Kentucky Coaches Believe Terry Wilson Will Play Right Away


Omaha.com

Did Kentucky just find their next quarterback?  Terry Wilson’s commitment to Kentucky has made next year’s battle to be QB1 exponentially more intriguing.

Already projected to be a three-horse race between Drew Barker, Gunnar Hoak and Danny Clark, now Eddie Gran and Darin Hinshaw have another thoroughbred.  Just like Stephen Johnson, Wilson is a dual-threat weapon who proved to be a proficient playmaker at the junior college level.  Johnson wasn’t expected to play right away but an injury from Barker forced him into action.  The Kentucky coaches told Wilson he needs to be ready to play right away.

“They’re talking about me playing right away,” Wilson told the Herald-Leader on Sunday. “I just have to come in, grind, and I have to take it. They’re not going to give anything to me. I’m definitely going to have to go out there and showcase what I can do. And they like what I can do, so I have to go out there and prove it.”

The second-ranked junior college quarterback in America will have to earn the title QB1.  Touchdown Terry has all of the tools to do just that when he arrives on campus in January.

    Hoak be gone. This is the only route this coaching staff can utilize because they can’t coach players up but they can keep the Toilet Bowls coming along with contract extensions and salary increases LOL!

    Wow! Nice!

    It’s between Hoak, Wilson, and Clark. Should be a spring worth watching!

    Haters gonna hate, hate, hate.

    The battle will be between barker, wilson, and hoak.

    Welcome 2 Armchair QBBBN, TD3!

    As for the others: Barker to Georgetown & won’t start there.
    Hoak is gone.
    Clark is a gamer & will be ready to compete. I like his chances vs TD3.
    Walker Wood is the sleeper in this mix & He’s a winner.

    funny that Barker was “the future”, then Hoak, and now we expect both to transfer. I think it speaks much more that the staff doesnt seem to have any confidence in the guys on the team, much more than is says that Wilson is that good.

    I dont have much trust in the decision making of this staff.

    Uk has a 25% chance to beat Northwestern, the lowest chance to win than any other team in the SEC.Meanwhile, the OC that came to UK interviewing for the open spot is in the Playoffs. Same guy we turned away for Shannon Dawson.

    1. abobicesaevior

      We didn’t turn Riley away. He chose the Oklahoma job over UK.

    2. TBW3011

      Not sure if we turned him away or not, but we hired Gran before Riley went to OU. So your second sentence is false.

      clueless

    This is what happens at almost every D1 program…you bring in talented QB’s every year and have an actual competition. This isn’t basketball where players are guaranteed playing time because they were a good rating out hs

    Another thoroughbred? Not sure about this player but there are not too many thoroughbreds on the current team.

  12. BigBlueBass

    Barker who?

  13. kjd

    The coaching staff seems to have gone to the dual threat QB vs a passing QB. I see Hoak transferring because of this.
    If all they’re looking for is numbers comparable to Stephen Johnson’s then Wilson will probably learn on the job.
    Will still not have proven depth at QB or RB next season.
    Next fall will be interesting.

    Dude ur comment is ridiculous wilson is much more athletic with more size than Johnson there absolutely is no comparison.. wilson will be the starter from day one no questions asked this guy is the real deal.

    1. kjd

      Duuuude…….size and athleticism doesn’t automatically result in better stats. What I’m saying is, Johnson’s stats weren’t great so they’ll probably play him right away, and let him learn on the fly. Can probably at least match Johnson’s with better stats to follow. Garden City CC isn’t SEC Div 1 caliber ball. There’ll be a learning curve.

  15. TBW3011

    This nickname is going to look pretty stupid if he doesn’t win the job.

  16. catdaddyd

    Doesn’t hold the ball like a passer.

  17. notFromhere

    If you want to see football-ignorant comments, KSR is THE place to be.

    Oklahoma has signed 40 4star recruits the past 3 years. Just ignorant to compare UK and OU at this point.

    Doesn’t matter how he holds the ball. It matters if he completes passes. Every good or great QB does not hold the ball exactly the same, nor do they throw it the same. Watch some football.

    The coaching staff, like others around the nation, is taking the best player available to them at that position. Says nothing about those already on the roster. This isn’t basketball nor is it about a coach that can only remember more than 7 players on His roster.

    UK has great depth at RB and QB NEXT SEASON, if everyone stays that can at those spots. There will be at least 5 QBs on the roster if Wilson comes and No one leaves. Snell, King, Rose, and Koback is a good stack of backs. At least one more in the class as well. Where does this crap come from?

    Oh, wait… you’re listening to the radio show. nm

    1. kjd

      If stable of RBs is so awesome, why did we primarily see only Snell?
