What player or players do selected Kentucky media members think have to make a big jump in August for Kentucky to be successful next season?
Tom Leach, UK Radio Network/Leach Report: “We’ve seen players make transformations over the summer in the past and this would be a great time for Matt Elam to take it to another level in preparing himself to be a force in the middle of the defensive line come August. And other interior defensive linemen making that big jump would also be a big plus because the Cats.”
Mark Story, Lexington Herald-Leader: “The entire middle of the defensive front, and I’m sure people will focus especially on Matt Elam because of his recruiting profile.”
Keith Taylor, Kentucky Forward: “Boom Williams and the receivers, namely Garrett Johnson and Jeff Badet will need to build on the spring they each had in order for the Wildcats to establish a legitimate passing game. Didn’t see as many dropped passes during spring workouts, also a bonus for the new offensive coaching staff.”
Freddie Maggard, Kentucky Sports Radio: “Offensive tackle and the defensive line in entirety. If those two improve or develop, Kentucky has the surrounding skill talent to win some games.”
