Kentucky DB Says Mississippi St QB Dak Prescott Is Just Like Tim Tebow, 'Maybe A Little Better'

Blake McClain grew up in Florida. The Kentucky sophomore cornerback attended Winter Park High School, located about 120 miles from the Gators' Gainesville campus. As a young football player in the Sunshine State, McClain, like many others, was a fan of Tim Tebow. 

This Saturday, McClain and his Wildcats' defense will face a player who has been drawing comparisons to Florida's former Heisman winner in Mississippi State quarterback Dak Prescott. 

How does Prescott compare to Tebow in McClain's mind?

Tebow, who won the Heisman as a sophomore and helped Florida win two national championships, is one of the greatest college football players of all-time. Prescott has certainly shined this year, though, throwing for 1,478 yards and 14 touchdowns while rushing for 576 yards and eight touchdowns through six games.

Kentucky and No. 1 Mississippi State are set to kick off at 3:30 p.m. E.T. Saturday. The game will be televised on CBS.
