Cincinnati safety Mike Edwards, who has verbally committed to play for Kentucky coach Mark Stoops, said he “really didn’t know much” about Kentucky football growing up. In fact, he was anti-UK basketball.
“I really didn’t like Kentucky growing up, especially the basketball team,” said Edwards, who has verbally committed to play for the Wildcats. “I just started liking Kentucky when Stoops came in. I really liked him.”
Edwards, who played basketball and baseball along with football, laughs now when he thinks about why he was not a UK basketball fan.
“I just didn’t like them or Duke,” he said. “It seemed like they thought they were the best all the time. They just seemed cocky at that time to me.”
