Now onto the News, Rumors, and Commentary…
“These media sessions can be informative, but the news that came out of Hoover was even more than planned as Stoops confirmed the news that junior tight end Keaton Upshaw is possibly lost for the season with an injury during workouts. SEC Media Days are typically one of the few times Stoops meets with the media between the time that spring practice closes and fall camp begins. “Traditionally speaking, that is a season-ending injury but we will see and we need to confirm that. “He has an injury.”
“Asked about Gatewood specifically, Stoops said the junior transfer from Auburn — now in his second year with the Cats — had an impressive showing this spring competing against sophomore Beau Allen, the former Lexington Catholic standout. I feel very good about those three and others in our program.” Asked what qualities he’ll be looking for in the eventual starter, Stoops said: “It’s hard to describe. Stoops, who noted that players who have thrown with Levis during informal off-season workouts describe his arm as “different,” says having three good options at quarterback is a good problem to have heading into camp. Stoops offered his confidence that UK will have improved play at quarterback this season, whether it’s from Levis, Joey Gatewood, or Beau Allen.”
