Kentucky coach Rich Brooks has plenty of senior leadership on his team, but that doesn't mean some newcomers won't make an impact. Brooks mentioned a few players who could make an impact during his weekly press conference earlier this week at Wildcat Den.
"Shane McCord is clearly in the rotation (at defensive tackle). He will play this year, and as the season goes on he could be a significant contributor on the defensive interior. Other freshmen: (Jacob) Dufrene could see some action at linebacker. He did have an injured shoulder which hurt his snapping a little bit, but he could still be in the mix there. (Greg) Wilson at safety could see some action. (Brad) Durham at tackle. (Phillip) Hibbard is possible. (Kyrus) Lanxter at receiver and Moncell Allen and Derrick Locke (at running back)."
