Not only was today a great day for Kentucky basketball, there was a lot of football news coming out of Rupp Arena. Kentucky hosted 24 recruits on official visits and brought some members of the current football team onto the court during a timeout. Benny Snell took this time to say “We’re going to Nashville. We’re going to get this W. I promise.” The most interesting football related thing that happened at Rupp today was that Ed Reed was in attendance.
This could just be a friendly gesture by Mark Stoops as he was Reed’s DB coach in college. Some have suspicions that the sure to be Hall of Famer is interested in the 10th coaching spot available on the coaching staff. There were rumors a couple years ago of Reed being interested in the job but he chose otherwise. Could he be interested once again? I’m not sure but it is pretty interesting that Stoops would have him there on his biggest recruiting weekend of the year. While we don’t know if this means anything at this time, it’s certainly something to keep an eye on.
