  • Hoskins ready to play

    By LARRY VAUGHT

    He kept hearing that he would not be ready to play when Kentucky's season opened after having offseason surgery on both shoulders.

    Junior college transfer Phil Hoskins never quit believing. He was convinced he would not only be on campus, but would be ready to help UK's defensive front Sept. 2 when the Cats open the season.

    Kentucky coach Mark Stoops said in mid-July he hoped Hoskins would be ready by late September. But guess what? Now both Stoops and Hoskins say he's ready to go.

    The defensive end said both his doctors and UK's team doctors think he's about ready to play.

    "I feel good. The typical recovery time for my stuff was four to six months. I am getting close to five months, so I think I am good," Hoskins said at UK's media day.

    The 6-5, 280-pound Hoskins could provide needed help/depth at defensive end. He has three years of eligibility remaining and knows Kentucky needs him to help this season.

    "I want to get playing time. Ive been doing whatever I can to get better: watch film, study my plays. Once I can do that, the God-given ability is there," Hoskins said.

    Kentucky had trouble stopping the run last season, especially on third down plays. Hoskins said Stoops told him a priority this season was stopping the run -- and that suits him.

    "I am a fast, aggressive player," Hoskins said. "I want to get after people and make plays."

    Gunnar Hoak or Terry Wilson?

    The board seems to like to speculate so do you have an opinion on who you think will be the starter Game 1? If you don't and just want to discuss then

    Great example of a writer having a point and leading the interviewee in the direction to fill in the box.

    Thanks Coach Riley.
