UK Football: The Lexington Herald Leader reports today that the UK football team's recruiting class of 2014 grew by two more players Monday night, and the Wildcats' latest commitments have them in unfamiliar territory in the national rankings. Ohio safeties Darius West and Mike Edwards both committed to Kentucky during campus visits. THey are the 13th and 14th from next year's class to join up with Mark Stoops and his new coaching staff. UK moved to No. 6 in Rival.com's national team rankings as a result of the two commitments, an unprecedented position for a program that has consistently been ranked at or near the bottom of the SEC. The Cats' class of 2014 - the frist one completely built by Stoops and his assistants - is now ranked ahead of such traditional football powers as Alabama, Florida State, Louisiana State, Ohio State and Florida.
