Kentucky football fans should be comfortable saying they have one of the better wide receiver groups in college football this year. Sophomores Barion Brown and Dane Key both had incredible campaigns as freshmen and should only continue to improve.
Then there’s veteran Tayvion Robinson who is returning for another year to provide a security blanket for quarterback Devin Leary and sophomore Jordan Dingle should get more looks in the passing game with Liam Coen back in the mix.
But there’s one more name that UK fans need to keep an eye on. Freshman wideout Anthony Brown is in line to make an impact this fall. He possesses the physical traits to be a very good player, but his early enrollment is what will help him stand out this year.
After Barion Brown, Key and Robinson, there’s not much competition for snaps. Anthony Brown should be able to step right in as a gadget-type player for the Wildcats. In fact, when assistant head coach Vince Marrow was asked about Brown at practice this week, he said he sees a lot of Wan’Dale Robinson. Any comparison to a WR who set the school record for both catches and reception yards for a season is quite the complement for a true freshman.
It’s looking like Leary should flourish in Coen’s offense and be able to spread the ball all over the field. One would have to think, considering Brown’s talents, that the freshman wideout will be heavily involved this fall.
