Happy Friday, Kentucky fans! The Wildcats are one day from their matchup at Mississippi State, another test that has the potential to be a pivotal moment in their season. They seem to feel good, and on Thursday, they got some good recruiting news, as well. Let’s dive in.
Here are three things to know:
- Charles Reeves didn’t even need 48 hours to cash in on the offer Kentucky extended to him Tuesday. Reeves committed to the Wildcats on Thursday via his Twitter... on his birthday! The 6-foot-6 Ohio native is the nation’s No. 11 tight end in the class of 2017.
- Kentucky coach Mark Stoops is no stranger to Dak Prescott’s game and on Saturday, the Wildcats will look to limit the Mississippi State quarterback whom Stoops is so impressed with. Prescott went 30-for-43 with three passing touchdowns and a rushing touchdown, last week against Louisiana Tech.
- Don’t expect to see Thaddeus Snodgrass dressed Saturday to play. Kentucky confirmed this week that the wide receiver is leaving the program and it seems that Snodgrass wants to transfer. Kentucky has already taken him off their official roster on the team’s website.
