Earlier one of the Blitzbros, Josh Allen, gave Big Blue Nation some great news when he announced he was coming back to Kentucky. Now, it was All-SEC Safety Mike Edwards’ turn.

One of the best safeties in UK history will be back to lead a loaded secondary that has plenty of room to improve around him. Edwards has now had 2 spectacular seasons and should be an all-conference and/or All-American candidate.

Edwards may not have gotten to the 100 tackle club again, but 96 is pretty good. He also added an extra interception on top of his 3 from his sophomore season.

Edwards coming back will solidify a defense that is going to desperately need leadership and experience to be able to elevate from the 2017 frustrations.
