Kentucky’s football program has won 18 games over the last two season. That train isn’t slowing down anytime soon.
Logan Stenberg and Lynn Bowden will not be a part of Mark Stoops’ team in 2020. As they near their NFL dreams, they’re excited to see what the Wildcats will do on the gridiron this fall.
“The sky’s the limit. We got Terry coming back. We got great weapons there and we’re ready to play,” Logan Stenberg said Wednesday at the NFL Combine. “We got a great offensive line returning, a lot of depth with a lot of snaps in their arsenal. I think the sky’s the limit. The defense is going to be great as well. We got DeAndre Square and a great defensive line, so I’m looking forward to it.”
A 2019 All-SEC selection at offensive guard, Stenberg will give Kentucky’s Big Blue Wall NFL Draft picks in consecutive seasons, following George Asafo-Adjei’s seventh round selection in 2019. Stenberg is so confident in the 2020 version of the Wildcats because of who will be representing the Big Blue Wall at the 2021 NFL Combine.
“Next year we’re going to have some great guys,” he said. “We have Drake (Jackson), Landon (Young), Darian (Kinnard) coming out next year that are going to be great prospects, incredible players. I think Kentucky is going to be a great place for offensive linemen to go play.”
Kentucky will not just be big on the offensive side of the ball in 2020. Stenberg said Quinton Bohanna is the best player no one is talking about.
“He’s stout, a big guy in there, makes a lot of big plays for us and is very disruptive,” he said. “He’s played since he got there. You could tell he was young a couple years ago. He’s obviously come a long way since then. He’s going to be a great player.”
Kentucky has all of the pieces. If the Cats can complete the puzzle, Lynn Bowden believes an SEC Championship is within reach.
