UK football wants YOU to be the next great wide receiver

While Joker Phillips uses creepy photoshops to lure wide receivers to Florida, UK has put together a montage of the program’s best wide receivers over the past few decades to encourage recruits to “Come be a hero.” Check out the latest video from KyWildcatsTV, which will get your blood pumping and hopefully, persuade the nation’s top recruits to come be the next great wide receiver at UK.

    This staff is putting forth great effort…its TBD on the results, but you have to be impressed with their initial steps

    It’s not crude MS Paint drawings of a Batman villain, but it’ll do.

    Awesome video! Way better than Georgia and what Joker is doing. I agree (2), some NFL highlights would have been great, too.

    Isn’t Keenan Burton the all time leading receiver in UK history?

    This is awesome! Two of these guys are legit stars in the NFL, while another is catching passes from Peyton Manning on a weekly basis. This is quite a list of guys.

    I think they should have added some clips of Aaron Boyd from that Kent St. game last year!

    Where the heck is Keenen freakin Burton?

    What about Derek Abney

    When Dickey Lyons Jr. caught the TD, the ref was signaling it incomplete? What about Abney and Burton? Seriously, it doesn’t take that much too much to investigate our history.

    Why not put some of Randall Cobb’s great TD runs or returns??? only him in the end zone i think this video could be made a lot better…. Never showed a great catch and TD run… only catches and td’s in the endzone.

    #16, One of the greatest catches ever, ref was overruled on replay.

    Derek Abney was a great kick returner. His production at WR was not as distinguished. Include Keenan Burton? Yes, a case could easily be made for that. And, yes, clips from pro grames would have been nice, but UK probably would had to have gained NFL and team approval for that—maybe not the easiest thing to do.

    I find it telling no one mentioned Joker Phillips.

    my boy abney was a great kick returner, but i was the star of battleship lorenzen’s fleet.

    Agreed with above… Why not take Lyons out and add burton then put an nfl clip or two in there. Cool video, but could have had a lot more impact…

    Abney and Burton please

    Whatever on who is missing. It’s not for hall of fame election. It’s a recruiting/promotion video. And that gave me goose bumps

    Riveting video…but am I alone here in wishing Aaron Boone would’ve gotten some love?
