Every week, On3 is releasing positional rankings in preparation for the upcoming weekend of college football. For Kentucky, not a ton of people are paying attention to the Wildcats as they’ve quietly handled business against two MAC opponents and one FCS foe during a three-game homestand to begin the season.

Things are now going to heat up with SEC play beginning this weekend when the Wildcats take on Vanderbilt on the road. Offensive coordinator Liam Coen‘s unit will look to take advantage of a leaky secondary in FirstBank Stadium on Saturday afternoon. Devin Leary will be targeting a top-25 receiver during the contest.

  1. Marvin Harrison Jr. (Ohio State)
  2. Rome Odunze (Washington)
  3. Malik Nabers (LSU)
  4. Xavier Worthy (Texas)
  5. Keon Coleman (Florida State)
  6. Evan Stewart (Texas A&M)
  7. Roman Wilson (Michigan)
  8. Tre Harris (Ole Miss)
  9. Xavier Legette (South Carolina)
  10. Jalen McMillan (Washington)
  11. Emeka Egbuka (Ohio State(
  12. Tory Horton (Colorado State)
  13. Luther Burden III (Missouri
  14. J.Michael Sturdivant (UCLA)
  15. Jacob Cowing (Arizona)
  16. Johnny Wilson (Florida State)
  17. Erik Brooks (Fresno State)
  18. Jamari Thrash (Louisville)
  19. Tayvion Robinson (Kentucky)
  20. Xavier Weaver (Colorado)
  21. Troy Franklin (Oregon)
  22. AD Mitchell (Texas)
  23. Xavier Restrepo (Miami)
  24. Kobe Hudson (UCF)
  25. Jimmy Horn Jr. (Colorado)

Through three games, Tayvion Robinson leads the team in targets (23), receptions (14), receiving yards (260), and receiving touchdowns (three). Robinson’s success rate (56.5%) is easily the best mark of Kentucky’s starting wideout. The former Virginia Tech transfer is quickly becoming a favorite target for Leary.

Look for Tayvion Robinson to play a big role again on Saturday. The super senior is on pace for 61 receptions, 1,127 yards, and 13 touchdowns. That would rank as one of the best individual seasons in program history. Regression is likely coming at some point, but Robinson has picked up the slack with Barion Brown and Dane Key going through some growing pains.

Kentucky has multiple quality weapons to utilize in the throw with Tayvion Robinson currently leading the charge.
