Views from Inside Kentucky’s First Spring Practice

Tuesday morning the Kentucky football team hit the practice field for the first time in 2020. Players wore helmets as coaches introduced newcomers to the way the Wildcat practice.

Terry Wilson was able to participate in individual drills, wearing a helmet for the first time since he suffered a season-ending knee injury against Eastern Michigan.

Josh Ali caught balls from Joey Gatewood. He said the only difference catching balls from Gatewood is: “The thing about Joey — I can see Joey because he’s a little bit taller than everybody.”

Ali created a nice connection with Wilson during opening day action.

On the defensive side of the ball, we got to see a talented group of linebackers and J.J. Weaver rocking No. 13 for the first time.

    Curious, as I don’t think this has been addressed on here, but are JJ Weaver’s gloves specially made to accommodate the extra digit? If so, is that done in-house, or by Nike?

    Rose and Smoke looked good on those runs. Especially Rose he looked more fluid in his cuts through the defense. He’s not going to break a bunch of tackles so that’s what he needs to do to make a name for himself. Evade tackles and then bust em for 20+.

      I should also mention the fact if Smoke can juke that good in every game with his speed and power combo he may take over the starting spot early.

    Love that pic of Davis, Square and our favorite player Chris Oats. Met his mom at the Belk Bowl, very nice lady. Also I said all last year that Davis could be a beast, we just have so much depth at his position he has to wait. His time is coming.
