Deebo Samuel a big threat for Kentucky

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WYMT) - SEC play starts this weekend when the Kentucky Wildcats hit the road to take on the South Carolina Gamecocks. South Carolina is also sitting with a 2-0 record after two quality wins over Mizzou and North Carolina State.

One threat that the Gamecocks have is wide receiver and kick returner Deebo Samuel. He's already racked up five touchdowns, two being kick returns, and over 350 all purpose yards after two weeks. Head coach Mark Stoops knows how big of a threat he is.

Stoops said, "He's electric. He's a playmaker. He's got great vision. Like any greater returner, you've got to have top-end speed. He obviously has top-end speed, and can make people miss but it also has vision. That's where you know you have a very good football player. He does a lot of things. They want the ball in his hands. He's got quite a few touches. He'll get things on reverses, and little fly sweeps. Kick returns. In many different ways. Obviously they'll isolate him and try to get you one-on-one with him in the pass game."
