After breaking out this summer at Manning Passing Academy, Kentucky QB Will Levis is looking to make a similar jump in the second year with the Wildcats.

Speaking to “Locked on SEC” recently, Levis said he would like to avoid comparisons to Burrow. But at the same time, he sees the similarities and he’s looking to make it big this fall.

I’m not going to compare my story to anyone else, but I mean I think it’s a similar situation. That’s honestly what I hope, so we’ll see.

Additionally, Levis continued his media tours with an appearance on the “The Zach Gelb Show“, saying he thinks he could be a high pick in next year’s draft.

As long as we have the season as we hope, then everything else will fall into place… I’m confident in my abilities and I think I have the potential to be a first-round pick. I just have to make sure I can prove it on the pitch in everything I do from now on.

After a three-year career with the Nittany Lions, Will Levis transferred to Kentucky showed his abilities in the SEC: completing 66% of his passes and throwing for 24 touchdowns.

If he has a second season like Joe Burrow, watch out…
