Kentucky coach Mark Stoops says that his team is "better across the board" coming out of spring but he's still looking to build along the defensive line. He's hoping that his 2017 recruiting class, which signed seven defensive linemen, can help fill some voids and add quality depth but he doesn't want to totally rely on his young guys. He'd prefer if some of his veterans would step up in the coming months.

ESPN 300 quarterback Jarren Williams has recommitted to Kentucky. The No. 257 ranked prospect initially decommitted from the Wildcats after receiving an offer from Alabama in April. Williams tweeted that the relationships he had with the Kentucky coaches were something that stood out and helped him make this decision, saying, "The relationships and trust that I have built with the coaching staff, players, and all the support from the fan base is all too important." Kentucky now has three ESPN 300 commitments with defensive end Alex Reigelsperger and offensive lineman Marquan McCall.

Nice run from running back Jojo Kemp here at Bucs rookie camp. He's a tryout player out of Kentucky. He and the other backs are benefiting from the fact that Jeremy McNichols is still recovering from a torn labrum. More reps.
