1. Who Terry Wilson Models his Game After
Terry Touchdown wants to be a modern-day RGIII. Not the injury-proned one that played for the Redskins, the one who won a Heisman Trophy at Baylor.
“That was my favorite quarterback at the time,” he said. “I just feel like I have the same assets, so that’s who I model my game after.”
2. Stanley Garner has Never Seen Snow
When we spoke to the Ft. Lauderdale cornerback for the first time, snow flurries were flying in the Lexington air. Bundled up in a heavy winter coat, you could see that Garner was not excited to walk out into the elements.
“In Florida, I’ve never seen snow. This is my first time really seeing snow. It’s pretty tough. This is the my first time really owning a jacket like this. I guess I’m going to wear the color off it.”
3. Dom Williams Arrived with an Injury
The cornerback broke his hand during his final JUCO season. He had offseason surgery and wore a cast around his left hand during the interviews. The issue should not linger into the season and he’s still able to work out. Williams was worried about their first run of the spring season.
“My first workout here, I thought I was going to die,” Williams said. “It was just real hard, but I think I got adjusted to everything now. It’s pretty smooth. We start running today, and that’s going to be my first time running with the team, so we’re going to see how that goes.”

4. DeAndre Square will Play Will
The athlete from Detroit did a little bit of everything for football powerhouse Cass Tech. Instead of safety or corner, Square will play the Will at Kentucky. The weak-side outside linebacker position is currently occupied by two seniors, Jordan Jones and Eli Brown. Square will put on more muscle, but he already looks the part to fill a position of need.
5. Garner is Gunning for the Upperclassmen
Kentucky’s secondary is one of the most-experienced in the SEC. The top three cornerbacks and both safeties are seniors. That will not deter Garner from competing for playing time.
“I just hope the veterans bring their game, cause I’m bringing my game. I’m trying to get on the field anyway, anyhow.”
