LEXINGTON -- Kentucky defensive tackle Myron Pryor knows this could be a big year for him.
He's being counted on to help anchor the defensive line on what coach Rich Brooks believes will be an improved defense as UK tries to put together its third straight winning season. However, Pryor's play will also help determine his possible National Football League future.
"Yes, it could be a big year for me. I already know what my future is. There is always a lot of talk about me going to the next level," Pryor said. "I am very happy that I have the capability to go to the next level and have the athleticism to do that.
"Right now, though, I have to focus on my school and what I am doing here. I don't need to be thinking about something later down the road that is going to affect me during my school year. I don't want my mind to be somewhere else and not here because then I won't have the best year I can have."
