So far throughout the 2020 football season, the Kentucky Wildcats offense has been struggling to move the ball, and struggling might be an understatement. Through the past two games, Kentucky has managed just 13 points and one touchdown, and has not gained more than 300 yards since the Ole Miss game.
But 2021 wide receiver recruit Christian Lewis is ready to change the offense next season when he arrives on campus. Lewis is one of the top players in the state of Alabama and is rated as the No. 49 wide receiver in the country, according to 247 Sports.
During his senior season so far, Lewis has caught 36 balls for over 600 yards and ten scores, which has garnered the attention of other SEC schools trying to lure Lewis away from Lexington.
Despite Kentucky’s non-existent passing game this season, the potential is there for next season, as Kentucky will bring in Lewis, along with four-star Lexington native Dekel Crowdus. The Wildcats will also be getting dynamic play-maker Michael Drennen more touches, as they should, and Louisville native Izayah Cummings is waiting alongside Drennen to touch the field and make a difference.
The key to a successful offense for next season is keeping Lewis and Crowdus committed for next season. Crowdus chose the Wildcats over the likes of Ohio State and Oklahoma, so you have to wonder if those schools have come knocking again watching Kentucky stink it up.
Early signing period is Dec. 16.
