Kentucky coach Mark Stoops said he couldn’t remember any one “jumping out” at him defensively after Saturday’s scrimmage.
“Just across the board I felt like we played pretty stout defensively. I felt the line of scrimmage was pretty strong,” Stoops said before noting that defensive back Jordan Griffin did have a score.
However, junior linebacker Kash Daniel did make a big impression on the UK head coach.
“Kash is gaining a lot of confidence. I just like the way he’s playing. I just think it’s his time and he feels very comfortable out there. I like the way he’s taking command,” Stoops said.
“He’s a great guy to step right in and replace Courtney (Love) because of the leadership that Courtney had. I like the presence that Kash is bringing right now. Obviously he makes some mistakes and needs to get better like everybody, but he has a good presence out there.
“He’s confident and is taking charge. I stand right behind the quarterbacks so I kind of get a vision on it. I like his presence and I like the way he’s playing. And Jordan Jones had a good scrimmage again. He made quite a few plays.”
