Jordan Wright will return to Kentucky for the 2022 season, he announced on social media Sunday afternoon.
The UK linebacker is returning to take advantage of an extra year. He released the following statement.
“First and foremost I want to thank God because without him I wouldn’t be in the position I’m in now. It’s a blessing to have earned my degree and to be apart of the historical change of the UK Football program. I want to thank my family, coaches, teammates, and Big Blue Nation for all the love and support through the ups and downs through the season.
“With that being said, I’d like to announce that I will be returning to further my football endeavors with Kentucky. I have goals that I individually would like to obtain for myself as well as my team. Returning will allow me to grow and develop to pursue my dreams of playing in the NFL and help my team win the SEC.”
