For Kentucky football fans who might be in NBA draft overload after watching Julius Randle and James Young go in the first 17 picks Thursday night, here’s a little football tidbit.
I asked former UK All-American receiver Derek Abney if there wasone player last season that just really caught his eye.?
“(Receiver) Ryan Timmons. He is just amazing,” said Abney during his time at the C.H.A.M.P. “Sometimes I want to tell him to get down (when he’s about to get hit). I have been through that a little bit, but he makes the defense look like they are a younger age group and he’ll only be a sophomore.
“I was very impressed with Timmons. He has speed and he can juke, too. He is not just a straight speed guy. He has a little wiggle. That is special. I think he is going to do well. He has to stay healthy. He is a little smaller guy like me, but he has got the speed and a little juke to him to be fine.”
