The Wildcats graduate one of the best defensive tackles to ever suit up for the blue and white in Corey Peters. Replacing him will be an array of underclassmen and maybe a freshman. "I think he's pretty solid on Kentucky," said McDaniel. "He's committed to Kentucky," he finished.
So what are the Wildcats getting in the massive McAdoo? "He's a big kid. He's about 6-foot-2, 330-pounds," said McDaniel. "He plays with good pad leverage. He demands double teams defensively. He can make plays laterally down the line," he continued.
McAdoo made several plays as a junior, gathering 96 tackles, 15 tackles for loss and five sacks. This season he has 58 solo tackles, 6.5 sacks.
"He is so big. He's a physical player and he plays aggressive. When he tackles, he's going to put his whole body into it. He punishes blockers and quarterbacks," McDaniel finished.
There are some areas that Tim can improve for the next level, however. "I think he's struggled with his weight. He doesn't carry 330 like you think. He's not a fat kid, but he needs to get down to about 310 at the next level," said McDaniel. "He also needs to work on his pass rush. He's a run stopper right now. He's got to work on his hand and foot speed and getting off the ball," said McDaniel.
Meanwhile, McAdoo helped Oakland High to the Tennessee state quarterfinals before they were knocked off. Oakland finished with a 10-3 record this season. McAdoo was also selected to the Toyota East versus West All-Star Classic for the state of Tennessee. Tim is also a Mr. Football Finalist this season.
