Sihiem King Named No. 2 Running Back

08/22/2017 05:49 PM

Offensive coordinator Eddie Gran made it clear today that junior running back Sihiem King is the No. 2 back behind sophomore Benny Snell.

“There’s no doubt about that right now,” said Gran. “He’s number two.”

King beat out redshirt freshman A.J. Rose for the second running back spot. The 5-9, 172 pound back rushed for 81 yards and and one touchdown in 2016.

Starting running back Benny Snell talked about how his rushing style will compliment Sihiem King’s style in the Kentucky backfield.

“It’s kind of like last year but it’s just different. It’s just flipped,” said Snell. “I can get the yards, the power yards. He’s real quick and can get the explosive runs.”
