Kentucky received a verbal commitment from three-star 2018 JUCO QB Terry Wilson.

Wilson (6'3/187) was originally a member of Oregon's 2016 recruiting class but transferred to the JUCO ranks in May. He checks into the 247Sports Composite as the No. 3 dual-threat junior college gunslinger in the 2018 class. He pledged himself to the Wildcats cause after taking an official visit to UK on Friday. This is a much-needed get for HC Mark Stoops, as Kentucky just lost four-star QB Jarren Williams to Miami.

Kentucky sophomore RB Benjamin Snell Jr. rushed for 211 yards and two touchdowns on 29 carries in Saturday's 44-17 loss to Louisville.

Snell served as essentially the entire Kentucky offense in this one -- they finished with 338 total yards as a team, 211 of which came via the sophomore's magical ways. He found the end zone from two yards out late in the first quarter and later added a little four-yard score in the closing minutes of the fourth quarter. The 5-foot-11, 220-pounder has turned in a lovely overall season, having now rushed for 1,318 yards and 18 touchdowns across 12 games played. He'll have one last chance to excel when Kentucky (7-5) hits their bowl game next month.

Kentucky junior TE C.J. Conrad (foot) is scheduled to undergo season-ending surgery on Tuesday.

"Unfortunately C.J. will be out for the remainder of the year," HC Mark Stoops announced. Currently, Conrad is the team’s third-leading receiver with 16 catches for 286 yards and four touchdowns. The 6-foot-5, 245-pounder, Mel Kiper's No. 2 underclassmen TE prospect heading into the year, has an NFL decision to make. Meanwhile, Greg Hart will take over as starter for the Wildcats.

Kentucky junior TE C.J. Conrad (foot) was seen wearing a boot and using crutches after Saturday's loss to Georgia.

Conrad (6'5/245) is not believed to have a broken foot, according to Wildcats coach Mike Stoops. We should have an update on if/when he'll be able to return for Kentucky this year later in the week.
Nov 18 - 7:34 PM

Kentucky sophomore RB Benjamin Snell Jr. rushed 22 times for 94 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's loss at Georgia.

The Wildcats weren't much of a challenge for the Bulldogs, but Snell did his part for Kentucky. He has racked up 10 rushing touchdowns over his past four outings, and 16 scores through 11 games this season. Snell gives the Wildcats a standout on offense for many years to come in the ultra competitive SEC.
Nov 18 - 7:18 PM

Kentucky sophomore RB Benjamin Snell Jr. rushed for 116 yards on 17 carries with three touchdowns in a 44-21 destruction of Vanderbilt on Saturday.

He added a catch for 20 yards, for good measure. This could have been a much bigger game for Snell Jr. if the Wildcats wouldn't have called off the dogs early in this one. Still, it's another big effort for one of the more underrated performers in the SEC. With his third touchdown, he's now the all-time leader in rushing touchdowns for the Wildcats. And he's only a sophomore. Snell Jr. gets a great test next week when Kentucky takes on Georgia.
Nov 11 - 7:37 PM

Kentucky senior P Matt Panton was suspended for Saturday's game against Vanderbilt following his weekend arrest on a public intoxication charge.

Panton (6'4/230) was arrested for public intoxication on Saturday. He was reportedly found passed out on the sidewalk and smelled strongly of alcohol. The senior is averaging 42.3 yards per punt this season, the eighth best mark in the SEC.
Nov 7 - 11:02 PM

Kentucky sophomore RB Benjamin Snell Jr. rushed for 176 yards and three touchdowns in Saturday's 37-34 loss to Ole Miss.

Despite the impressive overall yardage total for Snell, his touchdowns all came on one- or two-yard rushes. The 5-foot-11, 220-pounder has blown up over the last two games, rolling for a combined 356 yards and six touchdowns in that space. For the campaign as a whole, the sophomore back has rushed for 897 yards and 12 touchdowns over the course of nine games played.
Nov 4 - 8:58 PM

Kentucky senior QB Stephen Johnson (shoulder) will play against Mississippi State on Saturday.

Johnson didn't practice on Monday or Tuesday, but that appears to have just been a way to get the "banged up" senior a couple of days off before the big game against the Bulldogs. The 6-foot-2, 185-pound quarterback has completed 59 percent of his passes with nine touchdowns and four interceptions so far this season.

Kentucky senior QB Stephen Johnson (undisclosed) won't practice on Monday or Tuesday, but should be able to play against Mississippi State.

Johnson is considered "banged up" after taking some hard hits in the win over Tennessee last week, so it sounds like this is more about keeping the starting quarterback rested. If for whatever reason Johnson wasn't able to go against the Bulldogs, the Wildcats would like go with Drew Barker behind center.
Oct 30 - 6:27 PM

SEC Country's Randy Capps assigned Kentucky senior QB Stephen Johnson a "B-minus" grade for his performance in Saturday's win over Tennessee.

Johnson threw for just 46 yards while rushing for 84 yards and a score in the victory, but Capps was a fan of his performance despite the lack of big statistical fireworks. Wrote the analyst, "(His passing was unnoteworthy) [b]ut his big gainers on the ground, and the leadership and toughness he showed in the game, balance that out." For the campaign, the 6-foot-2, 183-pounder has passed for 1,401 yards with a 9/4 TD/INT ratio. He's also rushed for 282 yards and three scores. The Wildcats will play host to Ole Miss next weekend.

Oct 29 - 2:56 PM

Kentucky sophomore RB Benjamin Snell Jr. ran for 180 yards on 27 carries with three touchdowns in a 29-26 victory over Tennessee on Saturday.

Snell Jr. was only able to carry the ball seven times last week in the Wildcats blowout loss to Mississippi State, but he certainly was back on track tonight. He gashed through the Volunteers' porous run defense, and he scored three times within ten yards. Even as a sophomore, Snell Jr. has established himself as one of the best running backs in the SEC. He and Kentucky have a date with the awful Ole Miss defense next week.
Oct 28 - 11:24 PM

Kentucky HC Mark Stoops ruled redshirt freshman RB A.J. Rose (undisclosed) out for Saturday's game against Tennessee.

Stoops said on a radio show that Rose was "banged up" against Mississippi State and currently has no timetable for return. No further details were provided. Rose, who redshirted last year, was a three-star athlete coming out of the prep ranks.
Oct 24 - 2:33 PM

Kentucky junior QB Luke Wright said that medical tests "all came back good" after he collapsed on the sideline on Saturday.

Wright was carted off the sideline in the second half of Saturday's win over Missouri. His collapse was not due to an injury sustained in the game (the junior has yet to play this season). Kentucky HC Mark Stoops has declined to offer specific detail as to Wright's ailment.

Oct 10 - 6:12 PM

Kentucky junior WR Garrett Johnson caught seven passes for 111 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 40-34 win over Missouri.

Johnson (5'11/182) played a huge role in the victory. With the game tied at 27-27 entering the fourth quarter, the junior found the end zone on a 64-yard touchdown pass from QB Stephen Johnson to give the Wildcats a one-score lead. While Missouri would tie it up a short time later, Kentucky would eventually come away with the win following a pair of field goals over the final nine minutes of the game. For his part, Johnson (Garrett) has logged a 27-333-2 receiving line over the course of six games played.
