Ranking every starting quarterback in college football seems like a long and tedious task, especially when it’s so nice outside, but Steven Lassan over at Athlon Sports looked that task right in the eye and said I’ll do you. Lassan accepted the challenge of studying and then power ranking the QB1 of every single team in the FBS, and today he released his findings with a ranking of all 130 starting quarterbacks in the country.
Kentucky’s Terry Wilson, who has not yet been named the starter for the Wildcats, came in at No. 95 on the list.
Here’s what was said about Wilson:
95. Terry Wilson, Kentucky
With Stephen Johnson departing Lexington, the Wildcats have a two-man competition for the starting quarterback job this offseason. Wilson – a former Oregon and junior college recruit – is battling sophomore Gunnar Hoak for the top spot on the depth chart. Wilson ranked as ESPN’s No. 5 junior college recruit for the 2017 signing class and joined the team prior to spring ball. Wilson completed 10 of 24 throws for 131 yards and added 14 rushing yards on five attempts in the spring game.
Wilson’s No. 95 ranking is the worst among SEC quarterbacks (although Florida’s Feleipe Franks was only one spot higher), and one of the worst among all Power 5 conferences.
But that’s okay because he’s a newcomer with a lot to prove. Show me a re-ranking after he’s played some games and then we’ll talk.
