Lynn Bowden has received a lot of hype about what a terrific addition he could be a a freshman playmaker for Kentucky’s offense this season.
But don’t rule out true freshman linebacker Josh Paschal doing the same for the UK defense even though he’s playing behind Denzil Ware, one of the top returning playmakers in the SEC last year.
“I always stand right behind there during the scrimmage. He made a play or two that really stood out to me. Wowed me a little bit,” Kentucky coach Mark Stoops said after Saturday’s scrimmage.
“I noticed that on the field. He showed three, four plays during the scrimmage that he just stood out. I don’t want to get everybody all excited. He’s a freshman. He’s got a lot of work to do, but he’s very, very talented and does stand out out there. He’s a physical guy. He’s got a lot of twitch. He has good instincts. He’s smart.
“We can move him around, do some different things with him. He’s one of those versatile guys for how big he is. He did some really good things.”
