The Kentucky Wildcats have found a new punter.

According to Prokick Australia, 2018 recruit Max Duffy has committed to UK.

This is actually a big get for the Cats. According to, Duffy is the No. 1 punter prospect in the Class of 2018. Right behind him is fellow UK commit Chance Poore, who’s expected to be a kicker at UK.

UK is no stranger to having great punters, but they’ve only begun recently utilizing Australian-rules punters. That began in 2017 with Matt Panton, who came to UK as a graduate transfer from Columbia.

Duffy was once an Australian Football League star, but he recently made the switch to American football in hopes of becoming an NFL punter someday. It looks like he’ll be continuing that dream at UK.
