Add defensive back Quandre Mosely to the list of Kentucky Wildcats football players that will be returning for next season.
Mosely announced his intentions via Twitter on Sunday:
Mosely is taking advantage of the extra season of eligibility being granted by the NCAA for athletes due to coronavirus. Mosely wasn’t able to impact the Wildcats’ defense much, playing behind a stacked secondary in 2020. He recorded just 19 total tackles and two pass breakups. That included one tackle in the Gator Bowl against North Carolina State yesterday.
Mosley made a bigger impact in 2019, finishing with 24 tackles, three pass deflections, one sack, one tackle for loss and one interception. He can play safety or cornerback, the latter being where he has the chance to play most next season with Kelvin Joseph and Brandin Echols departing.

So far, the Kentucky defense is loading up for next season, returning almost every major contributor aside from leading pass-rusher Boogie Watson. Josh Paschal, Josh Ali, DeAndre Square and Davonte Robinson are just some of the Wildcats returning for next year, while several key players are still mulling decisions.
2021 is shaping up to be a, on paper, a good looking year for Kentucky football.
