This morning on KSR, Mark Stoops reiterated he hasn’t decided which quarterback will start vs. Central Michigan, Terry Wilson or Gunnar Hoak, but senior tight end CJ Conrad said Wilson’s speed could give Kentucky an extra dimension this fall.
“He throws it a lot better than people think he does and he’s extremely athletic,” Conrad said of Wilson, who reportedly shined in Saturday’s scrimmage. “If he was our quarterback at the time, he could be the fastest player on the field. He’s that fast. He’s extremely fast. That’s what I told my dad, if Terry is the quarterback, he would be the fastest on the field. He’s really fast. But he also throws it. He makes really good decisions. He’s not sporadic or anything. Overall, just a good head on his shoulders, good kid.”
Conrad also doled out plenty of praise for Hoak, who he said always makes the smart plays.
“He’s been here the longest, knows the offense extremely well. Gunnar has a nice touch on his passes. He’s not one of those guys that’s going to zip it in there, but he has a nice touch. He’s smart. He makes all the smart throws. He knows what he’s doing. He’s a quiet leader, sort of like Stephen [Johnson].”
Danny Clark is behind Wilson and Hoak in the race, but Conrad said the redshirt freshman’s future at Kentucky is bright.
“He can sling it. He’s the complete opposite of Gunnar. If there’s a tight window, he’s going to throw it. He’s also pretty athletic, runs pretty well.”
Sadly, we don’t have a ton of highlights of Terry at UK yet, so until we do, watch him burn up the turf at Garden City last year:
