New special teams/safeties coach Craig Naivar may give Kentucky another possible recruiter for the talent-rich state of Texas, noting that he’s recruited Houston for more than 15 years.
Naivar said his current recruiting areas are Atlanta and North and South Carolina. “I know I’ll be in the state of Texas,” he said after spring practice. “If I can help out there and wherever I need to go I’ll do a good job.”
Stoops hinted that UK may make more of a recruiting push in Texas.
“I think I need to look at that, with Texas A&M being in our league now and expanding a little bit the SEC brand through Texas with strong ties there,” the head coach said. “We’ve got a heck of a player in TV (Williams) out of there a year ago, so I think we’ll continue to dabble a little bit in Texas.”
