While basketball has been at the forefront the last couple months, the Kentucky Wildcats football team has been hard at work in spring practice and tonight, fans will get their first look at the 2019 Wildcats on the football field.
Tonight is the Spring Game, and while it is an exhibition, it is a nice opportunity to see the players hit the field and see who has really stepped it up in spring practice while seeing other who have not stepped up when called upon.
We will get our first look at the QBs, particularly Terry Wilson. He struggled a little in last year’s spring game, but I would like to see him use his arm on some deep passes in this game. It will also be interesting to see which wide receiver makes a name for himself going into the summer and fall camp, as well as seeing Kentucky’s backfield options add up.
Then it will also be interesting to see how the newcomers in the secondary respond, as well as looking for new faces that will be surprise contributors going into the fall camp.
There isn’t always a whole lot to take away from the spring game, but it is a great fan opportunity and a chance for the players to shine and show their improvement over the spring.
Hopefully there will be a solid crowd there, cheering on the Cats after such a strong season last year.

Looking over Kentucky's spring football roster again and there's a ton of size on this team. Eighteen guys listed are listed at 300 pounds or more. Eleven players are listed at 6-foot-6 or taller.— Derek Terry (@DerekSTerry) April 11, 2019
