Redshirt freshman running back A.J. Rose got to play the role of Heisman Trophy quarterback Lamar Jackson to help Kentucky’s defense prepare for Louisville.
Now he’s playing the role of quarterback in Georgia Tech’s triple option offense to prepare for the Dec. 31 TaxSlayer Bowl in Jacksonville.
“He is versatile. One of the things we really talked to him about was learning our offense and making sure he really honed in on that. I can already tell he is light years away from where he was in the fall,” UK coach Mark Stoops said.
