College football preview magazine season is just around the corner. Before the publications hit the printers, a few are revealing information online. Up first is Athlon Sports.
Wednesday morning Athlon published its preseason All-SEC team. Drake Jackson was the only Wildcat on the first team, while Lynn Bowden appears as an all-purpose back and a punt returner.
- Lynn Bowden: Second Team All-Purpose, Third Team Punt Returner
- Drake Jackson: First Team Center
- Landon Young: Fourth Team Offensive Line
- Logan Stenberg: Second Team Offensive Line
- Quinton Bohanna: Fourth Team Defensive Line
- Kash Daniel: Third Team Linebacker
Athlon notes this team is based purely off their 2019 projections. By that indication, the left side of UK’s offensive line will be one of the best in the SEC. If Landon Young did not miss last season with an injury, he would be in line for first or second team considerations.
Alabama led the way with 13 players on the All-SEC team, including Lexington native Jedrick Wills, Athlon’s first team offensive tackle. Florida and Auburn were not far behind, each with ten preseason All-SEC selections.
