Jacquez Jones will take advantage of an extra year and return to Kentucky for the 2022 season, he announced on social media Sunday.
The starting inside linebacker led the Wildcats in tackles during the regular season, totaling 86 tackles, 3.5 tackles for loss, and 0.5 sacks.
Jones missed the Citrus Bowl victory vs. Iowa with an injury.
Sunday has been a good day for the UK program. In addition to Jones, UK linebacker Jordan Wright also announced he will return to Kentucky next season.
The two veteran defensive players will help anchor Brad White’s defense in 2022.
