size at 6-foot-4, 330-pounds. His run blocking ability is his biggest asset, but he's improving in the passing game. Clark has an offer from Kentucky along with Michigan State, UAB and interest from several others.
Eric Mack
Eric mack is one of the best players at his position in the nation. He's a great pass blocker who needs work in run blocking. Mack has great feet and great strength at 6-foot-4, 315. He's committed to his home state South Carolina, but he plans on visiting Kentucky. He's also got offers from Auburn, Alabama, ClemsonFlorida and Florida State.

Running Back:
Rajaan Bennett
Bennett may be the top running back on the board for Kentucky. He has great size and good feet for his size. He's also a capable blocker in both the passing and running game. Bennett catches well out of the backfield which fits him well into the Wildcat scheme. Kentucky, Louisville, Vanderbilt and Wisconsin are all involved and have offered.
Travaughn Brooks
Brooks is a durable back with power and speed. At 5-foot-11, 210, he's already got college size. This season, Brooks ran for close to 2000 yards before his team fell early in the playoffs. He was thought to be a big Kentucky lean, but at this point that can't be confirmed anymore. He's got an offer from Kentucky, Arkansas, Central Florida and Western Michigan.
Miles Simpson
Simpson, 6-foot-2, 200 pounds, is the best running back prospect in Kentucky. Simpson has speed at 4.55 and uses his size to punish would-be tacklers. Simpson can also run around defenders and catch well out of the backfield. Kentucky, Purdue, Cincinnati, Indiana Illinois and Louisville are all among his leaders. Jerrell Priester
Versatility is the key word for Priester. He's capable of playing running back or wide receiver and even defensive back. He's got high level speed at 4.48 and he also packs a punch with even his small size (5-foot-9, 170). Priester is committed to Vanderbilt, but Kentucky is making a move to land him.

Wide Receiver
Maudrecus Humphrey
With speed to burn (4.34 forty), Humphrey is a hot name on recruiting boards. He does need to work on his strength (185 pounds). He's a good blocker and runs good routes as well. Humphrey has interest from all over the SEC, including Kentucky, Arkansas, Mississippi State and Ole Miss. Lamar Ivey
Lamar Ivey has good size at 6-foot-1, 190 pounds. He also has the ability to make people miss. His 4.5 forty time and size also give him the ability to play on both sides of the ball. Currently Kentucky, North Carolina State, East Carolina and West Virginia.
