NCAA Football: Belk Bowl-Virginia Tech vs Kentucky Jim Dedmon-USA TODAY Sports

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.

Guess who’s home

Posted by KeAirra Oats on Friday, October 9, 2020

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.

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.
