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.
