Denzil Ware will return to Kentucky for his senior season

It’s official: Denzil Ware is returning to Kentucky for his senior season.

Earlier today, Josh Allen hinted that Ware would also be coming back to school, but the talented linebacker just confirmed the news on Twitter moments ago:

After Ware was suspended from the Music City Bowl, there was uncertainty about his future at Kentucky, but today’s tweet makes it pretty clear. He, Allen, and Mike Edwards have all publicly declared they’re coming back, leaving Jordan Jones as the only one yet to make an official announcement, although Allen included Jones in his comments earlier this afternoon.

Welcome back, Denzil. Let’s win the East.

    This is great news! D-Ware is a very important player on this defense and I am glad to have him back!

    I want to be careful and not ordain Wilson as the second coming, but I’d like to think that his committal has helped in convincing a lot of the players to return. If he is as good as many think, he could take a lot of pressure off of the defense. Plus, Baker (hopefully) coming back, Snell, and Conrad…Might be the most complete team UK has had in a while. But like someone said in an earlier post, Stoops has to deliver next season. The most veteran D in the country (prob not, but it should be close), and third year straight year with the O-coordinator, a solid QB…I think there’s a pretty good chance UK will be much improved over this year in every statistical category. Except FGs…MacGinnis leaving is a huge loss and I can’t expect anybody to just come in and replace his % immediately.

      MacGinnis was the best FG kicker I have seen at UK since Joe Worley, but I wouldn’t underestimate Chance Poore. The dropoff may not be as bad as people think.

      With all these starters returning, the onus is on Eddie Gran and Darin Hinshaw to produce an improved passing game. With Snell back and EJ Price coming in, everybody knows the Cats will be able to run the football. Having a new QB and a young group of WRs is a challenge, but Gran has a lot of weapons to work with. I think we might get a positive surprise.

      Honestly with as much hype as there is around Wilson, I wouldn’t be surprised if Hoak was named the starter coming out. Hoak has what, 3 years in the system now? That’s a massive advantage even if the talent gap between the two might be large. I see it being a tossup at the QB spot and I’m confident either one could get the job done

    I never thought I would say it but is it football season yet?
