Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb will be inducted into the University of Kentucky's Athletics Hall of Fame this year, the school announced Monday.

The Packers selected Cobb in the second round (64th overall) in the 2011 NFL Draft. Last season, he notched 610 yards on 60 receptions and four touchdowns, including the now-famous "Hail Rodgers" play in a playoff game against the Giants last year. Through six seasons, Cobb has compiled 4,488 yards on 366 receptions and 35 TD's.

At Kentucky, Cobb played in 36 games, catching 144 passes for 1,661 yards and 13 touchdowns. He also rushed for 1,313 yards with 22 touchdowns on 228 carries. He still holds the UK career record for touchdowns (37) and ranks fourth in career scoring, tallying 226 points as a Wildcat.
