2. Clevan Thomas is set to make his mark.

Clevan Thomas is the only freshman to make the top two on the depth charts. I have been high on Thomas since the spring. The Miami, Florida product may be setting out to become a top target in the future. With excellent speed and strength on the perimeter, Thomas will have some success in Eddie Gran’s offense.

He will be playing behind of of Kentucky’s best receiving threats in Garrett Johnson. Behind Johnson, Thomas will have the opportunity to blossom into an all around athlete who can grab the deep ball. Also, Clevan Thomas could have the opportunity to learn from the older, seasoned veterans on the staff. Additionally, he could become the ultimate offensive weapon. In order for Kentucky to be successful, the wide receiving core must produce some impressive numbers. The running backs will have their success but the Cats must have production from the receivers to win games. Thomas can give this offense the receiver depth that they need to push them over the edge.
