Kenderick Duncan, an All-Sun Belt defensive back from Georgia Southern, has decided to finish his college football career at the University of Louisville.

Duncan made the announcement on his social media pages Monday morning.

Duncan was a star for Georgia Southern as a redshirt sophomore in 2019. He started all 13 games for the Eagles, and finished the season with 79 total tackles, 3.5 tackles for loss, eight pass breakups, two interceptions and a forced fumble.

Honored as a First Team preseason All-Sun Belt selection before the start of the 2020 season, Duncan missed the first four games of the year while recovering from offseason hip surgery. He returned to the field in October, but never got back to full strength and wound up sitting out the final three games of the season as well.

At Louisville, Duncan — who stands 6’3, 225-pound — is expected to compete for a starting spot immediately at safety of the “Card” outsider linebacker spot previously occupied by Rodjay Burns.

We took a non-Power 5 DB transfer last season and it worked out pretty damn well. Here’s hoping Duncan has the same impact in 2021 that Kei’Trel Clark had in 2020.
