Terry Wilson, former Kentucky QB, pays homage to Jared Lorenzen on first day of NFL Draft prep
Terry Wilson may have moved on from Kentucky, but that doesn’t mean the quarterback forgot a legendary figure for the Wildcats. In fact, Wilson, who transferred to New Mexico, paid homage to Jared Lorenzen, the former UK quarterback who died in 2019.
Wilson, who began his NFL Draft workouts with the Greg Panelli Passing Academy, wore cleats to honor Lorenzen, and one of his many nicknames, “The Hefty Lefty.”
Wilson last season for New Mexico passed for 1,055 yards and completed 99-of-172 passes for 7 touchdowns and 4 interceptions. He did not play after Oct. 9 in 2021 for New Mexico after he suffered a dislocated elbow on his non-throwing arm against San Diego State, the Albuquerque Journal reported.
Before he transferred from Kentucky, he had a strong career in Lexington.
Wilson went 17-8 as a starter for Kentucky, and he established himself in the history books in Lexington. Wilson is the only player in school history with at least 3,000 career passing yards (3,436) and 1,000 career rushing yards (1,015).
Wilson started for 3 seasons at Kentucky, and completed 65 percent of his passes for 3,436 yards, 20 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. Wilson rushed for 1,015 yards and 10 more touchdowns.
Another part of his Kentucky legacy is a pair of bowl victories in 2018 and 2020 over Penn State and North Carolina State, respectively.
Big Blue Nation will love to see this, and no doubt wish Wilson well in the future.
