There's always the need for size and athleticism on the football field. One of Kentucky's most recent commitments has those assets in excess. KSR talks to Teven Eatmon's coach about his star.

There's always the need for size and athleticism on the football field. One of Kentucky's most recent commitments has those assets in excess. KSR talks to Teven Eatmon's coach about his star.

Standing 6-foot-7, 290-pounds Teven Eatmon plays on both sides of the ball for Wynford high school. He plays defensive tackle and tight end. But where will he fit in at the next level? "Kentucky sees him as a tight end," said Travis Moyer, Wynford's head coach.

Like his teammate, Tyler Brause, Eatmon is capable of being a contributor in several positions. "Teven's strength is his size and athleticism. He can play tight end, tackle or defensive lineman," said Moyer. "He brings that rare ability along with size and athleticism," finished Moyer.

All those features haven't gone unnoticed from college coaches. He had offers from Indiana, Iowa State and Syracuse. He also received interest from all over the Big Ten.

Eatmon and Brause both visited Kentucky during the first week of August and made commitments not long after. "They felt like it was home there and they could get a great education and compete at the highest level of college football," said Moyer.

Eatmon has work to do, mostly on the nuances of whatever position he winds up at. "Teven's just got to continue to learn the game. He needs to continue to get reps and get comfortable at a position," said Moyer.
