The Kentucky Wildcats offseason full of exciting news continued Wednesday as defensive tackle Phil Hoskins announced the NCAA approved his sixth-year waiver.

Hoskins who’s last season was supposed to be 2019, missed the entire year after being suspended for the first two games and then suffering a knee injury prior to Kentucky’s week three game against Florida.

The 6-5 defensive tackle arrived at Kentucky in 2017 after spending time at junior college in Kansas.

In 2018, Hoskins appeared in all 13 games for the Wildcats recording 21 total tackles and three sacks. 

His most memorable moment came in Kentucky’s streak snapping victory over Florida when he sacked Gators quarterback Felipe Franks.

With Hoskins returning, Kentucky’s defensive line that is losing Calvin Taylor and T.J. Carter will have much more experience with Quinton Bohanna also set to return.
