Miami OH vs UK Football 2022 preview.
Kentucky, ranked 21st, looks to build off a successful 2021 season when it kicks off against Miami Ohio on Saturday.
Wildcats quarterback Will Levis will once again lead the charge. He is projected to go high in the NFL Draft next spring. His teammates have no doubt he has NFL size.
“My first impression was how big he is,” Wildcats wide receiver Dane Key said, via Jon Hale of the Lexington Herald. “He’s huge. To be a quarterback and have that build surprised me.”
Levis can make deep throws, but he can also make big plays with his legs.
“Obviously he’s got a lot of talent, but what makes him so much better than a lot of quarterbacks is not just his athleticism, not just his intelligence,” Wildcats tight end Brenden Bates said, according to Hale. “It’s because the guy has a crazy work mentality. I remember coming in and he was always asking to throw. He was always doing extra stuff.”
Miami Ohio has a quarterback with NFL pedigree in Brett Gabbert, a younger brother of NFL quarterback Blaine Gabbert. The elder Gabbert went high in the draft and spent several seasons as a starter before a backup role with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Brett Gabbert doesn’t just have the name. He can play. Gabbert threw for 26 touchdowns against six interceptions last season.
“Brett Gabbart, everybody knows that last name, his brother Blaine is still in the NFL,” Miami head coach Chuck Martin said, via the Cincinnati Enquirer. “Whatever is in Gabbert’s genes is pretty amazing. He came in and we had a three-horse race in camp. We had a redshirt freshman, a redshirt sophomore, and his wrestling.”
“He wasn’t the one that anybody was going to think was going to win the job, just being a true freshman,” Martin added. “He wasn’t a mid-semester kid, so he came in the summer. It was a big battle and all three kids did pretty well and it looked like at times all three kids were going to win the job, but at the end of the day we felt he won the job, so we ruled him out. “
