Gators have scout report on Will Levis, who adds an aerial dimension to Kentucky and can ‘do it all’ – The Athletic

GAINESVILLE, Fla – This isn’t the kind of streak schedule we’re talking about: Over the past three years, Kentucky has been dead last in the SEC in touchdown passes.

That 37-game streak with just 30 touchdowns is an underwater ratio that, service academies aside, feels entirely dated in contemporary college football.

Kentucky might have looked repulsive for a quarterback with strong arms – unless you’re the type who understands the upside. And for the Will Levis transfer, few places offered so much. The guy who showed up this summer and quickly landed the starting position early in camp is now 4-0. His seven passing touchdowns already match the number accumulated by all Wildcats quarterbacks in 2020.

Two of Levis’ former Penn State teammates will play for Florida number 10 on Saturday night when they face off at Kroger Field.

“Anyone who watches SEC football can see clearly that they can stream it when they need it,” said Gators nose tackle Antonio Valentino, who transferred from Penn State in January. “I think he’s playing in an attack he’s very comfortable in, and he has the tools around him to really show what he can do.”

Valentino got to know Levis when they were lifting partners during offseason training with the Nittany Lions. These are bareback sessions when teammates dig deep or crack.

“He’s not very easily upset. He’s very willful, very strong in his spirit, ”Valentino told his Florida teammates at this week’s defensive line meetings.
