Alex Raynor announces return to Kentucky

The Cats will get their kicker back for one last ride.

NCAA Football: Kentucky at Vanderbilt Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

The Kentucky Wildcats are gearing up for spring practice in a few short months, as they prepare for the 2024 college football season.

The Cats finished 7-6 this past year and had fans feeling a different way depending on the week. One thing all of the BBN can agree on, though, is that the kicking game took a major step forward this past year.

Now, that trajectory should continue as a key returnee was announced this afternoon.

Who are we talking about? None other than Alex Raynor. The UK placekicker took to Twitter to announce the news.

The Georgia Southern transfer had an impressive first season in Lexington in which he converted 10/11 field-goal attempts, including a long of 50. The point after was basically automatic, as well, as he converted 48 of 49 extra-point attempts.

With a second season in Lexington now on the docket, let’s see if Raynor can continue to be a weapon for Mark Stoops and this Kentucky offense.
