Kentucky kicks off their season against Central Michigan on Saturday and who will quarterback for the Wildcats in 2018 remains an open-ended question.

During Central Michigan’s teleconference Monday morning, head coach John Bonamego says that it’s “highly likely” that he will see both quarterbacks Terry Wilson and Gunnar Hoak get reps this week.

Kentucky coach Mark Stoops has previously stated that he could see giving both QBs a chance in the early season, and it looks like that’s what will happen.

“You heard me say it, I’m honest about it, but I think at that position you get a good feel for what you have but until you get to a game, you’re not exactly 100 percent sure and that’s not different in many places, not different in the NFL in my opinion,” said Stoops at Kentucky’s media day. “Until those guys get under center and get playing and get those game reps, you’re a bit unsure. I think it’s fair to both of those guys to give them an opportunity because it’s very close at this time.”

Regardless, Stoops has confidence in Hoak and Wilson and thinks that either one of them can have success in Kentucky’s offense.

“You know, your quarterback needs to be a leader and these guys are. That’s why we have confidence going into this fall because we have faith in the quarterbacks, whoever is going to win that job, whoever is going to be under center and playing, we have faith in them and we feel strong around them, and those guys have to play well.”
