Stoops said he's very excited about the incoming class of players.

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Mark Stoops and the University of Kentucky signed 21 players on day one of the college football early signing period. The period runs through Friday.

Of those 21, four are from Louisville: Demontae Crumes of Butler High School, Shawn-Kel Knight-Goff of Doss High School, Jared Casey of Ballard High School and J.J. Weaver of Moore High School.

“I feel very good about this class," Stoops said. "I feel they’re excellent football players, excellent people, very good in the classroom. Feel good about going in state and getting some of the top prospects in state to stay home. Definitely some difference makers that were very important to us.”

The Cats could still add a player or two before Friday night.
