Last week Kentucky coaches said that true freshman quarterback Amani Gilmore was learning and getting better. Junior Sawyer Smith got into the game against Vanderbilt after missing all of the four previous games. Redshirt sophomore quarterback Walker Wood got into a Kentucky game for the first time at Vanderbilt.
Then obviously junior Lynn Bowden just continues to get better and better as UK’s “emergency” quarterback going into Saturday afternoon’s game against Tennessee-Martin.
But what about Terry Wilson? Remember him. He’s the junior college transfer who won the UK starting job in 2018 and led UK to a 10-3 record and Citrus Bowl victory. He was expected to be even better this year before injuring his knee in game two and going down for the season.
“Terry’s doing good,” Kentucky coach Mark Stoops said.
Wilson made the trip to Vanderbilt last weekend to watch UK win and get to 5-5 on the year.
“He wanted to go because he was feeling better off those crutches,” Stoops said. “Has a little bit better movement and can protect himself out on the sideline a little bit better.
“It was important for him to go and show that support for the team. It was great to bring him and have him apart of it and get around more. His rehab is going well.”
