Unfortunately, the Cats miss the cut.
Mark Stoops and the Kentucky Wildcats have been on a hot streak in recruiting, but you can’t win them all as the Cats miss the cut for one talented athlete in the 2022 class.
Four-star Kobi Albert is currently ranked as the No. 38 overall wide receiver in the 2022 class, and he cut his list to three on Wednesday.
It didn’t include the Cats.

Despite missing out on Albert, the Cats’ top receiver target is still Dane Key. According to Nick Roush of Kentucky Sports Radio, the Cats are also in the mix for wide receivers Brandon White, Jeremiah Dillon, and Jordan Anthony.
“White was a standout at one of UK’s Sunday Showcase camps, blowing by the competition as the fastest player on the field. He does not have the height, but the Cincinnati Moeller product has the speed Liam Coen has placed a premium on with his pass catchers. UK has recruited well from the Ohio perennial powerhouse. To bring Anthony or Dillon to Lexington, Sumrall must succeed against other SEC schools recruiting the exceptional athletes from Tylertown, Mississippi.”
While missing the cut for Albert is tough, this now gives a clear path to who the Cats could still add at the wide receiver position with Dane Key being the top priority.
