Demarco Robinson a hot topic at fall camp

Name a Kentucky football-related question and odds are Joker Phillips has fielded it in his question-and-answer sessions with the media after practice. With such a variety of question, there's no telling how many different players will come up in any given interview.

There aren't many times that one player is the answer to as many questions as Demarco Robinson was after UK finished up an "old school" two-a-days Thursday of practices.

Who are the fastest players on the roster?

"Demarco would be one of those guys," Phillips said.

Who is Phillips most excited to see on the field for game day?

"I'm most eager to see, probably, Demarco Robinson," Phillips said. "Again, every time we've been in the stadium, he's made a play. I hope that continues. We need him as a big-play guy."

Will Robinson be able to overcome his slight frame and break off the line of scrimmage unimpeded?

"No, he's got quicks," Phillips said. "I think he has enough quicks and I think we'll line him up in enough different spots that you can't always say, 'We're going to press him.' He's inside sometimes, he's outside on both sides."

In answering the same question, Phillips elaborated even more on why he believes Robinson will make such an impact in 2012.

"He's becoming a guy you can depend on," Phillips said. "He made a 4.0 (grade-point average) this summer...That's a huge step. It's a huge step for a guy that came in here last year and didn't always understand how to do things the Wildcat way, which is the right way all the time. He did the right things some of the time, but now he's starting to understand how to do things right all the time."

If all that means Robinson will come anywhere close to matching his nine-catch, 146-yard, two-touchdown effort of the spring game in games this season, UK fans might be talking just as much about the sophomore wide receiver very soon.

Surprisingly, Phillips had time in his post-practice comments to talk about more than just Robinson. Watch the video below to see what he had to say about an injury-free fall camp, UK's tight ends and a couple dynamic freshman wide receivers.
