UK Wildcats News: Will Kentucky flip Jacob Smith and Jerod Smith from Michigan Wolverines? – A Sea Of Blue

Filed under:
Positive buzz is growing that the Cats could flip the four-star twin brothers.
The tables may be turning in the Kentucky Wildcats’ favor with a pair of four-star recruits that have made their return to the bluegrass state as positive buzz continues to build.
Jacob Smith and Jerod Smith began their high school careers at Somerset High School before transferring to Windsor (Conn.) Loomis Chaffee School, which is essentially a prep school.
Now, the current Michigan Wolverines commits are back in Kentucky and will be playing at Corbin High School this season.
On Friday’s episode of Kentucky Sports Radio, Matt Jones reported that there is some scuttlebutt flying around that Kentucky has a real chance of flipping the twin brothers.
“Kentucky might be about to flip these guys in the very near future,” Jones said.”
Despite being committed to Michigan, there has always been a big interest in Kentucky and now the brothers are 90 miles from campus and have official visits that can be used to visit Kentucky.
Jacob Smith is currently ranked as the No. 16 overall weakside defensive end, while Jerod Smith is ranked as the No. 24 overall strongside defensive end, according to Rivals.
With the twin brothers back in Kentucky, this is now a recruitment that BBN will want to pay close attention to as Mark Stoops and his staff will look to flip the Michigan commits.
I’m calling for Kentucky to land its 2nd QB commit in 2 months next week. The Cats should get an early start in the class of 2025.

Stone Saunders threw for 3,583 yards and 54 TDs last year for a state title team in Pennsylvania.
