CBS Sports' Rob Rang thinks Kentucky redshirt junior RB Braylon Heard displays good "quickness and acceleration."
"After sitting out last season as part of the transfer process, Heard is in good position to emerge as the Wildcats' starter in 2014," Rang wrote. Heard decided to transfer from Nebraska last May after struggling to fight his way up the depth chart. He rushed for 348 yards on 6.7 yards per carry and scored three touchdowns in 2012. "Heard has good quickness and acceleration and should provide the Wildcats with a big-play threat out of the backfield," Rang wrote. Aug 16 - 10:50 PM

Nebraska sophomore RB Braylon Heard is transferring to Kentucky.

"I feel it is the right spot because I feel like I fit in well at the university," Heard told ESPN. "Kentucky will set up the run really well. They have good players on the outside, three good QB’s, a great line and backs. And yes, can’t beat being in the SEC." He will have to sit out the 2013 season.

Nebraska sophomore RB Braylon Heard is expected to transfer to a different program.

Heard only received 52 rushing attempts in 2012 despite lead back Rex Burkhead missing most of the season due to an injury. He did average 6.2 yards per carry and managed to cross the goal line three times. Heard had previously considered a move to cornerback.

Nebraska’s Braydon Heard will get a look at corner when the spring season begins on March 10.

Heard served as a backup running back last season rushing for 114 yards and one TD on 25 carries. Because of the level of experience returning in the offensive backfield for 2012, Heard could benefit with respect to playing time from a switch. Coach Bo Pelini said that he would have recruited Heard as a corner, but still likes him as a running back.
