The Kentucky Wildcats have just one game left in the 2020 regular season and that is against the South Carolina Gamecocks this Saturday night.
There are a lot of questions around this team heading into the offseason like; will the coaching staff remain the same after the offensive struggles, who will the Cats add to the roster for 2021, and many other questions.
However, as you know the NCAA has granted a blanket waiver for fall and winter athletes so that this year doesn’t count against their eligibility meaning all seniors can come back if they want to.
We still have no clue who or if any seniors on the team will return in 2021, but defensive lineman Phil Hoskins said he is considering it.
Hoskins is already a 6th year senior this season for the Cats and according to Nick Roush of Kentucky Sports Radio, Hoskins may be coming back for a 7th season.
“I’ve given thoughts about it, that way I could set the record in the Guinness Book of World Records for longest college football player.”

While setting a record for longest college football player sounds appealing, Hoskins would be a huge benefit to the Cats’ defensive line next season and would add some very experienced depth to what has been an outstanding unit in 2020.
We will see in the coming months if Hoskins decides to return in 2021 and if any of the other seniors on the team decide to follow in his footsteps and return for another season.
