One of the weaknesses of the Kentucky Wildcats offensive attack has been the inconsistency of the wide receiver position, Today we look at a couple of new players that are expected to bolster Kentucky’s receiving corps.
WOODRUFF – WOODRUFF, SC
Blake Bone comes to the Wildcats as a four star WR (per Rivals) and three star from all the other recruiting services. Rivals has him rated as the 49th best WR in the country and he brings great size and ability to Kentucky’s corps.
Just one look at Bone’s high school career shows what a productive and consistent receiver he is. He caught 72 passes for 1247 yards and 8 TD’s his senior season, but his last three years of high school were very impressive. Over the three seasons, Bone amassed 197 catches for 3454 yards and 32 TD’s.
That led to Boone being named to the First team class AAA All State team and the Region Player of the Year. Bone was also an all state player in basketball his junior and senior year, so he is a very versatile athlete. Bone is at his best when he is catching in traffic and has great hands.
Due to all the talent at the WR position, it’s a bit early to predict how much playing time Bone will get, but expect him to compete for playing time and to see some action this year. His size makes him a natural end zone target for Kentucky’s quarterbacks.
Here is some video of Boone in action.
