Tubby Smith was not the only University of Kentucky coach that had a bad weekend.
Football coach Rich Brooks didn't lose a game that no one thought he should, like Smith did when Georgia upset UK in Rupp Arena. But Brooks did lose one key recruit - Louisville receiver Mario Urrutia - and another - Mason County quarterback Dustin Grutza - that could come back to haunt him.
And if that wasn't enough to ruin Brooks' weekend, Kentucky was not able to persuade Louisville Trinity quarterback Brian Brohm to make another unofficial visit to Lexington to hear one last recruiting pitch from the Wildcats before he makes either Louisville, Notre Dame, Tennessee or Kentucky his college choice.
Urrutia verbally committed to Kentucky during his junior season. The 6-5, 195-pound Urrutia, who runs the 40-yard dash in 4.6 seconds, had 62 receptions for 1,163 yards and 16 touchdowns at Fern Creek last year. He was one of the big receivers that Brooks said Kentucky desperately needed to make its offense more effective against Southeastern Conference competition.
