Even before the addition of Dare Rosenthal, the Big Blue Wall was in good shape heading into the 2021 season. But just how good will the ‘Cats be with him?
If you ask Mike Farrell, a national columnist for Rivals, he’d tell you that Kentucky Football has the best offensive line in the entire Southeastern Conference. In a “Fact or Fiction” article posted on Friday, Farrell said it was FACT that Kentucky now has the best OL in the SEC. And if that’s the case, one could argue that the Big Blue Wall is the best collection of offensive linemen in the country.

FARRELL’S TAKE: FACT. This is hard to say because there are so many elite offensive lines in the SEC but with the addition of Dare Rosenthal, a starter at left tack for LSU last season, Kentucky is loaded. With Darian Kinnard back at tackle, Jermy Flax would likely push inside and Luke Fortner will likely be the other guard or push inside to center to compete with Quintin Wilson and Kenneth Horsey at center as they try to replace Drake Jackson.
Obviously Alabama, Georgia and others are loaded at offensive line but they don’t have the depth and experience heading into the season that Kentucky has now.
We surely won’t argue with Mr. Farrell, either. Kentucky has legitimate stars on the offensive line with multiple future NFL Draft picks. With the way the ‘Cats continue to recruit offensive line prospects, this may not be the last time we talk about this.
