After five months of being in the hospital and then to a rehab facility, Kentucky Wildcats star linebacker has returned home and is with his family. His family members took to social media to post picture of Oats being welcome back home.
Making this weekend even more special for Oats and his family was Kentucky having a masterful defensive performance against Mississippi State en route to a 22-point win for #22.
Call it whatever you want but the fact @jamindavis25 had a huge INT and a career-high 11 tackles on the night he was wearing No. 22 to honor teammate Chris Oats can't be ignored. #22OatsStrong | @UKFootball— Matt May (@MattMayKY) October 11, 2020
The Kentucky football program nor his family has yet to disclose any details regarding what medical condition Oats has been dealing with. His condition is not COVID-19 related, but is indeed considered serious.
His return home is certainly a good sign, as well as the $26,000+ raised by Keaton Upshaw’s GoFundMe fundraiser to go towards Oats’ medical bills. Please continue to keep Oats and his family in your thoughts and prayers as he battles his way back to full strength.

This is really, really good content.

What’s your prediction for tonight’s game?
You can’t miss this.
The Wildcats are still working hard to add to their 2021 class, but how are their 2022 efforts looking as we head into the fall signing period?
Based on his new contract, this fine is pocket change.
Who wants to be next?
Texas can rack up the points but sure can’t stop anyone.
The 6-11 Lively has cemented himself as a top prospect nationally in the 2022 recruiting class.
And it continues to spread like a wild fire.
Not the greatest idea during a nation wide pandemic.
