Chris Rodriguez is returning to Kentucky for the 2022 season, the UK running back announced Monday.
Rodriguez needs 1,134 yards next season to become UK’s leading career rusher.
“I want to thank God and my parents for putting me in the best position possible to get to where I want to be in life,” Rodriguez wrote in a letter to BBN. “I also want to thank the Big Blue Nation for all of the love and support they’ve given me over the last few years.
“When I signed at UK, my goals were to re-write the record books and be the first in my family to graduate from college. I’m so close to accomplishing both of those goals and because of that, I would like to announce that I will be coming back for another year.
“I know coming back will make me better not only for myself but also my team and the people around me.”
