Good Sunday morning!

Devin Leary is down at the Manning Passing Academy in Southern Louisiana and is already putting himself back on the college football radar after an injury riddled season last year.

Leary was tabbed as of the camp’s standout performers alongside a slew of other top SEC talent.

On3 had a write-up on Leary, as they were down at the Manning Camp:

Kentucky fans, buckle up. Leary is healthy again, and it showed on Friday night. Leary was among the more consistent passers during the skills challenge, and he looked far removed from the pectoral injury that limited him to six games at NC State a year ago. After transferring from the Wolfpack to the Wildcats, Leary is poised to take over Mark Stoops’ offense with Will Levis now in the NFL. Don’t forget, Leary threw for 3,433 yards, 35 touchdowns and five interceptions in 2021.

The QB1 for the Kentucky Wildcats is looking to continue the momentum that Will Levis started back in 2021 under first year offensive coordinator, Liam Coen.

Now, Coen is back in the fold for his second season/stint in Lexington with one of the best wide receiving corps that has ever graced the University of Kentucky. If Devin Leary can stay healthy, and that will be a job for Kentucky’s Big Blue Wall to take care of, then Kentucky could be poised for another special season.
