Many fans (myself included) were a little bummed out on Wednesday about the Wandale Robinson news.
However, yesterday was a good bounce back day for Kentucky Football.
The Wildcats landed a commitment from Jared Casey, the 4-star linebacker out of Ballard High School in Louisville who recently decommitted from Oregon. Casey is one of the best players in the state and has a high ceiling to be a major difference maker for Kentucky moving forward.
And then last night, Josh Allen was presented with the Bednarik Trophy as the best defensive player in college football. It was an exciting award for Allen to win and a testament to just how dominant he was this year, beating out Quinnen Williams from Alabama and Clelin Ferrell from Clemson for the award. Both are projected to go in the first few picks of the NFL Draft.
Allen definitely made the right decision to come back to Kentucky. He returned, worked on getting prepared physically and mentally, and then led the team to a historic season while putting up record breaking numbers and watching himself skyrocket up draft boards.
It was an exciting evening for Kentucky Football fans to welcome a new player into the class and celebrate the great accomplishments of one of the best defensive players to come through the UK Football program.
Big congratulations to Jared Casey and Josh Allen on their big news from yesterday.
