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.
