Kentucky wide receiver La'Rod King knows he needs to step up on the field as a go-to receiver, but he is equally concerned with stepping up off the field as a go-to leader for a youthful receiving corps. "I'm texting them constantly," he says of the young receiving corps. "We want everybody on the same page. ... If you're not on them, they don't know what to do."
King is a big target who snagged 36 passes for 478 yards and four scores despite sharing time with Chris Matthews and Randall Cobb. King could feasibly double that production and his leadership will go far to bring along talented youngsters like Brian Adams.
