It’s not quite AP All-American or First Team All-SEC but it’s some national recognition nonetheless. Kentucky senior wide receiver Chris Matthews was named to the 2010 All-Juco Transfer team by Rivals. The man some call the second coming of Stevie Johnson transferred to Kentucky from Los Angeles Harbor College and he’s been a huge asset to the offense in his two seasons in Lexington.
Matthews finished out the 2010 regular season in the top 5 in the SEC in yards and receptions per game. He tied South Carolina’s Alshon Jeffery for the most receiving touchdowns in the conference with nine. He’s joined on the All-JUCO list by Heisman winner Cam Newton, who led the SEC in stolen property receptions with one Dell Inspiron.
Yeah, it’s that kind of news day. What did you expect on the Sunday after Christmas?
