A big night for Mark Stoops, Neal Brown and UK football.

Two three-star prospects from Florida, Jeff Badet and Jojo Kemp, both announced Friday evening they are going to be Wildcats.

Badet, who is 5-11, 160 pounds, is a wide receiver from the Orlando area. He said he was excited to come to Lexington. What helped make up his mind were Stoops and Brown. Badet said Stoops came to his house to visit the day after Badet made his official visit to UK. That really impressed him.

Kemp, who Rivals says is the 10th best all-purpose running back in the country, is also from the Orlando area. He's 5-10 and 190 pounds. Rivals analysts have said that Kemp has the potential to be an SEC freshman of the year type player from the get-go, and have called him an 'elite back'.

These are two big gets for Stoops. Not only is he making inroads in Florida, but his coordinators are also getting the job done.
