How impressive was DeAndre Square’s performance vs. Toledo? The sophomore was one of two linebackers named to Pro Football Focus’ Eckrich Team of the Week, which honors the top performers nationally in Week One.
“Flying around like a missile for the Wildcats, Square recorded multiple QB pressures, eight defensive stops and didn’t allow the single target thrown his way to be caught on 29 snaps in coverage,” PFF’s Cam Mellor wrote.
Square had a game-high 11 tackles, 1.5 for loss, a half sack, and an interception that helped Kentucky seal the win in the fourth quarter:
