Kentucky linebacker boldly challenges Florida TE Kyle Pitts
Florida tight end Kyle Pitts has been a matchup nightmare all season, already with eight receiving touchdowns as the No. 6 Gators make a push for a College Football Playoff appearance.
One Kentucky defender doesn’t seem too worried about what Pitts has done to this point, however.
“Kyle Pitts is most definitely going to see me this week,” linebacker J.J. Weaver told reporters, per Jon Hale of the Louisville Courier Journal. “We’ve just got to be more physical than him.
“He is a great player. He’s going to get up and jump, but he’s just never had J.J. Weaver on him before.”
Kentucky fans have to love the confidence, but at the same time, it can be a dangerous thing to give a playmaker like Pitts any bulletin board material.
We’ll see the matchup for ourselves on Saturday when Kentucky faces Florida in Gainesville.
