Today, UK Football released it’s depth chart that it will head into the 2012 season with. One surprising thing was the positioning at wide receiver. A guy like Demarco Robinson, who caught nine passes for 146 yards and two touchdowns in April’s Blue/White Spring game, was not listed as a starter at any of the three wide receiver positions. Many thought speedster Daryl Collins would be assured a starting job as well, but he’s listed behind senior Gene McCaskill. Here’s exactly how the breakdown goes:
Gene McCaskill or
Coach Phillips was asked about Robinson’s playing time at today’s pressure and here’s what he had to say: “I wouldn’t read anything into that. Demarco Robinson, I’m not going to say how he made a play every day, (and now is) not getting any opportunities. He will play and play a lot.” Also, expect for true freshmen A.J. Legree and DeMarcus Sweat to push for playing time throughout the season. The Wildcats are as deep at wide receiver as I can remember, so expect the very best options on the field on for every play.
