Can you believe football season’s only a little over a month away? Popular SEC blog Saturday Down South continues their preseason position rankings this morning by taking a look at the league’s defensive ends. Coming in at number three, behind Jadeveon Clowney and Chris Smith? UK’s very own Alvin “Bud” Dupree. Here’s what Jon Cooper had to say about Dupree, who he says is a player SEC fans will get to know this season:
3. Alvin ‘Bud’ Dupree, Kentucky
Bud Dupree can play linebacker or defensive end, but Mark Stoops moved Dupree back to end. At 6-4, 250 pounds, Dupree is a big-time athletic specimen few know about. He totaled 91 tackles, 12.5 tackles for loss and 6.5 quarterback sacks as a sophomore, and he should turn in a better year under Stoops
Something tells me Za’Darius Smith will be on this list by the end of the season, too.
