McMullin Interested in Visiting Kentucky

Kentucky is set to lose defensive tackle Myron Pryor after this season and after next season the Wildcats will lose junior Corey Peters. Losing those two players in a two year span would be tough on any program. However, the Wildcats are already working on reloading the roster. Mister Cobble and Myron Walker are already UK bound, but Kentucky is still recruiting another prospect.

Kentucky is set to lose defensive tackle Myron Pryor after this season and after next season the Wildcats will lose junior Corey Peters. Losing those two players in a two year span would be tough on any program. However, the Wildcats are already working on reloading the roster. Mister Cobble and Myron Walker are already UK bound, but Kentucky is still recruiting another prospect.

Kentucky has its eye on Vanderbilt commitment Darrius McMullin. McMullin recently indicated that he was thinking of taking more visits, despite his commitment to the Commodores. McMullin told Scout.com writer Andrew Bone that, "I plan on possibly visiting Kentucky and Ole Miss. Those schools have been staying in contact with me."

Still, Spain Park High (Al.) coach David Shores thinks McMullin is solid to Vanderbilt. "I haven't discussed it with him. It's supposed to be a solid commitment," said Shores.

The 6-foot-2 270 senior had a solid season after battling injury. He accumulated 50 total tackles including eight tackles for a loss, with three sacks, one forced fumble and one interception.

Coach Shores describe McMullin's on the field abilities.

"He's tremendously strong in the upper body. He's a good run stopping tackle. It generally takes two guys to block him. He's a pretty heady guy, a smart player. Whatever he does, you don't hear about it. He just goes about his business. He's just a hardworking guy," said Shores.

"One thing he needs to improve is his pass rushing ability. It has gotten better. His defensive line coach has done a tremendous job working with him. He has to work on getting off the ball and getting into the backfield and making plays on the quarterback when he gets to the next level," said Shores. "He's just got to get better with the pass rush," he finished.

Darrius McMullin is a three-star defensive tackle and the number 50 tackle in the nation according to Scout.com.
