Guess which one is Za’Darius
This season may be rough for Kentucky football, but one of the bright spots on the defense is bound to be Za’Darius “Manbeast” Smith. Smith looks every bit the SEC specimen, turning heads at the spring game for his size and skill. ESPN agrees, naming Smith one of their five JUCOs to watch in the SEC:
Za’Darius Smith, DE, Kentucky: New coach Mark Stoops has a very good foundation to work with along his defensive line, and adding Smith to the rotation makes that unit even stronger. He was a monster in the weight room before spring practice and was just as good once he got out on the field. He should help enhance what looks to already be a pretty solid pass rush for the Wildcats this fall.
And that’s just a preview of what’s to come in 2014.
