Terry Wilson is poised for a breakout season in 2019. After having a full year in the program under his belt and a 10-win season already on his resume, Wilson’s game is expected to make another jump forward in his junior season. Big things coming from Terry Touchdown in Year 2. Sharpie.
Athlon Sports isn’t as optimistic. In its ranking of the starting quarterbacks of the Southeastern Conference, the trusted sports publication ranked Wilson twelfth out of fourteen QBs in the league:
12. Terry Wilson, Kentucky
With Benny Snell off to the NFL, Kentucky’s offense needs more out of Wilson to match last year’s 10 victories. The Oklahoma native started his career at Oregon but transferred to the junior college level for the 2017 season. After a prolific year at Garden City Community College, Wilson won the starting job for the Wildcats prior to the 2018 opener. He started all 13 games for coach Mark Stoops and threw for 1,889 yards and 11 touchdowns to eight picks. Wilson’s ability to make plays with his legs added another dimension for the Wildcats, as he finished the year with 547 yards and four scores on the ground. The junior isn’t short on talent and should show progress as a passer in his second stint through the SEC. However, will that be enough to spark an offense that averaged only 18.3 points in conference games last season? [Athlon Sports]
QBs ahead of Wilson include Tennessee’s Jarrett Guarantano, someone named Matt Corral, and Joey Gatewood, who has one career pass attempt, an incompletion, at Auburn. South Carolina’s Jake Bentley is also on the list at seventh in his ninth season with the Gamecocks.
Put some respeck on Terry’s name, Athlon.
