Landing Ray Davis in the portal last year was a big win for the Kentucky Wildcats.
This past season, Davis rushed for more than 1,000 yards on 5.7 yards per carry and totaled 20 touchdowns (13 rushing, seven receiving).
While that’s a hard standard to live up to, the Wildcats are hoping they have found another high-level running back in the portal.
Chip Trayanum is coming over from Ohio State, looking to become a #1 back in Lexington.
One college football analyst, Mike Farrell, thinks Trayanum can have Davis-like success in Lexington.
In his most recent fact-or-fiction, he said Trayanum can be the next Ray Davis at Kentucky.
I love Trayanum’s upside as a big and physical runner, and while he’s not as explosive or shifty as Davis, he can be an elite one-cut runner for Kentucky and amass over 1,000 yards next season. Davis was a huge transfer get for Kentucky as a feature back from Vanderbilt while Trayanum was overshadowed a bit at Ohio State, so they are different situations, but I think this is a perfect fit based on what Davis did at Kentucky.
There are obviously some differences between the two. Davis established himself as one of the top backs in the SEC by rushing for more than 1,000 yards in a season at Vanderbilt, while Trayanum was the #2 back for the Buckeyes.
But with an expanded role, Trayanum could really blossom at Kentucky.

A lot to like about the newest Cat.
The Anthony Davis block will always be a classic.
Antonio Reeves fits the bill.
The former Cat is getting another shot in the league.
A big ruling.
It’s looking like the Super Bowl is coming back to SoFi.
If true, the end of an era.
It’ll be the first game in South America.
