Looking for another sign of the progress the Kentucky football program is making under Mark Stoops?
Then consider Louisville Kentucky Country Day quarterback Robert Scholtz. He’s decided to join the Wildcats as a walk-on player. No big deal? Maybe, but remember there was a time last season he was a hot topic as a Division I quarterback and for Stoops and Neal Brown to persuade him to come to Kentucky as a preferred walk-on shows the respect the program now has.
The 6-5, 190-pound Scholtz completed 90 of 160 passes for 1,663 yards and 27 touchdowns with seven interceptions last season and was 128 of 249 passing for 2,385 yards and 32 scores with just five interceptions as a junior. In 2010 — his sophomore season — he threw for 2,867 passing yards and 30 touchdowns in 2010.
That gives UK a quarterback who threw for 5,915 yards and 89 touchdowns as a preferred walk-on.
