#55 Keith Kelsey
Hometown: Gainesville, Fla
Thoughts: Keith was a pleasant surprise to me last year. I thought he might see some game action occasionally, but the guy was a mainstay on a very good defense (best in the country according to some) on a team that went 12-1. Keith played in twelve games last season and finished with 24 tackles, as a true freshman. Kelsey had some hype coming into the program and although he hailed from Gainesville and had a father who wore the blue and orange the Gators never made him an offer. God I love Muschamp! After Spring practice and the Red-White game, Kelsey appears primed to follow up last year with another stellar outing in the new defensive scheme Grantham has installed.
I touched on this briefly when discussing Lozo, but linebackers are going to be very important this year. Outside of the skill positions on offense, I probably pay more attention to linebacker play than anything else. Take a look at the last few seasons here at Louisville and look at the studs we’ve had at linebacker. It’s no coincidence that having solid players at that position translates into excellent defensive play. The linebacker is an extension of the defensive coordinator. He not only has to know his role, but also help to position the players around him based upon what the offense is showing. Now that Grantham has implemented the 3-4 philosophy the position becomes that much more important if for no other reason than we simply need more healthy bodies. This summer will be important to the development of players at that position. I like the move for Lozo, and with Keith Brown and Burgess still hanging around back there we’ve got heck of a good start.
I swear college football players do not know how to grocery shop smh— Young hitta55 (@D1prospect6) May 12, 2014
It’s not just football players Keith, its all college students. My first trip to the grocery as a college student included Totino’s Pizza, Hamburger Helper, Milk, Bread, lunchmeat, PB & J, Ice cream, Pop-Tarts and a 12 pack of
Coor’s Light Cokes (Hi mom!) It’s understandable that college kids would buy nothing but garbage when they go to the grocery store. It’s cheap, it tastes good, and nobody is pounding celery stalks after an all-nighter. Oh yeah, I forgot Kool-Aid on my list above, I always had some red Kool-Aid on ha…
Dude, you’ve got to stop doing that.
