After a very underwhelming showing from starter Tyler Brause at weakside linebacker, look for freshman Khalid Henderson to steal some playing time against Kent State. Joker said today that Henderson has been taking reps with the first team in practice this week and a starter won’t be named until closer to game time.
Henderson and fellow true freshman Pancho Thomas will both see the field Saturday and one of the two could earn a starting spot if they perform well. This is a great opportunity for them to prove that young talent can outweigh age and experience.
Get ready for a very young UK defense.
