LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — Arnold Schwarzenegger made the line "I'll be back" famous in his unforgettable role in the Terminator movie series.

It was also a clever way for Will Levis to announce that he'll be back in the blue and white next year.

Levis took to twitter Monday night, posting the famous clip to inform Big Blue Nation that he return as Kentucky's starting quarterback for the Wildcats 2022 season.

Levis was leaning towards a return back on December 11, but wanted to get an evaluation from the NFL.

In his first season at Kentucky, Levis recorded over 2,593 passing yards, 23 touchdowns, and 12 interceptions through the air. Often used as a running quarterback during his time at Penn State, Levis showed off his versatility on the ground, running for 387 yards, and nine touchdowns.

Levis is projected be one of the top returning starting quarterbacks in the SEC next season. In conference in 2021, He finished fifth in total passing yards, sixth in passing touchdowns and second in rushing touchdowns.
