Jordan Jones and Mike Edwards in the Top 3 in SEC in tackles

jones-edwards

How about a positive Kentucky defensive stat for a change? After three games, sophomore linebacker Jordan Jones still leads the SEC in tackles with 35, or 11.7 per game. That’s good enough for sixth in the country, alongside Cincinnati’s Eric Wilson. Jones is also third in the country in solo tackles with 24, ranking behind Kent State’s Nate Holley and Hawai’i’s Trayvon Henderson.

Not far behind Jones is sophomore safety Mike Edwards, who ranks third in the SEC in tackles with 27. Edwards had a career-high twelve tackles vs. New Mexico State to lead the Cats, along with three pass breakups.

There are issues on defense, for sure, but Jones and Edwards aren’t among them.

    As Cawood used to say “when your safeties are among the leaders in tackles, it’s not a good sign for your defense.” We gotta get more out of our DL.

      Very encoraging with JJ, though. Dude is a machine.
