Which key football Cats will be back for the 2021 season?

With the Kentucky Wildcats’ football season coming to an end on Saturday, the questions of whether some players plan to stay or go have been answered.

The good news for head coach Mark Stoops and his staff is that while they already know they’ll lose several key members of the team, they’ve been recently informed that several other key members will be staying for another year.

Davonte Robinson, DeAndre Square, Josh Ali, Josh Paschal, Justin Rigg, Quandre Mosely and Zach Johnson have all announced they’ll be staying. While many of these returning faces will help the defensive side of the football, Ali and Rigg will undoubtedly be a plus for an offense that can only get better next year.

The only departure of note seems to be EDGE rusher Jamar “Boogie” Watson, though it comes as no surprise after a powerful season.

Other decisions Kentucky is waiting on include tackle Darian Kinnard, running back Chris Rodriguez Jr., and linebacker Jamin Davis.
