  04/03/21 - Terry WilsonrSr/2022, New Mexico, 6-2, 202 (DS#59 QB) + More +

  Wilson, Gonzales and the other UNM quarterbacks said it's all about competing and no one will be handed the starting role. Yet, Wilson, a 6-foot-2, 203-pound dual threat, said he has done his research. He left Kentucky because he wants the opportunity to throw the ball more and showcase his arm talent. Wilson said he trusts UNM offensive coordinator Derek Warehime because he played for his "pops," Nick Warehime, the coach at the time at Del City High School in Oklahoma. "A lot of that is just confidence, just believing in yourself," Wilson, 23, said. In 2018 as a redshirt sophomore, Wilson led Kentucky to its first 10-win season since 1977. That season featured a 27-16 win at Florida for the first time since 1986, and ended with a 27-24 win over Penn State in the Citrus Bowl. He had just come from Garden City Community College in Kansas after he transferred from Oregon, where he redshirted his freshman season in 2016 when Justin Herbert beat him out for the Ducks' starting spot. Wilson suffered a torn patellar tendon in his left knee that required surgery after two games in his junior season in 2019. Last season, he completed 125 of 200 passes (62.5 completion rating) for 1,187 yards and seven touchdowns for the 5-6 Wildcats. - Albuquerque Journal

  Terry Wilson, who started 25 games at Kentucky over three seasons, is transferring to the University of New Mexico, the Lobos announced Tuesday, UNM says he will be immediately eligible with one season to play. UNM's seven quarterbacks have 20 starts total. The Lobos went 2-5 in the virus-shortened 2020 season, the two wins coming at season's end, and were led by fifth-string walk-on QB Isaiah Chavez. Second-year coach Danny Gonzales had moved Trae Hall up to the top of the depth chart during spring practice, which concludes Saturday with a spring game. But Gonzales also has said that he wanted a graduate transfer to come in and upgrade the Lobos at the position. - Albuquerque Journal

  03/14/21 - Tevaka TuiotirJr/2022, New Mexico, 6-1, 194 (DS#79 QB) + More +

  Tevaka Tuioti, who began last season as University of New Mexico's starting quarterback, is ruled out for spring football because he has not yet been cleared from a concussion sustained Nov. 7 against Hawaii, Lobos coach Danny Gonzales said Wednesday. The determination for Tuioti to be cleared will be after the April 3 date that UNM ends spring football, Gonzales said. "He's out here every day and...in meetings every day," Gonzales said of Tuioti. "But he won't be cleared for practice." UNM Athletics denied the Journal's request to interview Tuioti after practice. - Albuquerque Journal

  03/13/21 - Teton SaltesrSr/2021, New Mexico, 6-5, 300 (DS#17 OT) + More +

  UNM offensive lineman Teton Saltes and punter Tyson Dyer are among eight former Lobos who will participate in the UNM Pro Day on Thursday. Saltes' goal is to bench press 225 pounds 25 times. He is raising money while pursuing that, asking for a donation for each repetition "to support Uplifting Athletes and its mission to inspire the Rare Disease Community with hope through the power of sport," Saltes said on a web page at https://charity.pledgeit.org/f/ZIUOczMYQj. Saltes tweeted the information Wednesday morning on Twitter. Saltes, a 6-foot-6, 322-pound right tackle, won the Wuerffel Trophy in January awarded to the Football Bowl Subdivision player who best combines exemplary community service with leadership achievement on and off the field. Team representatives from the Green Bay Packers and Las Vegas Raiders will conduct the pro day. - Albuquerque Journal

  03/06/21 - Nathaniel JonesFr/2024, New Mexico, 5-10, 205 (DS#999 RB) + More +

  There's a young face, rather a talented running back, missing from University of New Mexico spring football thus far. Nate Jones, an explosive runner who was second on the team last season with 210 rushing yards and two touchdowns on 41 carries, is out at this time. UNM coach Danny Gonzales would not comment specifically on the reason for Jones being away from practices. "If you don't take care of yourself on and off the field, it doesn't matter; if you don't meet our expectations, you're not out here," Gonzales said after Wednesday's practice. "So, right now that's where he's at: he's not meeting our expectations." Jones, a 5-foot-11, 205-pound four-star recruit rated by ESPN, had a remarkable debut on Nov. 7 when he ran for 96 yards and a touchdown on 13 carries in a 39-33 loss at Hawaii. He had sat out the week prior because he had been in close contact with a teammate who tested positive for COVID-19 and was near the end of a 14-day quarantine. - Albuquerque Journal

  01/18/21 - Joey NoblerSr/2022, New Mexico, 6-2, 236 (DS#118 OLB) + More +

  Fourteen seniors, nine on defense led by end Joey Noble, are returning on scholarship to play for the University of New Mexico football team, coach Danny Gonzales announced via Twitter on Saturday morning. Those staying with the Lobos are defensive backs Patrick Peek, Shaddrick Lowery, Tony Collier and Corey Hightower; defensive linemen Noble, Ben Gansallo and Adam Gay; linebackers Reco Hannah and Devin Sanders; offensive linemen Kyle Stapley, Austin Cook and Ben Davis; tight end Kyle Jarvis; and wide receiver Emmanuel Logan-Greene. The coronavirus-delayed and shortened 2020 season did not count against a player's eligibility. Last year, before the season, Gonzales told the UNM seniors that none would be guaranteed a scholarship in 2021 due to the Lobos' cap of 85 scholarships. - Albuquerque Journal

  2020 WUERFFEL TROPHY AWARD WINNER: Teton Saltes, New Mexico,...Teton Saltes was named the 2020 winner of the Wuerffel Trophy, becoming the first major award winner in the history of Lobo Football. The honor was announced live on The Home Depot College Football Awards on ESPN. During the show he was also honored for being named to the 2020 Allstate/AFCA Goodworks Team Captain. It was a night of several firsts for the award itself, as Saltes became the Wuerffel Trophy's first recipient from the Mountain West and the award was presented on the prestigious awards show itself. - New Mexico Football

  Kentucky football quarterback Terry Wilson is planning to use his extra season of eligibility but not at UK. Wilson served as Kentucky's starter for two full seasons and part of a third that ended early due to a knee injury. He led the Wildcats to wins at Florida, Tennessee and Louisville as well as bowl victories over Penn State and NC State as the starting quarterback. However, he was the target of frequent criticism as Kentucky's offense failed to develop a consistent passing game during his tenure. The Oklahoma native finishes his UK career with a 17-8 record as starting quarterback. He is the first player in program history with at least 3,000 passing yards and 1,000 rushing yards in his career. - Courier Journal

  Kentucky quarterback Terry Wilson says he will enter the NCAA transfer portal for his final season of eligibility after leading the Wildcats to two bowl wins in three years. Wilson announced his intention to transfer in an Instagram post Monday night in which he thanked his Kentucky coaches and teammates. He helped Kentucky beat No. 24 North Carolina State 23-21 in last weekend's Gator Bowl to cap his comeback from a season-ending left knee injury in the second game of 2019. Two years ago, Wilson guided Kentucky past Penn State in the Citrus Bowl to complete a 10-win season, its first since 1977. - AP College Football

  2020 WUERFFEL TROPHY FINALIST: Teton Saltes, University of New Mexico, senior, offensive line,...Saltes was honored over the summer as a Lobo Hero for his work on the front lines of the COVID-19 crisis, working with his native Oglala Lakota tribe to distribute needed supplies to those on his home reservation, which was hit particularly hard. Saltes also has worked in and is passionate about suicide prevention, about children's reading, and he has served with the Save The Children Action Network as an advocate for children, speaking in Washington in 2019. He was UNM's nominee for the All State AFCA Good Works Team, which hasn't been announced. The depths of Saltes' community service could fill up a web page, and it certainly has filled up his nomination form. - New Mexico Football

He never missed a game during the season despite wearing a walking boot off the field for much of the year. - New Mexico Football
