Kentucky officially welcomes five early enrollees into the program
Kentucky Football announced the addition of five mid-term enrollees Tuesday, all of which join the program immediately in order to prep for spring football.
The one name that could really factor into the 2018 season for the Wildcats is, of course, junior college quarterback Terry Wilson Jr. With Drew Barker leaving the program and Stephen Johnson exhausting his eligibility, Wilson should factor seriously into the starting competition at quarterback in the fall.
The school released the following bios for the five players:
