Kentucky Wildcats Quickies: Big Uglies Edition

UK Athletics

Following the commitment of four-star lineman Tate Leavitt, Kentucky is quickly building an offensive line capable of winning football games in the SEC.

All three of UK's offensive line commits in the Class of 2016 are rated as four-star prospects, including center Drake Jackson and tackle Landon Young. That's not even including Ohio State transfer Marcelys Jones, a four-star prospect coming out of high school, who will be eligible to play in 2016.

The future of Kentucky football is as bright as it's ever been, and it all starts with the big uglies up front.
