College Gameday was back yesterday morning and ESPN’s Desmond Howard let the country know that he’s high on Kentucky going into the season.
As the Gameday crew talked about their potential sleepers for the College Football Playoff, Howard gave his vote to the Cats.
“I like Kentucky. I think Kentucky has a chance to be a sleeper team,” Howard said. “Especially if you look at their quarterback Will Levis. I think in March he’s going to start climbing up the draft boards. Offensively, they brought in a new OC named Rich Scangarello. If you like the 49ers offense, you’re going to love what he’s going to bring to Lexington.”
Check out the clip below.
Penn State and Ole Miss were also mentioned as potential sleepers, but Howard was all-in on the Wildcats.
It has been pretty rare for Kentucky to get the kind of preseason hype that has been given to the Wildcats this offseason, so they’ll have to back it up on the field, but it’s good to see a national sports personality give some major love to the Cats.
Tweet of the Day
College Football is back, and a Kentuckian scores the first touchdown of the season.
Count me in on the JJ Weaver bandwagon.
Which running backs will emerge?
A few years ago, I would’ve never guessed Geno would be a starter in 2022.
A lot of storylines going into the season.
This gets even more interesting.
