2013 SPRING

OUTLOOK

percentage of passes, gets the ball to playmakers with space to operate, moves the chains and generates points. One difference is likely to be a more significant commitment to the running game. “The base plays haven’t changed,” Brown said upon arrival at UK. “What we have done is make a concerted effort to run the football. We are playing at a faster pace and we dress up those plays with motions and different formations. Those are the differences that fans are going to notice.” The learning curve on offense could be scaled quicker than one might expect – “We can install the entire offense in three days,” Brown said – but the choice of starting quarterback is not expected until August. “Certainly having your leaders identified helps but we’re not going to force that,” Stoops said. “I want to be fair to everyone involved and make sure we make the right decision.” The contenders include three returning sophomores, along with a mid-year freshman enrollee and a redshirt freshman. Maxwell Smith began the 2012 season as the starter before being injured and eligible for a medical hardship. In three full games and one series of a fourth game, Smith completed 103 of 150 passes (68.7 percent) for 975 yards and eight touchdowns. He should be ready for spring after recovery from the injury. A pair of true freshmen, Jalen Whitlow and Patrick Towles, saw most of the playing time in Smith’s absence. Whitlow started the final seven games, completing 54 percent for 801 yards and three touchdowns. He also can make plays with his legs, running for 206 net yards and three TDs. Towles completed 19 of 40 passes for 233 yards and one score. Reese Phillips, a mid-year enrollee, was a two-time all-state performer in high school and is noted for his accuracy. Redshirt freshman Jeff Witthuhn showed ability last season in practice. Understandably, the Wildcat wide receivers are eager to get the spring going. The top returnees include junior Demarco Robinson (28 catches for 297 yards last season) and sophomores Daryl Collins (17 for 171), A.J. Legree (12 for 113) and DeMarcus Sweat (4 for 84, including two TDs). Two more sophs, Bookie Cobbins and Rashad Cunningham, will be in the mix. Tight ends in this offense can play in a traditional role and also serve as wideouts. There are five seniors, Anthony Kendrick, Ronnie Shields, Jordan Aumiller, Tyler Robinson and Patrick Ligon. Steven Borden, who played tight end in junior college, has good speed and could transition into a full-time role as a wide receiver. Running backs see plenty of action both as runners and pass receivers. Senior Raymond Sanders led the team in rushing last season with 669 yards, a 5.4-yard average per carry, and five touchdowns. He caught 18 passes. Senior Jonathan George ran for 504 yards, averaging 4.7 yards, and tallied four TDs. He also picked up 21 catches for 223 yards and a score. The seniors have some talented competition. Dyshawn Mobley picked up 184 yards last season as a true freshman and redshirt Justin Taylor displayed good skills in practice. The unknown factor is sophomore Josh Clemons, who has been out since the middle of 2011 season. He rushed for 279 yards that year, combining speed, strength and the ability to make tacklers miss. A healthy return would be a big boost for the backfield. Junior D.J. Warren is a capable fullback when the staff opts to use two-back sets and Cody Jones provides solid depth there. There is plenty to work to do up front following the departure of the top two linemen from last season. Three regulars return – junior left tackle Darrian Miller, sophomore left guard Zach West and senior right tackle Kevin Mitchell. The coaching staff will spend the spring evaluating the linemen to find the best five-man unit, so some of the players could get looks at multiple positions.

New coaching staffs bring new playing systems, so it will be a steep learning curve for the Wildcats – veterans and younger players alike – in the spring of 2013. New head coach Mark Stoops begins the process inheriting 57 lettermen, including 12 primary returning starters from last season. However, a byproduct of the youth of the team and the injuries sustained a year ago is that 32 returnees have started at least one game during their careers. “It’s important for us to get a foundation of who we are offensively, get that offensive identity. Defensively, the same thing, a good understanding of our base calls and who we are and how we want to do things,” Stoops said of his team goals for the first spring. “Along with the base execution of our offense and defense, it’s important to build some toughness, some confidence and have an understanding of the work ethic we need. “Along with the identity will be the tempo and speed in which we’re going to operate, being able to handle that on offense and defense. That’s a big part of who we are.” Spring drills begin March 18. The coach has much to accomplish before the Blue/White Game on April 13 and will be methodical in doing so. “That doesn’t have to be a goal to know who exactly who our starters are (by the end of spring),” Stoops said. “That’s going to be a work in progress at a lot of positions. We anticipate many battles going through this spring, going through the summer and into the first game.”

OFFENSE Ironically, going into the spring the new Kentucky offense might be more familiar to the fans than it is to the players. Under offensive coordinator Neal Brown, a Wildcat player in the late 1990s, the UK scheme will have similarities to the popular “Air Raid” offense that the fans saw during that time. The basic premise remains the same: a spread attack that completes a high Wide receiver Daryl Collins caught 17 passes last season and also showed some elusiveness on punt and kickoff returns.

Tiller broke up a pair of passes. Junior Eric Simmons hopes to break into the playing rotation. Six safeties with playing experience include senior Dakotah Tyler, juniors Ashely Lowery and Eric Dixon and sophomores Glenn Faulkner, Daron Blaylock and Zack Blaylock. Lowery started most of last season, gathering 43 tackles and an interception. Tyler will have to miss the spring while recovering from injury but plans to return in August. Redshirt freshmen Josh Harris and Sterling Wright will be in the competition as well.

Also in the hunt for starting roles will be juniors Teven Eatmon-Nared, Tyler Davenport and Max Godby; sophomores Jordan Swindle, John Gruenschlaeger and Shaquille Love; and redshirt freshmen Jon Toth, T.J. Jones, Jordan Watson, Zach Myers and Bill Davis. Swindle saw some action last year as a reserve tackle, as did Eatmon-Nared at guard.

DEFENSE Coach Mark Stoops and defensive coordinator D.J. Eliot will use a 4-3 base alignment with the flexibility to play numerous fronts and coverages. The coaches’ system was adept against the run and the pass while rebuilding the Florida State defense into a championship unit. “We try to be good in all areas,” Stoops said. “We want to be a dominant defense, multiple enough to play sound base defense but also change it up with pressures and be multiple in all our fronts. We’re going to do what we have to do to be successful, week in and week out.” The coaches will have starters returning at the tackles and linebackers but must rebuild the end positions and defensive backfield. Four veterans are back at tackle, including seniors Donte Rumph, Mister Cobble and Tristian Johnson along with junior Christian Coleman. Rumph made 36 tackles last season and six tackles for loss, including four quarterback sacks. Cobble accounted for 25 stops, including three TFL and a pair of sacks. Johnson emerged as a starter in the second half of the campaign after Cobble was sidelined. He made 27 tackles and showed some pass-rush ability with 1.5 sacks while leading the team in quarterback hurries with five. Coleman saw limited playing time last season and hopes to return to the form he showed as a freshman when he made 21 tackles. In addition, Thomas Chapman and Patrick Graffree showed potential during their redshirt freshman seasons. Former linebacker Jabari Johnson will be tried at tackle during the spring. Both starting ends have graduated, leaving plenty of playing time available. One spot is likely to be filled by Alvin “Bud” Dupree, who is slated to play end during the spring after splitting time between linebacker and end during his previous two seasons. Playing mostly at linebacker a year ago, he accounted for 91 total tackles, 12.5 tackles for loss and six quarterback sacks, ranking in the top 10 of the Southeastern Conference in all three categories. Additional returning ends include juniors Mike Douglas, Alvin Davis and TraVaughn Pascal, sophomore Farrington Huguenin and redshirt freshman Langston Newton. Douglas and Davis also have played tackle during their careers and could end up at the inside positions. Newcomer Za’Darius Smith, a junior college All-America end in 2012, looks to make an impact during the spring. Assuming Dupree stays at end, there will be two starters returning at linebacker. In the middle, senior Avery Williamson totaled 135 tackles last season, good for second in the SEC. A solid all-around player, he added 4.5 tackles for loss, three sacks, an interception, four pass breakups and caused two fumbles. Junior Miles Simpson manned the weakside post, totaling 70 tackles and breaking up four passes. Six additional linebacker returnees provide depth while challenging for playing time, including juniors Malcolm McDuffen, Kory Brown and Tyler Brause and sophomores Khalid Henderson, Pancho Thomas and Demarius Rancifer. Henderson saw the most playing time among the reserves last season with 26 tackles. Numerous injuries wracked the defensive backfield a year ago, so although three starters have departed, there are numerous players available who have seen significant playing time. At cornerback, Cody Quinn, J.D. Harmon and Fred Tiller saw extensive action last season, all as true freshmen. Harmon led the team in interceptions with two and broke up four passes. Quinn led the team in breakups with five while

SPECIAL TEAMS The new staff will include special teams work in the spring and has returning starters at all specialist positions except placekicker. Senior Joe Mansour, who has handled kickoffs for three seasons, and some walk-on candidates will vie for the open placekicker job. Punter Landon Foster earned Freshman All-America honors last season while averaging 42.9 yards per punt. Long snapper Kelly Mason and holder Jared Leet did a good job in their roles. Several players saw action last season as punt and kickoff returners, including Demarco Robinson, Daryl Collins, DeMarcus Sweat, Raymond Sanders and Dyshawn Mobley. Defensive tackle Tristian Johnson entered the lineup during the second half of the season. He accounted for 27 tackles, rushed the passer well with 1.5 sacks and five quarterback hurries, and returned a fumble for a touchdown.

CAT SCRATCHES averaging more than 40 points and 485 yards per game. Under Eliot’s guidance, the FSU defense limited the Huskies to only 10 points and 259 total yards.

N E W C O O R D I N AT O R S R I D I N G WAV E O F SUCCESS Kentucky’s new offensive and defensive coordinators, Neal Brown and D.J. Eliot, come to Lexington riding a wave of success in recent seasons. Brown was offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach the last three years at Texas Tech. In all three seasons, Tech ranked in the nation’s top-10 teams in passing offense, top 15 in total offense and top 25 in scoring offense, and increased production in all three categories each year since 2010. TTU finished the 2012 season scoring 37.5 points per game, passing for 355.9 yards per game, and piling up 495.8 total offensive yards per game. Eliot served as defensive ends coach under coordinator Mark Stoops the last three seasons at Florida State. The FSU defense zoomed from 108th in the nation in total defense in 2009, the year before their arrival, to second in the nation in that category last season. The 2012 FSU defense allowed a mere 254.1 yards per game. With Stoops having resigned to assume the Kentucky head coaching post in December, Eliot took over as defensive coordinator for FSU during the 2013 Orange Bowl. FSU’s opponent was Northern Illinois, which entered the game

P L E N T Y O F C O N T E N D E R S AT QUARTERBACK The position likely to draw most of the media and public attention during the spring will be at quarterback as three sophomores, a redshirt freshman and an incoming freshman will vie for the position. Maxwell Smith has played parts of the last two seasons. In 12 games, he has completed 61.7 percent of his passes for 1,794 yards and 12 touchdowns. A quick decision maker and accurate passer, he should be fully recovered from the ankle surgery that ended his 2012 season early. Jalen Whitlow and Patrick Towles each saw action last season as true freshmen. Whitlow started the last seven games, completing 54 percent of his passes for 801 yards and three touchdowns. Whitlow also showed the ability to make plays with his feet, rushing for 206 net yards and three touchdowns. Towles played five games as a reserve and threw for 233 yards and one TD. Additional contenders are redshirt freshman Jeff Witthuhn and incoming freshman Reese Phillips. Phillips graduated a semester early from Signal Mountain (Tenn.) High School, where he totaled more than 4,000 passing yards and 36 touchdowns over the last two seasons.

Kentucky was one of the most inexperienced teams in the nation last season, playing 14 true freshmen and 27 total freshmen. One of them was punter Landon Foster, who averaged 42.9 yards per punt and earned first-team Freshman All-America honors.

L E A D I N G TA C K L E R S R E T U R N O N DEFENSE Kentucky’s top three tacklers from last season, Avery Williamson, Bud Dupree and Miles Simpson, return for the 2013 season. Williamson made 135 tackles a year ago, finishing second in the Southeastern Conference in total stops. The senior added 4.5 tackles for loss, three quarterback sacks, four pass breakups, a pass interception, caused two fumbles and recovered a fumble. Dupree made 91 tackles and his marvelous athleticism helped him lead the team with 12.5 tackles for loss and 6.5 quarterback sacks. He finished in the top 10 in the SEC in all three of those categories. He has split time between strongside linebacker and end during his two seasons. He is slated to play end in the spring. Simpson made 70 tackles at weakside linebacker, featuring a quarterback sack, four pass breakups and a fumble recovery.

C AT S C E L L A N E O U S · Two potentially key players who missed all of the 2012 season because of injury hope to return in spring practice. Sophomore tailback Josh Clemons has been out since midseason 2011 because of a knee injury. He showed great promise in the first half of 2011, rushing for 279 yards and two touchdowns. Sophomore safety Glenn Faulkner did not play last season because of an ankle injury. He played 11 games as a freshman in 2010 and hopes to return to playing contention. · Kentucky was one of the nation’s most inexperienced teams last season. UK played 14 true freshmen, ranking sixth in the nation. A total of 27 freshmen played, including redshirt freshmen, which was fourth in the country. · Last season, tailback Raymond Sanders became the 33rd player in school history to rush for more than 1,000 yards in his career. Sanders enters his senior season with 1,078 rushing yards as a Wildcat.

WHAT THEY’RE SAYING ABOUT MARK STOOPS W H E N M A R K S T O O P S WA S INTRODUCED AS HEAD COACH

“I’m very proud of him. Very happy for him. He got an opportunity to go on and further his career and it’s something he wants to do. I’m happy for him. I think he’s a hard worker. He cares about what he does. He’s very diligent about what he does. He truly loves coaching.” -- Florida State Head Coach Jimbo Fisher

“He is one of those assistant coaches who has been elevating his game as a defensive coordinator … He has great pedigree being a Stoops brother and the fact that he has worked with some outstanding head coaches helps his cause. I think he is ready to go (be a head coach). That is a great choice (for Kentucky).” – ESPN analyst Kirk Herbstreit

“I was more happy for Coach Stoops than anything. He’s a coach that’s put in his work. He doesn’t have to explain that it’s best for him and his family and sets him up for what he needs. That’s a blessing for him. He’s a great man and he deserves it.” -- Florida State defensive back Lamarcus Joyner

“The more I learn about the youngest of the three college-coaching Stoops brothers, the more I like about what Mitch Barnhart did in luring him to Lexington. Stoops turned around Florida State’s defense in short order, which was impressive (and why he got the job), but I really like the way he’s gone about hiring a young, respected staff.” – Travis Haney of ESPN.com, who rated Stoops as the second-best coaching hire in the nation.

REACTION FROM COACH STOOPS’ FIRST RECRUITING CLASS Zac Ellis of Sports Illustrated graded the recruiting performance of the 16 new head coaches in the BCS automatic qualifying conferences. Mark Stoops and Auburn’s Gus Malzahn were the only ones to receive a grade of “A.” “Kentucky locked up an impressive crop of signees,” Ellis wrote. “Stoops managed to lure 6-foot-3 250-pound defensive end Jason Hatcher away from USC, effectively putting a bow on the highest-rated Kentucky class in more than a decade. Four-star safety Marcus McWilson also added to the haul, and the Wildcats’ class came in No. 28 in Rivals.com’s final rankings; Kentucky finished no higher than 50th in any of the previous three cycles. It’s too soon to tell if the program is primed for a renaissance under Stoops, but this freshman class will certainly be intriguing to watch.”

“I think he’s one of the big reasons for the turnaround at Florida State. He’s just done a fantastic job. I think Jimbo Fisher himself would say he’s probably the biggest reason for their turnaround.” – Legendary Florida State Head Coach Bobby Bowden “If it was a 3-2 pitch in the bottom of the ninth with the game on the line, then Mitch Barnhart has hit a long drive that’s headed straight for the seats. Time will tell if it’s a round-tripper, but from this vantage point it sure looks like Barnhart has hit a home run … “ – John Clay, Lexington Herald-Leader

“After a very successful signing day,” wrote Edward Aschoff of ESPN.com, “Stoops’ popularity is surging throughout the Bluegrass State. His class was extremely balanced and met Kentucky’s major needs. “Thanks to relentless recruiting efforts from UK’s staff, Stoops’ bunch moved in front of the eight ball with some big, late splashes.”

“If new Kentucky coach Mark Stoops’ results are any indication, UK’s defense can expect quick and sustained improvement. As a defensive coordinator at Florida State (2010-12) and Arizona (2003-09), Stoops inherited defenses ranked outside the top 100 in yards per game. Both teams improved to the top 25 by the end of his time.” – Aaron Smith, CatsIllustrated.com

HEAD COACH

MARK STOOPS The impact of Mark Stoops as the new head coach at Kentucky has been both immediate and remarkable. The announcement on Nov. 27, 2012, that the Florida State defensive coordinator was coming to Kentucky unleashed a torrent of enthusiasm. Wildcat fans immediately swamped the ticket office with phone calls, renewing season tickets or buying new ones, and competed to come up with the catchiest slogan for the new era of UK football (“Stoops Troops … Don’t Stoops Believin’ … Stoops, There He Is! ... Unstoopable!”). After staying in Tallahassee long enough to help guide the Seminoles to a win in the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game, Stoops was introduced on Dec. 2 to a cheering throng of Wildcat supporters who were captivated by his vision and passion for UK’s football future. The momentum continued in the hiring process as Stoops’ first move was to bring D.J. Eliot, considered one of the bright, young minds in college football, from FSU to lead the UK defense. Next, Stoops lured former Wildcat player Neal Brown, one of the nation’s most accomplished offensive coordinators at Texas Tech, home to Lexington. Stoops completed his staff with a set of hungry, relentless coaches, averaging under 38 years of age, who combine intensity and a history of success. That success translated instantly on the recruiting trail. Inheriting a class ranked in the 60s by the national evaluation services, the coaches secured 14 new commitments in two months. UK’s national rankings zoomed into the 20s and 30s, an incredible performance given the short time available, including a No. 28 ranking by Rivals.com that is Kentucky’s highest ever in the 12-year history of the ratings. Now, Stoops turns his attention to spring practice, where he plans to begin the turnaround of Wildcat on-field fortunes. Part of the acclaimed Stoops coaching family, he has a history of dramatic 14

improvements during his time as defensive coordinator at Florida State and Arizona. Stoops has been defensive coordinator at FSU for the last three seasons, inheriting a unit ranked 108th in the NCAA in total defense and turning it into one of the nation’s best. In the 2012 season, the Seminoles were second in the nation in total defense, allowing 254.1 yards per game, and sixth nationally in scoring defense at 14.7 points per game. Playing well against the run and the pass, FSU was third in the country in rushing defense and led the nation in pass defense. FSU led the ACC in seven defensive categories. Stoops also coached the defensive backs under head coach Jimbo Fisher. Eight Seminoles on defense earned 2012 AllACC honors, including four first-team selections, highlighted by one of the nation’s top defensive end duos in Bjoern Werner and Cornellius Carradine, who combined for 24 sacks and 31 tackles for loss. Werner was a finalist for the 2012 Bronko Nagurski Award as the National Defensive Player of the Year and was among the national leaders in sacks with 13. Stoops also coached cornerback Ronald Darby to ACC Defensive Rookie of the Year. The Seminoles’ prowess was a continuation of the 2011 season, when Stoops’ defenders led the nation in fewest yards allowed per carry (2.3), ranked fourth in the nation in total defense (275 yards per game), second in rushing defense (82.7 ypg), fourth in scoring defense (15.1 points per game), and eighth in tackles for loss (8.6 per game) and quarterback sacks (3.1 per game). FSU led the ACC in eight defensive categories. Stoops overhauled the Florida State defense in 2010, his first season as defensive coordinator. The Seminoles gave up 19.6 points per game, third-best in the ACC and 20th nationally. FSU ranked 42nd nationally in total defense that season; in contrast,


the team was 108th nationally in total defense and 94th in scoring defense in 2009, the year before Stoops’ arrival. FSU improved its overall defense by more than 80 yards per game, primarily by limiting opponents to 75 fewer rushing yards per game. The Seminoles ranked third in the nation in quarterback sacks and were 21st in tackles for loss. In the secondary, Stoops coached Xavier Rhodes to ACC Defensive Rookie of the Year honors and National Defensive Freshman of the Year accolades. During Stoops’ three seasons, FSU went 10-4, 9-4 and 12-2, including wins over South Carolina in the 2010 Chick-fil-A Bowl, Notre Dame in the 2011 Champs Sports Bowl and Northern Illinois in the 2013 Orange Bowl. Stoops was defensive coordinator and DBs coach at Arizona from 2004-09, working for his brother, Mike, who was head coach of the Wildcats. During Mark’s time there, Arizona’s records improved steadily, going 3-8, 3-8, 6-6, 5-7, 8-5 and 8-5. The Wildcats advanced to the Las Vegas Bowl and Holiday Bowl during the last two years. Mark and Mike are also brothers of Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops, with Mark being the youngest of the three. Mike is currently the defensive coordinator on Bob’s staff at Oklahoma. Stoops inherited an Arizona unit that was 109th in the nation in total defense and 107th in scoring defense in 2003, the year before he arrived. By the end of his term at Arizona, the Wildcats ranked in the nation’s top 25 in total defense his final two seasons and ranked as high as 33rd in scoring defense. Prior to Arizona, Stoops coached the defensive backs three years at Miami (Fla.). The 2001 national champion Hurricanes led the nation in pass efficiency defense, scoring defense and turnover margin. That team also established a school record with 27 interceptions and 45 total takeaways. Stoops’ 2002 secondary led the nation in pass defense and pass efficiency defense. Despite having to replace all four starters in the defensive backfield, the 2003 team led the nation in pass defense. In his three seasons, Miami went 35-3, including the 12-0 Rose Bowl title campaign, plus appearances in the Fiesta and Orange bowls. Ten Miami defensive backs who played at least one season under Stoops were eventually selected in the National Football League draft – seven in the first round. Stoops got his first experience in leading a defense as co-defensive coordinator at Houston in the 2000 season. He coached the secondary at Wyoming from 1997-99 and the Cowboys notched three straight winning seasons. A highlight of his time there was a school-record 24 interceptions in the ’97 season. His first full-time coaching job was

in 1996 at South Florida, helping USF in the startup of its program before the Bulls had their first kickoff in ’97. Stoops has recruited and developed numerous outstanding defensive backs, many of whom went on to National Football League careers. Among the notables are Antoine Cason and Michael Johnson at Arizona, Miami’s Philip Buchanon, Kelly Jennings, Brandon Meriweather, Ed Reed, Antrel Rolle, Mike Rumph and Sean Taylor and Wyoming’s Brian Lee. Stoops was raised in Youngstown, Ohio. Like

his brothers, Mark played in the secondary at the University of Iowa for Hall of Fame coach Hayden Fry. He participated in four bowl games as a player. Fry hired Stoops as a graduate assistant coach at Iowa in the 1990 and ’91 seasons. The Hawkeyes won the 1990 Big Ten title and played in the Rose Bowl, duplicating feats Stoops also achieved as a player. Stoops went on to coach four years in high school before entering the collegiate ranks. Stoops and his wife, Chantel, have two sons, Will and Zack.
