LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Mark Stoops didn’t have to go far to recruit Kentucky’s best-rated class in school history.

The second-year Wildcats coach on Wednesday announced a 28-member class including 11 prospects from Stoops’ native Ohio, along with the state of Kentucky’s top four players, one of the program’s best showings in-state.

The group includes 11 four-star prospects resulting in best-ever rankings by Rivals.com (14th) and Scout.com (20).

Leading the in-state contingent are quarterback Drew Barker of Burlington; defensive tackles Matt Elam of Elizabethtown and Adrian Middleton of Bowling Green; and defensive end Lloyd Tubman of Louisville, who announced his decision to play for the Wildcats on Wednesday.

Fifteen defensive players dominate this class, including six linemen and four linebackers, critical to improving a team coming off a 2-10 season.
