Terry Wilson To Participate In UK's Pro Day

Exactly 367 days from announcing he'd be transferring away from Kentucky and playing at New Mexico, former Stoops quarterback Terry Wilson will be making his awaited return to Lexington for UK's NFL Pro Day.

On Friday afternoon the football program will host its annual Pro Day in which they'll go through individual drills in front of scouts from across the entire National Football League. Eleven current and former Wildcats will participate in the event.

You might be wondering how or why Terry Wilson will be at Kentucky's event after being removed from the program for over an entire season? He mentioned that he called up Mark Stoops and UK's strength and conditioning staff and asked to be a part of it and they happily agreed to bring him back into town as another participant, giving him his best chance at showing NFL scouts what he's capable of.

The former Wildcat and current Lobo is coming off a 4,494 passing yard collegiate career as he prepares to be potentially picked up by a franchise whether it be as a draft pick or as a free agent. He believes that he has improved so much since Kentucky fans have last seen him in uniform, and thinks he has what it takes to play in the league. "It’s night and day. It’s crazy just to see how I used to throw the ball a couple years back to now. I’m definitely excited to showcase that,” said Terry Wilson in an interview with the Herald-Leader.

He also said that once Pro Day workouts conclude, he's scheduled for a private workout with the Dallas Cowboys. "I know I can play at the next level at the quarterback position. That’s what I’ve been working really hard for."

And returning to Lexington sure seems to mean a lot to him as he still feels a lot of appreciation from the fanbase and enjoyed the time he spent playing for them. “I feel like it’s been unreal, to be honest. There wouldn’t have been another school in this country that I would want to go play football for. I’m BBN for life. All in with Kentucky,” said the star who led Kentucky to its first win at The Swamp in over three decades.

After being pushed out of the picture from a transitioning offense and offensive staff, Terry Wilson moved on to his next destination 1,375 miles away. Although it was really short, his journey at New Mexico lasted just six games before ending his college career with an elbow dislocation, throwing seven touchdowns and four interceptions alongside 1,058 passing yards at a 58% completion rate as the starting quarterback for the Lobos.

Now he returns back tomorrow to where things clicked the most for him post high school.

You can watch it all as Pro Day will start at 11 a.m. on the SEC Network + and will be streamed live on
