Kentucky Football: National Signing Day Previewing the Wide Receivers

Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

Kentucky signed a great class of wide receivers, which will be needed for the high-paced offense Coach Neal Brown is known for running.

Next year's freshmen crop of receivers will be one of the best Kentucky football has signed in the modern recruiting service era (as is the case for this entire class). Dorian Baker is a receiver who has the potential for early playing given his size and speed; Blake Bone has uncoachable size and he had several offers from SEC schools; Thaddeus Snodgrass and TV Williams were both early enrollees who are already on campus training with the team; Garrett Johnson had one of the better senior years of any of this year's signees against great competition; and Darryl Long was signed as the tight end of this class who received interest from various B1G 10 schools.

The geographic make-up of this group is diverse. Baker, Long, and Snodgrass all hail from Ohio while Johnson is from Florida, Bone is from South Carolina, and Williams is from Texas. There is playing time to be taken at the receiver positions, especially if there is any further attrition during the offseason at this position. Baker and Bone will receive looks given their physical attributes, while Snodgrass will benefit from having spent spring and summer on campus learning the system and getting bigger, stronger, and faster. Coach Brown has stated in the past he likes to have 12-14 active receivers to run his offense and this signing class gets him closer to that range.
