People on here have stated that Sanders will be the man, Taylor, Clemens, George, Mobley, or even if we get the Kemp kid. The way I see it is that we have a NEW Sheriff in town! He's gonna throw them all to Coach Brown, and say we have RB's 1a,1b,1c,1d,1e,1f,1g. Now let them compete, and the ones that want it ...well here you go.
Also once you have it boy....guess what you have 2b,2c,2d,2e,2f,2g right there to take it from you, so you better be ready each practice, each game! I don't remember UK having this much quality depth at RB.....since maybe the Marc Logan, Mark Higgs, George Adams years.
I believe that Coach Brown will use them depending on the package/situation 3rd and short Clemens, George, or Mobley. 3rd and long Sanders, George, or Clemens. Starter will get the bulk of 1st and 2nd down plays during series....then match up the other with package calls etc...
Wonder about Taylor as Kickoff return? Does he have that skill? Sanders, Kemp, Sweat, or Mobley will they be back four on returns? It's so nice have options isn't it?

Kemp or whomever they sign, will be in the mix. Grant is also a stud. dont overlook him
I like the guys the new staff are targeting from a new recruit perspective, but I would be thrilled to see Clemons come back heathly and strong and take over as the key back. I really hope he can overcome the injuries because I remember watching his highlight video and loving his style, not to mention the fact he looked good in some games for UK.
Previous staff seriously short changed JG imo.
I absolutely agree
People have been touting Sanders and the veterans b/c there is SOOOOO much more to being a RB than catching and running. It's very likely that a freshman will not be able to do all aspects of being a RB as much as a veteran.
The way I see the depth chart.
4. Taylor (could be higher......I don't know where to put him, b/c I don't know his skill set)
5. Mobley - wouldn't be surprised if he transfers or is advised to transfer
To imply how the RB situation will play out is foolish until after spring practice. How these kids adapt to the new offense will be the key. They all have the ability, but who adapts the most quickly will probably be the deciding factor. To say any kid may transfer is very premature, especially for the kids who are young and have only played sparingly or not at all.
If Clemons is healthy, he'll be the main man. He is a man amongst boys. I would expect the offense to call for a good deal of rotation at the position though. Still, a healthy Clemons can do it all. Block, catch, run etc.
Ya I'm looking forward to seeing him play.
We've got Mikel Horton 2014 RB from Lakota West in Ohio 4* guy from the same school as Meadows listing us as his favorite as well. So we lose Jon Jon and Ray and possibly gain a 4* RB for next year. We're gonna be loaded for years to come it looks like. Kemp is a difference maker though. We gotta get him on board. He's the playmaker we need in this offense. He's the kinda guy that if he gets to the second level of a defense he can take it to the house.
Also..lets not forget about Te'Vaughn Hurse..a Ohio rb at 5'7 192 that ran a 10.43 100m recovering from a broken ankle..I think this kid could be a sleeper/star. you cant coach 4.2 speed..and hes a load at 5'7 192..hes apparently coming as a walk on..close friends with Khalid henderson!!
But I agree..depth is there..hope Clemons is back to 100%..I thought he could be a special rb for us!
4.2 speed huh? Put that kid in the game somewhere.
