Earlier this weekend, the Kentucky Wildcats got great news with the announcement that left tackle Landon Young was returning for his senior season.
The good news continued on Sunday, as defensive tackle Quinton Bohanna announced he too would be returning for a senior season.
Bohanna has easily been one of the best defensive lineman of the Mark Stoops era. The 361-pound mammoth has been an absolute beast in the middle of UK’s defense, and he should be one of the SEC’s best defenders in 2020.
Had he declared for the draft, Bohanna would have likely heard his name called at some point on Day 3, so it was wise for him to return and potentially boost his stock enough to be a Day 2 or even higher selection.
It was imperative for UK that Bohanna return, as they’re already losing starting defensive linemen TJ Carter and Calvin Taylor to graduation, while the school is hoping to get a sixth year of eligibility for Phil Hoskins.
