Rich Brooks' staff received their first verbal of what is considered a monster recruiting weekend for the Wildcats. Christian County's star defender McDuffen is a Wildcat.

The Wildcats received their ninth commitment of the 2009 class after their victory of the Louisville Cardinals. Malcolm McDuffen, who plays defensive end for Christian County, has given his pledge to the Wildcats.

The 6-foot-3, 205-pounder is expected to play outside linebacker for Kentucky.

"He works hard," said Steve Lovelace, Christian County Head Coach to KSR last month. "He plays three sports: football, basketball and track. He doesn't get to spend a lot of time in the weight room," Lovelace continued. "He's going to be really good once he gets more time to focus on one sport."

"He's very quick off the ball. Coach Brooks sees him as a defensive end or outside linebacker," said Lovelace. "If they play him at linebacker, he'll need to work on his feet as far as dropping back into coverage," said Lovelace. "The upside is concentrating on one sport. We're already working on his hips and his feet. If they keep him down (on the defensive line) he'll be fine."

McDuffen made 102 tackles, 16 for a loss and eight sacks last year as he lead Christian County to the state championship game.
