New, 1 comment

Every year you can bet UTEP will have a class of at least 10 lineman on both sides of the ball, can UTEP grab their second defensive lineman commitment for 2015 this weekend?

JUCO defensive tackle Kendall Carr is set to be in attendance for the Middle Tennessee game today on an official visit.

The 6'0 285 lbs defensive tackle is a red-shirt sophomore, and will have two years of eligibility with the Miners if he commits.

Carr piled up 52 tackles, 12.5 tackles for loss, and also had three sacks this season for Northwest Mississippi Community College.

The Batesville, Mississippi native won a state title in his junior year of high school ball, and amassed five sacks his senior year and was also selected to the prestigious Mississippi/Alabama All-Star game.

He suffered an injury in the second game of his 2013 sophomore year at NWMCC, he took a medical red-shirt and was also receiving interest from Auburn, Texas A&M, Middle Tennessee, and Memphis.

While he doesn't have elite height, he looks to be a high motor guy, and is very smart in using his athletic ability, and strength to get around blockers.  He could be a nice fit in the rotation next season, his motor and leverage skills standout, and will definitely be a solid asset he can bring in stopping the run

UTEP has other visits scheduled for December and January, and had highly touted DE/TE Hunter Thedford pop a commitment on his official visit at the beginning of November.

Kugler has a knack for getting kids to commits on visits, will lighting strike again in 2015?

We will keep you updated.
