Athlon sports released their All-SEC teams for the upcoming 2020 season and nine Kentucky Wildcats were selected to the four teams.

Kentucky was tied for sixth place in the SEC for most selections with both LSU and Tennessee with nine players apiece.

Both Drake Jackson and Darian Kinnard were named to the first-team, giving two Wildcats offensive linemen on first-team offense.

Max Duffy was also a first-team selection to the first-team specialists group.

Landon Young was named a second-team offensive selection, giving Kentucky three offensive linemen on the first two offensive teams.

Jamar Watson was named as the first Kentucky defensive player to the second-team defense squad.

Luke Fortner was named to the third-team offensive squad, giving the Wildcats yet another offensive lineman to earn the accolade.

A.J. Rose was named to the fourth-team offensive squad, along with both Quinton Bohanna and Yusuf Corker earning fourth-team defensive honors.

I think it is safe to say that Kentucky has some players for the upcoming season and the offensive line will be one of the best in the country.
