ATHENS-The Joey Gatewood era of Kentucky will begin at noon on Saturday, when the Wildcats will play against the fifth ranked Georgia State.
“He has the key,” Kentucky coach Mark Stopps said in a KSR report. “He is the starting quarterback.”
At 6 feet 5 inches tall and weighing 221 pounds, Datewood replaced Terry Wilson, who was said to have a sore wrist.
Gatewood was named the number one athlete in the United States and was named Elite 11 quarterback in the 2018 class of the year. He chose Auburn instead of Alabama, Clemson and Florida offers, and several other offers from Bartram Trail High School in Jacksonville, Florida.
