LEXINGTON, Ky. — Kentucky linebacker Danny Trevathan will return to the Wildcats for his senior season.
The junior announced Friday on his Twitter feed he has “unfinished business.”
Trevathan led the Southeastern Conference with 144 tackles and was third in the league in both tackles for loss and fumbles forced.
Trevathan said following Kentucky’s loss to Pittsburgh in the BBVA Compass Bowl he had received positive feedback from NFL scouting services but wasn’t sure whether he was ready to make the leap to the pro ranks.
His return is good news for the Wildcats, who could return their top 11 tacklers next fall. It came a day after junior wide receiver Randall Cobb announced he was skipping his senior year to head to the NFL.
