Kentucky landed a huge commitment when Drew Barker, an in-state quarterback ranked No. 6 at his position nationally, picked up a Wildcats hat on Friday.

The media knew it. Fans knew it. And the school's coaching staff knew it.

Here are the online reactions of UK assistant coaches, all coming minutes after Barker's decision. Got to give them massive credit for being able to publicly celebrate the occasion without actually naming names (due to NCAA rules on unsigned recruits).

Considering how much ground this staff made up to land one of the nation's top recruits -- and one of the best quarterbacks to complement the No. 24 wide receiver and No. 22 running back -- they deserve to go wild over this.

Return of the Air Raid is underway.
