Kentucky offensive coordinator Neal Brown says there has been no noticeable change in Jalen Whitlow now that’s established himself as UK’s starting quarterback.
“I think he did a better job in preparation last week than he has. He’s learning. It’s an ongoing process. He’s learning how to prepare week in and week out. But as far as, I think his personality’s coming forward a little bit more maybe. That would be fair to say as far as speaking up. But those were the main things I’d say,” Brown said.
Brown thinks Whitlow’s play at South Carolina where he led UK to three fourth-quarter touchdowns has helped his personality emerge this week.
“I think anytime you look at leadership on your football team, for the most part it’s your best players. The first person that would jump out to me is Avery Williamson and he’s one of our best players. Bud Dupree, he’s one of our best players,” Brown said. “On offense, Darrian Miller, he’s one of our best players, you know what I mean? Raymond Sanders.
“I think the better you play, it’s easier for you to speak up because people respect guys that maybe aren’t playing much, but they’re not necessarily going to listen to people unless they’re out there getting it done.”
