If Mark Stoops is right, running back Jonathan George’s performance could be the most overlooked part of Kentucky’s preseason camp.
“I feel good about Jonathan. I think he’s done some really good things. He’s been very dedicated, he’s played very physical and he’s done a really nice job,” said Stoops after Wednesday’s practice.
“Maybe you take him a little bit for granted. He’s just a guy, like I said, he’s a joy to coach and be around. He’s always working hard and playing physical, which I like.”
So does offensive coordinator Neal Brown.
“We definitely can count on him. I thought he was the best player in both of our scrimmages on offense. Hard-nosed kid, was physical, broke tackles. So I’ve got a lot of trust in him,” Brown said.
