Position: Quarterback

Hometown: Lexington, Ky

Thoughts: How in the crap is this guy a true freshman? The name Kyle Bolin has been circulating numerous UofL websites for over two years since he originally pledged his love to the Cards back in September of 2011. Kyle was never one to shy away from his commitment or his pursuit of others to join him in Cardinal red. As some may remember, Kyle did suffer a setback last season with a torn ACL just a few games into his senior year. Kyle has seemed to rebound well and is fighting to get back in the mix. Kentucky.com had an interesting story pertaining to Bolin's recruitment from the school down the road. The Cliff Notes version is that Kyle went to UK's camp as a sophomore, performed well, and even though was told he would get an offer did not. His theory was that they were trying to downplay him to other universities and swoop in later...

"Then UK can come in really hard junior year and get you to go to school there," he says. "It's a good strategy for a guy who was a big UK fan. But, see, I wasn't a big UK fan."

Oops. Kentucky's misfortune turned into a great addition for the Cards. Show Kyle some love, as we all know he's endured more than his fair share from the blue crew the last two years. Welcome to the fam Bolin.

Sweet Tweet: I know Kyle used to have a twitter account but I couldn't find it anymore. Not sure if he shut it down or if I just suck at locating twitter accounts.Either way, enjoy this instead...

#14 Lyn Clark

Class: Freshman

Ht/Wt: 6-2/232

Position: Linebacker

Hometown: New Orleans, La

Thoughts: I'm excited about Lyn Clark. He was a 2/3 star prospect from various recruiting services but he has the speed and talent to be a special linebacker. Lyn had over 100 tackles as a Senior last year, including 17 for loss, meaning he gets in the backfield quite a bit. I'm not sure how much impact Clark might have this year, but based upon his play during the few days of camp he's not hurting his chances. Preston even called out Lyn as one of the freshman who seem to be "getting it" at this early stage. I've been wrong before, but I think we got a special player with Clark.

Sweet Tweet:

Of course you are Lyn....coach wouldn't want it any other way.
