Kentucky and Alabama are engaged in a couple of recruiting battles on the gridiron, and believe it or not, Alabama is the team on the offensive.
The Crimson Tide have targeted a pair of Kentucky commits recently. Yes, you read that correctly. Alabama offered a scholarship to three-star quarterback Mac Jones last month and most recently extended an offer to four-star defensive end James Hudson. Kentucky recruiting coordinator Vince Marrow had some candid thoughts on the latest developments.
It's funny some coaches didn't like recruiting Ohio now they are somewhere else and they are all up in it. Let's battle go Big Blue.

Marrow will have his hands full trying to protect a Wildcats recruiting class that is currently ranked No. 9 in the country, according to 247Sports.com. A strong incoming recruiting class plus a bowl game appearance could keep coach Mark Stoops off of the hot seat.
