Could Kentucky be better than expected this football season?
Freshman cornerback Jalell Hytchye of Cincinnati says he has been pleasantly surprised by the returning talent UK had to go with his freshman class.
“I feel like we have talent. We most definitely have talent,” he said. “Those guys work hard. Anybody who tells you they are not working hard is telling you a lie. Those guys are working and seeing how hard they work, what they are doing in the weight room and seeing what they do on the field for our workouts and how they teach the younger guys you can tell we are building a foundation here.
“Along with those guys and our class and the next class they are bringing in, we are really going to be something in the next couple of years. Just wait and see.”
