SEC football: From Wolpack to Wildcat
Devin Leary, a former standout at NC State, is looking to bring that elite QB play to Kentucky. After a spectacular 2021 season, he was cut short last year by a pec injury after six games that ended his season.
If you’ve even kind of been paying attention these last two years you know what Leary can do. In that 2021 season, he threw for 3,433 yards, 35 scores, and just five interceptions.
In 2022 before he got hurt he threw for 1,265 yards, 11 touchdowns, and four interceptions.
Really the only question mark coming into this season for Devin is his health. Will his pec hold up, and will it restrict what he can do on the field?
If he is fully healthy and returns to 2021 form, there’s no reason he couldn’t work his way up into the top three on this list.
But for now, he’s at six because of his health, and the fact that Kentucky’s offense might not be a great place to air it out consistently.
Leary is a clear cut top three QB in the SEC East and has the chance to be dynamic for the Wildcats.
