Kentucky has had a lot of good news lately with NFL Draft decisions, as linebacker Jordan Wright, QB Will Levis, running back Chris Rodriguez and linebacker Jacquez Jones announced their returns.
So within a 24-hour span, we’ll have gotten decisions from Kentucky’s top three linebackers, as well as its top running back.
We are hearing from more players every day about their decisions to either return for another season or enter the 2022 NFL Draft.
On Wednesday, DeAndre Square said that he has not yet reached a conclusion on what he plans to do, but we should be getting a decision soon.
“I’m putting a lot of thought into it. Stay tuned. A decision should be coming soon.”

Square has been one of the best defenders for Kentucky throughout his career as he has racked up 245 total tackles (20 for loss), 5.5 sacks, 4 pass deflections, 3 forced fumbles, and 2 interceptions in his 47 games.
As for the 2021 season, Square put up the best numbers of his career as he finished with 81 total tackles (9.5 for loss), 3 sacks, a forced fumble, and an interception to seal the Citrus Bowl victory over the Iowa Hawkeyes.
If Square ultimately decides to return for one final season, Mark Stoops and the Kentucky Wildcats will be getting a veteran leader back on the defensive side of the ball, and we should expect him to be one of the Cats’ best defensive players. Here’s to hoping we get to see it happen and that it helps Square become a higher pick in the 2023 NFL Draft.
So, do you think Square sticks around for one more year?
