Wednesday Headlines: Taj Harris Edition

NCAA Football: Rutgers at Syracuse Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

Kentucky football head coach Mark Stoops was given credit for top-performance of all college football coaches this past weekend by Kirk Herbstreit.

Stoops didn’t waste any time being progressive and looking at next fall, either. Following Syracuse wide receiver Taj Harris entering the mid-season transfer portal on Monday, Kentucky made him an offer on Tuesday.

Kentucky’s top two wide receivers, Josh Ali and Wan’Dale Robinson, likely won’t be on the team next year due to graduation and the NFL Draft. Therefore, Harris could step in as the No. 1 option in a passing game that has been completely rejuvenated thanks to quarterback Will Levis and offensive coordinator Liam Coen.

Last season, Harris caught 58 balls for 733 yards and five touchdowns in 10 games. Harris appears to be durable, dangerous after the catch and reliable for big production. What a “get” this would be for the Wildcats.
