University of Kentucky linebacker Josh Allen will not be headed to the NFL Draft after all. According to the UK Athletics Twitter account, the outside linebacker is actually returning for his senior season as a Wildcat.
This is a huge turn of events for Coach Mark Stoops, as Allen was one of the best pass rushers in the SEC the last two years. Allen, Denzil Ware and Joshua Paschal will form a very formidable set of edge rushers and will provide stability to the UK defensive line. It will be interesting to see how many, if any, early entrants UK has this season. Mike Edwards, UK’s star safety, has indicated through tweets to teammates that he could return to Wildcats, as well.
