HAZARD, Ky. (WYMT) - Practice is still a couple months away, but hype is building around Kentucky’s football team for the 2021 season. Saturday Down South’s Michael Bratton put the Wildcats at No. 2 in the SEC East his preseason predictions.

The Wildcats bring back two highly-touted quarterback prospects in Lexington Catholic graduate Beau Allen and Auburn transfer Joey Gatewood. They also brought in Somerset graduate Kaiya Sheron. In addition to the quarterback room, Kentucky returns its leading rusher and receiver in Chris Rodriguez and Josh Ali along with adding Liam Coen as the new offensive coordinator from the Los Angeles Rams staff.
