Former wide receiver the main man now at linebacker for UK
LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – The football Cats have had plenty of shuffling at positions over the years.
Think about Bud Dupree. He came in on offense, and now he’s an NFL rookie linebacker.
Josh Forrest is another guy who came to Lexington originally wanting to play offense.
The Paducah Tilghman product was a wide receiver. He went to the other side of the ball in 2012.
Last year, Forrest merged as the main middle linebacker.
How tough was that growth on defense last season for Forrest in defensive coordinator D.J. Eliot’s eyes?
Hear from coach Eliot in the video.
