Junior College Outside Linebacker Marquez Bembry Commits to Kentucky


A junior college edge rusher from the state of Georgia has committed to Kentucky.  Marquez Bembry, a former Tennessee signee, announced he will join the Kentucky football team.

A three-star prospect from Atlanta in the class of 2017, Bembry was committed to play at Tennessee for more than a year before signing with the Vols.  After failing to academically qualify, Bembry enrolled at Jones County Junior College in Ellisville, Miss.  Bembry is expected to be a member of Kentucky’s 2019 recruiting class.

Check out highlights from his high school playing days.

Since his high school days, Bembry has transformed into a grown ass man.  He’ll play Josh Allen’s role as an outside linebacker for the Cats.

The KSR crew actually watched Bembry’s team play last year.  East Mississippi C.C. (of Last Chance U fame) hosted Jones County during KSR’s road trip to Southern Miss last fall.  Jones County’s logo shares a striking resemblance to another area logo.

    Will be especially nice to have a guy that will have a little extra incentive against those filthy Vols.

    Yes I agree he is a grown ass man. Coming in with 2 years left of playing time at UK he should be able to make some noise.

    I am always in favor of bringing in a few Juco kids, each season. With players dropping out with career ending injuries, those who quit because they can’t break into the line up, and those that leave for whatever reason, there are always holes to fill.
