Cats have a quick study at safety
By Chip Cosby / email@example.com
During the first practice of fall camp, Kentucky safety Mychal Bailey admitted he didn't know what he was doing.
"I felt kind of lost," Bailey said.
That was understandable. After all, Bailey had spent two years in more of a freelancing system at Southwest Mississippi Community College and didn't arrive in Lexington until the week of pre-season camp after taking classes over the summer to get enrolled.
Realistically, most had Bailey pegged for special teams and maybe an occasional backup rep or two at safety.
But Bailey has made a rapid rise up the depth chart and, with the season opener at Louisville less than two weeks away, chances are good that Bailey could be in the starting lineup next to Winston Guy at safety. Bailey worked with the first unit during UK's second fall scrimmage on Saturday, and Coach Joker Phillips said Bailey looked like 'the fastest guy on the field on either side of the ball.'
