On February 9th, 2013, the University of Kentucky held their Junior Day for football recruits. Replace the above band names with Winton Woods, Lakota East, Wayne, Colerain, Princeton and La Salle and the Atlantic Ocean with the Ohio River and you have what I have coined, the Ohio Invasion. This phenomenon, much like the British Invasion, introduces the best new recruiting talent to football fans in Big Blue Nation.
Here are a few of the Ohio recruits that took Kentucky by storm on Saturday.
|AIR RAID = Best KY QB Drew Barker with Best OH WR Derek Kief|
Can you imagine these two on the same team?
Check back tomorrow for a mega post containing details from Kentucky's Junior Day including pictures, interviews, stats, highlights, etc. Details of how Cincinnati/Northern KY recruits invaded the Big Blue Nation!
