There's very little overlap in the kids KY wants and our players. Namely, Curbelo. And he's already stated he's staying with us. And Washington is going to KY. So, this poaching worry is blown way out of proportion.We just need to hang on to the recruits/players we already have. Before we got OA...I never heard of him. (but then...ALL the guys we are going after now (except Chet) I have never heard of!
I think storr is the one to worry about despite what he has said since the departure of OA and ChinThere's very little overlap in the kids KY wants and our players. Namely, Curbelo.

As to our recruits, they won't offer Bass and I'm pretty comfortable that Storr is gonna be in O&B regardless of how highly ranked he ends up.
So I should ignore what Storr said himself and assume he's lying. Interesting.
How do I get one of these “camps” of my own?While I agree we should take what Storr said at face value...he could change his mind at any moment and it wouldn’t be lying. It’d just be a change of heart.
Here’s hoping that doesn’t happen!
And there is no reason to think differently unless we start to hear something from Storr’s camp.
The University of Kentucky paid a pretty penny to sign Orlando Antigua and Ron "Chin" Coleman away from Illinoiskentuckysportsradio.com
Antigua will see a $25,000 raise each year for three years leading to a $900,000 salary in 2023-24.
Coleman will receive a $50,000 raise each year through 2023-24.
this is a little lower than I expected. I’m honestlly disappointed
Any decent spin we could tell ourselves seems to be out the window, unfortunately. Considering where we seem to be in the AC search, I'd guess we aren't offering anywhere close to the money rumored.I think that's the appropriate reaction. Either we didn't actually offer $4 million/4yrs, and were cheapskates, or OA decided he'd rather earn $1.375 million less to work somewhere else. I'm honestly not sure which answer makes me feel less worse.
