LEXINGTON, Ky. – Depth was the buzz word for the Kentucky wide receiver position during preseason camp, but through five games the Wildcats appear to have narrowed in on a shorter rotation at the position.Kentucky wide receiver Ryan Timmons makes one of his five catches for a career-high 114 yards against Mississippi State.“We’re playing four or five guys there,” UK wide receivers coach Tommy Mainord said. “That’s probably all we’ve been playing, but that’s what’s good about this bye week: developing those other guys too. It’s not that they can’t play. It’s that I need to do a better job coaching them, I need to get them better.”Through five games, four Kentucky wide receivers have at least 11 catches. Sophomores Dorian Baker, Garrett Johnson, Blake Bone and Jeff Badet have each caught at least one touchdown. Baker, Johnson and Badet each have more than 200 receiving yards.Baker and Johnson have accounted for 44.8 percent of the team’s catches, but Johnson shied away from labeling himself or Baker as the team’s go-to receiver.“There’s plenty of us who can make plays,” Johnson said. “It’s just whoever gets the opportunity. I feel like most of us are capitalizing on those chances.”Towles learning to deal with scrutinyMeanwhile junior Ryan Timmons, who led Kentucky in catches and receiving yards in 2014, has four catches for 62 yards.“There’s a combination of things,” UK head coach Mark Stoops said. “Ryan needs to do his part, and we need to continue to improve. We’ve worked hard, relentlessly around the clock, to put him in position to be successful. At some point, yeah, another guy has to take those reps, but that’s him or anybody.”Sophomore wide receiver Alex Montgomery recorded his first catch of the season against Eastern Kentucky. Sophomore walk-on Charles Walker recorded his second catch of the year against the Colonels.Mainord hopes the receivers further down the depth can follow Bone’s example after the sophomore backup broke out with seven catches for 85 yards against EKU. He had caught just six passes for 49 yards in the first four games.Inside UK’s last Thursday home game“He prepared himself all week and it showed,” Mainord said. “I think it shows those young guys preparation is important as well, and when they go out and have success after a great week as a coach that’s what you want. You want them to see that and do it again.”Email Jon Hale at [email protected] . Follow him on Twitter @JonHale_CJ .
