Going into the season, Kentucky’s biggest question mark was likely the secondary.
The Cats lost five defensive backs to the NFL, a group that essentially manned the backline of the defense since they were freshman. Make no mistake, Kentucky has recruited a lot of talent in the secondary, but those players lack a lot of game experience.
The loss of Davonte Robinson for the year to an injury is awful news for Kentucky. Robinson is very talented and possessed probably the most in-game experience. He was also versatile and could play multiple positions.
Now without him in the fold, the young players will have to step up and show their talent. Otherwise, Kentucky could be in deep trouble this year.
A lot of questions will have to be answered this season about the secondary. Coach Stoops, Brad White, and Clinkscale will have their hands full.
