Kentucky signs 25 prospects, including 5 in-state players

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) Kentucky coach Mark Stoops didn't flinch, saying his fourth recruiting class is his best ever.

Considering his top-20 class in 2013 was the program's highest rated, declaring the 25-player group he announced Wednesday as even better speaks volumes about the talent level. And especially after consecutive 5-7 seasons could have worked against the Wildcats on the recruiting trail.

If anything, Stoops suggested that last year's finish after starting 4-1 helped convince five Kentucky prospects commit to helping the turnaround. The class includes three from the Lexington area - offensive lineman Landon Young, cornerback Davonte Robinson and center Drake Jackson - and comprises the highest in-state total since 2009.
