Chad Scott likes Braylon Heard’s experience, knows competetion will make all backs better

By LARRY VAUGHT

Kentucky will also add Braylon Heard, a transfer from Nebraska, into the running back  mix with JoJo Kemp, Ryan Timmons, Boom Williams and Mikel Horton next season.

“One thing about Braylon Heard is that he is very fast, but he has experience of playing big-time college football. As experienced as those guys (Horton and Williams) are, they have not played college football yet. Braylon Heard has played two years and knows what it takes and how to prepare. Just having that experience factor gives him a big boost,” Scott said as UK gets set to start spring practice Friday.

Scott also knows that Kemp, who had a productive freshman season, should be a lot better this season.

“The competition will make him better. It will make them all better,” Scott said. “That ultimately gets us to the point where we want to be as a program, which is championship level.”

Scott isn’t worried about having too many talented running backs, either.

“That is what you have to have. When you have competition and somebody behind you just as good, that keeps you on your toes,” Scott said. “It makes you do extra work and continue to do little things to separate yourself. If you don’t have that competition, you are constantly pushing guys to do that on a daily basis. But if they have somebody behind them just as good, you are getting the most out of that kid.”

    The few reports about him were really good last yr, be nice to see him put to use use on the for UK this year. We are going to be loaded at RB front and back!

    It will be nice to see the offense out on the field longer and no more 3 and outs of the past. If they can stay out there wearing the other defense’s down, keeping our defense fresh we are going to be turning some heads this year.

    David ,

    I think UK is going to turn some heads with the speed we put on the field this year. We’ve been slow the last couple of years, this up coming season is about to change that.
