Part 1 - Class of 2009 Offense

Part One of our look at some of the offensive members of the Wildcats Class of 2009.

Terrell Mitchell – Powder Springs High School

Projected Position: TE Mitchell is a big catch for Kentucky and a player fitted for the direction of the offensive scheme the Wildcats have been building towards. With a top-notch passer in the class Mitchell is a welcome addition to the class and should provide a giant target capable of blocking and making big plays. A polished pass catcher Mitchell will need to work on his blocking to become the total package.

Grade: A

Fills Need: Yes

Biggest Question: How soon will it take Mitchell to make it onto the field?

--------------------

Josh Morgan – Pasadena Junior College

Projected Position: Running Back

Built with size and speed Morgan will have a chance to enter UK and compete for playing time early. But while junior college players are hit & miss at the next level, Morgan has a better chance to be a hit.

Grade: C+

Fills Need: Yes

Biggest Question: Can Morgan come in and hit the field running?

--------------------

Patrick Ligon – Christian Brothers High School

Projected Position: OG/C

Ligon may not be well known but that doesn't mean he won't be a player capable of helping the Wildcats win. As the Joker era nears the offense will be looking for mobile linemen and Ligon fits the bill.

Grade: C+

Fills Need: Yes

Biggest Question: Will Ligon fill out in the weight room and make an impact in the coming years?

--------------------

Donald Russell – William T. Dwyer High School

Projected Position: RB

Russell much like Josh Morgan will be looked upon to give the running back position depth fast. A prospect with nice size and speed, Russell will be tested early and often to see if he's ready for the rigors of the SEC.

Grade: B-

Fills Need: Yes

Biggest Question: How long will it take for Russell to contribute?

--------------------

Chris Matthews – Los Angeles Harbor Junior College

Big target with the size and speed needed to make a difference on the field of play. Has the ability to cause problems for defenses because of his skills. Should be a factor when he takes the field.

Grade: A

Fills Need: Yes

Biggest Question: Will Matthews have an impact early?
