Terry Wilson will be the quarterback at the University of New Mexico this season, as he’ll look to end his college career on a high note with the Lobos.
As a super senior, this will be his sixth season of college football, and he’s hoping to make an impact on a program that has struggled the last several seasons.
Wilson took some time to catch up with Josh Moore of the Herald-Leader about his time at Kentucky.
“I’ve had the best years of my life at Kentucky,” Wilson said. “I’m thankful for all the opportunities I had. I’m thankful for everybody. The reporters, the fans, the community. I’m just very thankful to have been a part of something special like that.”
Kentucky football fans are also very grateful for the time he spent in Lexington as well.
Wilson left Kentucky with 17 wins as the starting quarterback, which is the second-most in school history. He helped lead victories at Florida in 2018 and at Tennessee in 2020, both of which broke decade-long losing streaks in those stadiums.
Last but not least, you can’t forget the Citrus Bowl win in 2018, as Wilson helped lead the Cats to a victory over Penn State to secure a 10-win season.
With all the highs, unfortunately, came some lows. During Wilson’s time, the offense struggled to move the football in the passing game. In the last three seasons, the highest Kentucky’s passing offense got was in 2018 when it ranked 117th out of 130 Power 5 programs.
“Not to sound selfish, but I didn’t like how I ended my career. I feel like I had more to put out there.”
Wilson will try to give it his all one last time this season. The Lobos open the season against Houston Baptist on September 2nd.
