Texas junior college defensive back Shyquawn Pullium commits to Kentucky

uk footballBy LARRY VAUGHT

Kentucky now has 10 players in its 2014 recruiting class — compared to one at this time a year ago — with the commitment from Blinn College defensive back Shyquawn Pullium Sunday. The junior college standout was recruited by UK running backs coach Chad Scott.

 The 6-1, 190-pound Pullium  was a 2010 commitment to Penn State as a high school senior at Cathedral Prep School in Erie, Penn., when he was rated a three-star player and No. 31 prospect in the state by  Rivals.com.

He played one year  at Kiski School in Saltsburg, Pa., and signed with Penn State again before ending up at Blinn, a junior college. He had 12 tackles and two pass breakups last season.

 

Patrick Loney of http://kentuckybluesportsnews.com recently asked Pullium about his strengths and areas of improvements.
“Strengths are coverage and aggressive weakness is a strength. I’m aggressive and cover well. Areas of improvement is I guess over aggressive,” Pullium told Loney.

    Pullium ran a 4.31 40 at a combine when he was in high school. Combine that with his size and you’ve got the measurables of a SEC corner.

    It’s always good the read the UK has signed some quality athletes. It is going to take time to build up a team with real depth, but it sure sounds like things are now moving in the right direction. I really enjoy the enthusiasm and upbeat spirit that the Stoops’ has brought with him.

    Go Cats Go!

    Gordon Gee has no respect on this board.
    Looks like the OSU board agrees with me considering that he is “Retiring”.
