Coach Phillips has several important prospects that he wants to bring into the Wildcat fold. Some of those prospects will be on campus this weekend to visit with the Wildcats.

Maudrecus Humphrey - 6-2 185 (4.34 forty) - Hoover High, Hoover (AL.) - The Wildcats have continually recruited Humphrey to join the Cats' 2010 recruiting class. Humphrey has spoken highly of Kentucky and has visited the campus unofficially once before. He's currently considering Kentucky, Arkansas and Mississippi State.
Humphrey in his own words: "I think I always pose a vertical threat," said Humphrey. "That's what coaches talk about when they look at me on film. I'm also an aggressive blocker, but my speed (4.34 forty) helps to carry me."

Dyjuan Lewis - 6-2 187 (4.49 forty) - Pike High, Indianapolis (IN.) - Dyjuan Lewis was thought early in the recruiting process to be Kentucky's top target offensively this season. Lewis eventually chose Cincinnati, but with the coaching change for the Bearcats, Lewis has opened things back up. Lewis is currently considering Kentucky, Cincinnati, Notre Dame, Purdue and Oregon.
Lewis is his own words: "My speed (4.45 forty) is a big strength. I'm good at going up and getting the ball," said the 6-foot-2 185-pound receiver. "I want to get better at route running, though."

Rajaan Bennett - 5-10 210 (4.6 forty) - McEachern High, Powder Springs (GA.) - With Kentucky in needs of an every-down back, a player of Bennett's caliber would be a good fit. His ability to catch out of the backfield and his ability to take the pounding play after play makes him attractive to several schools, however Bennett has narrowed his list down to Kentucky, Vanderbilt and Tennessee. Tennessee has yet to offer, however.
Bennett in his own words: "I consider myself an every down back, but I also have the speed to be a scatback and the ability to be a power back as well," said Bennett. "I can also block and catch out of the backfield," he continued. "Whatever I have to do, I'll do it," said Bennett.

KSR will speak with each of these prospects after their visits this weekend and we'll bring you the interviews as soon as they are available.
