Redshirt sophomore center Jon Toth has been named the Southeastern Conference’s Offensive Lineman of the Week after an impressive performance in Kentucky 59-14 rout of UT-Martin.
Toth, who is in his second year as a starter, helped paved the way for 234 rushing yards in the Cats’ opener.
Just a sophomore, he is already establishing himself as one of the best centers in the SEC, and is currently considered to be the sixth-best center nationally in his NFL draft class.
Jon Toth is the 6th ranked C in his NFL draft class. This will change. Transitioned from position of concern to team strength.
