The Kentucky Wildcats are fully-stocked with plenty of talented freshmen wideouts, and Dorian Baker is beginning to establish himself above the rest of the pack.

Quarterback Patrick Towles did not shy away from looking to Baker in key situations in Saturday’s win over the Ohio Bobcats. He found Baker on an out-route at the goal line for the Wildcats’ first touchdown of the afternoon, then went his way again on a 33-yard go-route in the second quarter to set up another Kentucky score.

Here are a few looks at both plays:

Let’s break down the Towles-Baker connection following the win against Ohio.

What stands out on both plays is the impeccable timing between Towles and Baker in the passing game. Towles was not named the definitive starting quarterback until midway through last month’s training camp, and Baker, a true freshman, has only been on campus working with the team for a few months.

On the touchdown pass, Towles fit the ball in a small window to Baker in the front corner of the end zone just before the Ohio defensive back could get a hand inside to breakup the pass. Baker made a nice cut to the sideline on his route, and Towles put the ball in a perfect spot where only Baker could catch it. He threw the ball to Baker’s outside shoulder, knowing his freshman wideout would use his big frame and physical style of play to bring in the reception.

“Dorian, he plays physical all day, every day,” head coach Mark Stoops said in weekly his press conference Monday. “We’re starting to get that mentality on the perimeter offensively of being nasty and being tough.”

If Towles throws the ball too early, it either sails past Baker out of bounds or is undercut by the Bobcats’ cornerback, perhaps causing a red zone turnover. If he throws it too late, Baker is stuck along the sidelines with no way to shield the defender from the ball.

However, the Wildcats’ quarterback gets the ball to Baker just as he’s establishing position along the goal line, allowing Baker to make a strong play to earn his first career touchdown as a collegiate.

The second play is far less complicated, but equally as impressive as the touchdown. Baker ran a simple go-route down the right sideline, and as soon as Towles saw there was no safety help over the top, he aired the ball out down the field to his play-making wideout.

The timing between Towles and Baker was on full-display with this play, as Towles took a quick three-step drop then immediately stepped into his throw. He didn’t rush his mechanics, but he did get rid of the ball quickly to take advantage of Baker’s one-on-one matchup.

The throw was flawless. The UK quarterback hit Baker right in his hands in stride, putting a perfect arc on the ball to drop it over the defender’s head and right into Baker’s bread basket. There was never a chance for anyone but the freshman receiver to make a play on the ball, and he never had to break his route, change his stride or even turn his head to make the catch.

The throw might have convinced a stranger to the program that Towles and Baker have been making that play for years. Wildcats fans hope they’re still making that play years from now. If the two look this in-sync after only two games, the sky is the limit for this tandem in Neal Brown’s Air Raid offense.
