Know Your Wildcat: Jordan Aumiller

UK Football Media Day

During the slow and insipid summer of 2008, former KSR wordsmith Evan Hilbert profiled each and every member of the University of Kentucky football team. Though his knowledge was sparse and his research was far from thorough, Evan’s short and insufficient player profiles were an integral part of Kentucky’s success that season. UK finished with seven wins, including the opener at Louisville and a 25-19 victory in the Liberty Bowl. Kentucky hasn’t won a bowl game since. Let’s bring back that magic…

How He Got Here

Aumiller committed to Kentucky early in the summer prior to his senior season of high school at Boyle County. He only held offers from UK and Marshall at the time but believed a Louisville offer was coming soon.

Freshman Season, 2009

Redshirted as a linebacker and earned Scout Team Player of the Week honors twice throughout the season.

Redshirt Freshman Season, 2010

Now at tight end, Aumiller played in all 13 games, starting in eight, and caught 18 passes for 193 yard and one touchdown. He was named First Team Freshman All-SEC and Fourth Team Freshman All-American.

Sophomore Season, 2011

Saw his playing time diminish behind senior tight end Nick Melillo; Aumiller started in one game but did not catch a pass on the year.

Junior Season, 2012

Played in three games but failed to record a reception for the second season in a row.

Something You Didn’t Know About Him

His nickname is “Lank.”

Outlook for 2013

After going two full seasons without a catch, Jordan Aumiller is ready to take over the starting tight end duties for the Wildcats again. Vince Marrow said last week that Aumiller has a slight edge over Anthony Kendrick at the position, but both can expect to get a lot of opportunities in the new Air Raid offense.

    The SEC teams love 2-star athletes…love to pound them into the ground.

    2) you seem to forget, he’s being coached by someone who really knows how to coach. Not saying he’ll take the SEC by storm. But like my great aunt used to say, if you have a few scraps of ham in the freezer, you can at least make some chipped ham gravy to go with breakfast…#SHITONASHINGLE!
