Do not underestimate the impact that co-offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Darin Hinshaw has in recruiting quarterbacks.
He was the one who found Stephen Johnson two years ago, got him to Kentucky and then had him ready to play when Drew Barker got hurt early in the season.
This year when four-star Georgia quarterback Jarren Williams bailed on Kentucky, Hinshaw went out and helped persuade junior college quarterback Terry Wilson to sign with Kentucky. Wilson will be on campus in January.
So what did Wilson like best about Hinshaw?
“He is a great guy. We were in there watching film on my visit and going over plays and everything,” Wilson said. “We just clicked. I was so used to the same concepts, same protections I have ran before.
“We were really on the same page and he liked that a lot. He is excited to coach me. We are both hungry for success and greatness.
“He is a great guy. When we were watching film and I got some protection calls — even with the new names — right, he just started yelling and I thought, ‘I can deal with this.’”
