Kentucky Football has had quite an off-season in the running back department. With issues in connection to star running back Chris Rodriguez, many fans wondered who would be lining up at tailback for the 2022 season. Although I have plenty of reason to believe Rodriguez will be around this season in some capacity, it appears Kentucky Football is playing it safe.
Today, Ramon Jefferson took to Twitter to announce his decision for the 2022 season.
Jefferson was the second highest rated transfer during the off-season according to 247Sports Transfer Rankings. The Bronx native recorded 1155 rushing yards as well as 13 rushing touchdowns in the 2021 season with the Sam Houston Bearkats, and voted third team All-American by the Associated Press. Prior to joining the Bearkats, Jefferson helped lead Maine to the FCS Semifinals and played for well-known JUCO school Garden City CC, the school in which Terry Wilson played for before joining the Cats.
After the highly rated prospect decommitted from Colorado, Jefferson took a visit to Kentucky in which he seemed to give a nod to the offensive play style and the family atmosphere.
“I really like the offensive scheme, I feel it’ll fit my play style. … The staff and players I spoke with were really down to earth and open, great conference (and Kentucky) has been successful past (few) years,” Jefferson told 247Sports.
