Vince Marrow, the out-spoken and well-respected Kentucky assistant, has weighed in on several topics ahead of the football season as they relate to the Wildcats.

One of them is star quarterback Will Levis, who is a main reason why Kentucky is getting a lot of offseason love this spring and entering the summer.

“[Scouts] really like him. I think when they came to that Pro Day and watched him throw and he made every throw — but what people really don’t see is his leadership and how tough he is and how he can galvanize a team,” Marrow said, per Tyler Thompson of Kentucky Sports Radio.

Levis is pegged as one of the top quarterback prospects ahead of the 2023 NFL Draft, widely viewed as in the mix with Bryce Young of Alabama, and CJ Stroud of Ohio State.

Momentum continues to be strong for the Wildcats, and Marrow believes UK is in the mix for the SEC East against Georgia, widely viewed as the favorite to win the division again.

“I think it’s going to come down to that game. November 19. Gonna be cold. Kroger Field will be rocking. Gonna be cold. It’ll be a good time to play some football,” Marrow said.

Marrow has seen the rise of the Kentucky program under Mark Stoops, and how the Wildcats have gradually ascended up the ladder in the SEC. What’s next?

“What fans are going to see is what Mark Stoops has built,” Marrow said. “You’re going to see a team that expects to win, that will win and we’re gonna try to get to Atlanta. This may be the year we say this is the last door we need to kick in to get down there.”
