With Class of 2016 linebacker Jamar Watson committing to Kentucky on Monday, the Cats now have three linebackers slated to sign with Mark Stoops and Company next February.
Thought it might be a good time to look at the how the linebackers will break down over the next five years in a scholarship. Since Kentucky now runs a multiple defense, which includes a lot of 3-4 alignment, I’ve included the defensive ends in the chart.
Noticeable is the fact the Cats will have just two juniors in this category for 2015. Those are Jason Hatcher and junior college transfer Alvonte Bell. For now, I’m listing Courtney Love as a sophomore transfer who will have to sit out this season.
