While Kentucky Wildcats superstars such as Benny Snell and Josh Allen led the way to Kentucky’s 10-win season last fall, the two all-timers have departed for the NFL as the team will now look to their veterans to shoulder the weight of the 2019 season. Of course, quarterback Terry Wilson will look to command a more balanced offense.
However, for the Wildcats, the team’s success plan recently has came from their dominance in the trenches. Considering the fact Kentucky plays in the most elite football conference across the country, their elevated play on both the offensive and defensive front seven speaks to the hometown names who were recruited back in 2016.
Drake Jackson, Kash Daniel and Landon Young were all four-star recruits for the Wildcats in 2016, a class that also included Snell, starting safety Jordan Griffin, starting running back AJ Rose, starting EDGE rusher Boogie Watson, Davonte Robinson and others.
Daniel, Jackson and Young stand alone in the regard that they chose their home-state school over other major programs. With the Wildcats now receiving consistent recognition on a national level for their success, much credit should (deservedly) be handed to the Kentucky trio. Kentucky Wildcats TV released 35-minute a video recognizing the three.
