Intentional or not, UK put on a show for its new tight end commit, Jordan Dingle, early in the game against Vanderbilt. Dingle committed to Kentucky on Friday, and on Saturday the Kentucky offense was throwing to its tight ends for touchdowns.
Senior Justin Rigg was first with the first score of the game, a 15-yard reception from Terry Wilson:

Wilson hit the other tight end, Keaton Upshaw, for a 21-yard score to put Kentucky up 21-7 in the first half.
When Dingle, a top-20 tight end in the Class of 2021, pledged his commitment to the Cats on KSR, he told the show UK’s coaches sold him on getting the tight ends more involved in the passing game. It sure didn’t take them to prove it.
