Everything QB Will Levis said after Wildcats spring game


Kentucky strategist Will Levis, a transfer from Penn State, joined the Wildcats in 2021 and helped lead the team to a 10-3 record last season. He got his chance as a full-time starter and was an effective dual-threat quarterback. Going into the Spring 2022 game, Levis felt comfortable with the offense despite a late change in offensive coordinator for Rich Scangarello this offseason.

But after the game, Levis felt confident in the return and new plays on the attacking side of the ball. He complimented running back Chris Rodriguez Jr. and was thrilled that the freshman wide receiver Danish key joined the team as a member of the first hour. Levis capped off the 2021 campaign as a 66% passer, throwing for 2,826 yards and 24 touchdowns for 13 interceptions. He completed his production running for 376 yards and nine touchdowns.

“You know, when it’s all said and done, we’re really excited about where we’re going,” head coach Mark Stoops said. “Again, we were relatively basic today, but there’s quite a bit of carryover that you can see, some nuance. You’re probably not used to seeing a full back there sometimes, so that’s a bit different but really you’re just moving the tight end when you play with 12 staff and how you move them and what you do with them and create different looks But we can do a lot of things that way, but we’re excited to know where we’re headed with the offense.”
