ESPN.com has a recap of all the recruiting classes in the SEC and the worldwide leader in Favre gave the UK recruiting class a B- grade overall. Kentucky is ranked ahead of Vanderbilt and Mississippi State on the list and received the same grade as Ole Miss and South Carolina.  Here is what ESPN Recruiting had to say about the Cats:
10. Kentucky Wildcats Top prospect: OT Zach West (Lexington, Kent./Lexington Christian Academy) is a very good tackle prospect with the size, short-area quickness and athleticism to develop into a very good run- and pass-blocker. Name to remember: Give RB Marcus Caffey (Atlanta/Grady) a year or two to build up his frame, because with added bulk and power, he could be a very good every-down college back. Breakdown: In his first recruiting class, Joker Phillips focused on offensive line and keeping the top in-state prospects home. Two of the Wildcats' top commitments are future centerpieces on the offensive line. Top-25 tackles West and Darrian Miller (Lexington, Ky./Bryan Station) have great size and upside. There are several defensive upgrades as well, particularly at safety. The Wildcats went into Illinois for four-star prospect Glen Faulkner (East Saint Louis, Ill./East Saint Louis), an underrated defensive back with a lot of physical tools and savvy.
ESPN.com ranks Kentucky as the 26th best class overall, yet some of you are still disappointed.  This isn't Alabama, people. Scout.com ranks Kentucky as the 32nd best class overall. Go Cats.
