Aussie Aussie Aussie, Oi Oi Oi! Kentucky just landed a commitment from another Australian punter, Max Duffy.
The 24-year-old former professional Australian rules football player is considered the number one punter in the 2018 class by ProKicker.com. Number two? Chance Poore, who has pledged to kick for Kentucky next season:
Duffy will follow in the footsteps of fellow Aussie Matt Panton, who came to Kentucky as a graduate transfer from Columbia earlier this year. Duffy most recently played for the Fremantle Football Club in Australia, but has been training to become an NFL kicker with the help of Prokick Australia, who announced the news:
