Yusuf Corker, the veteran defensive back at Kentucky, has announced plans for the 2022 season, and he’s headed to the NFL Draft.

Corker was the second-leading tackler for the Wildcats with 81 tackles with 8 pass breakups. He made 8 tackles in the Citrus Bowl win over Iowa, after he entered the season having played in 37 career games with 24 consecutive starting assignments. It was Corker’s blitz that forced an interception by UK linebacker DeAndre Square against Iowa to help seal the win.

“The time has come to follow my dreams and I am excited to announce that I will be declaring for the 2022 NFL Draft. Thank you again for all the support. Go Big Blue!,” he wrote.
