Florida wide receiver Garrett Johnson knew UK needed help at his position when he verbally committed to the Wildcats.
“I could also see that Kentucky has a need for players at my position. I definitely knew the number of receivers they have. When I heard they only had two or three on scholarship when they got here, the light went off in my head. It’s a great opportunity for me to come in and play early.”
Freshman Jeff Badet, who he calls a “close friend,” told him UK’s lack of depth at receiver was a “perfect” opportunity for them both. “He even sent me a (newspaper) article about coach Brown,” Johnson said.
He became friends with Badet after they competed against each other.
“We just got closer and closer and now that we are both going to Kentucky, we are even closer,” Johnson said. “I think, as a player, he is kind of like myself. He can go get the ball and make things happen. Fans are going to enjoy watching him a lot and I think he’ll make a big name for himself this year.”
