Rockin’ With The Rookies: Josh Clemons


You have heard all about freshman running back Josh Clemons and now is your chance to get to know him. In the first edition of’s Rockin’ With The Rookies, Josh Clemons talks about his tireless work ethic and how his father pushed him to put the video games down and become something. As Rock Oliver points out in the video, Josh Clemons showed for camp with an SEC running back’s body, something you don’t normally see on an incoming freshman. I caught a glimpse of Clemons on UK media day and the guy is a freak. He looks like a running back who is about to enter the NFL draft, not his first year of college.

Rockin’ With The Rookies is a new web series on UK’s blog, where strength and condition coach Rock Oliver will interview UK football’s newest players.

    I predict by the U of L game he is our starting running back. Everyone is high on Sanders, but he’s really small and hasn’t shown break-away speed like we saw with Locke. Gainer came in ranked high, but you don’t hear the coaches talking about him. Coshik is smaller than Sanders. I just think this is going to be our guy.

    What a great kid. Well spoken, seems very intelligent, sounds like he has great parents, and he’s built like a freakin’ mountain. Can’t wait to see him kicking a$$.

    Rock Oliver timed the kid at a 4.32 this summer in the 40. And that’s legit. UKs times are usually right on the dot with what the NFL times for our guys are when they go to camps or UK has its Pro Day. Heck, Cobb timed faster for the NFL than he ever did at UK. Oh, and Clemons also weighs 210 and looks like a Mack truck. Yes,he may get a few carries this year.

    Coaches are starting to talk about Gainer as well. Gainer/Clemons. Two headed monster. Forget about Sanders. I think Coshik is better than Sanders.
