Last Monday, we took a closer look at eight football players who could possibly fill the four remaining spots in UK’s Class of 2014. Two of those players have since committed to the Wildcats, leaving two open spots in UK’s class.

Here’s where those eight players stand today:

Matt Elam, defensive tackle: UK’s top recruiting priority will choose either Kentucky or Alabama during a ceremony Thursday at his high school. Prediction: Elam commits to the Cats.

Derrick Kelly, offensive tackle: The former UK commitment took an official visit to Louisiana State over the weekend. He’ll take another trip this weekend, but Lexington is an unlikely destination. Florida, Georgia and Florida State are among the other schools that have offered. UK seems like a long shot to get him back in the mix.

Josh Krok, offensive tackle: COMMITTED TO KENTUCKY

Robert Olson, offensive tackle: UK still has not offered a scholarship and Olson remains somewhat of a backup plan for the Wildcats. Here’s a Q&A with the Minnesota native from a couple of days ago.

Randy Ramsey, athlete: He committed to Arkansas after visiting that school over the weekend. There’s still a possibility that the 6-foot-3 prospect will take an official visit to UK this weekend.

Kendall Randolph, cornerback: COMMITTED TO KENTUCKY

Jervontius Stallings, center: He took his official visit to Mississippi State over the weekend, but there was no commitment — a good sign for the Wildcats. Stallings’ recruitment could stretch all the way until signing day on Feb. 5, and UK and Mississippi State are the clear leaders. Other than Elam, he might be the most likely player on this list to pick the Cats, though the Bulldogs should probably be viewed as a slight favorite.

Lloyd Tubman, defensive end: He took his official visit to Penn State over the weekend and remains firm in his commitment to the Nittany Lions. The Louisville native will not take any more visits and it appears that UK has no chance of flipping his commitment before signing day.
