Four-Star Defensive Lineman Tre’Vonn Rybka Picks Kentucky over Tennessee

@trevonnrybka

@trevonnrybka

The low-down, dirty Volunteers will watch one of their best players move across the northern border to play for the Kentucky Wildcats.

Tre’vonn Rybka is the 16th player in the Cats’ 2020 recruiting class and one of the most talented. A four-star prospect, Rivals ranks the Dickson, Tn. native as the No. 18 strong-side defensive end in America.

Recruited by defensive line coach Derrick LeBlanc, Rybka’s announcement is just a day after Michigan’s Deondre Buford joined the Big Blue Nation. The two additions have put UK back into the top 25 of the national recruiting team rankings.

Rybka packs plenty of power behind his 6-4, 280-pound frame, yet he’s also versatile enough to play in a few different alignments in UK’s 3-4 defense. See some of his best work from 2018:

      One thing that I think will keep this current group intact is the fact there are some really good players they will be playing next to. In particular D-Line.

    Even though next year will have a tougher schedule. We will have our entire offense minus a few pieces and entire defense minus a fee pieces.

      That’s funny mashbum, same thing Cal has been doing since he got here, yet you hate him. Maybe you just schizophrenic, yeah that’s what it is.
