Max Duffy thinks his successor will be a huge addition

Kentucky lost a huge asset with the departure of Max Duffy as he prepares for a professional career, but the Wildcats have went down a well-known path to find his replacement and Duffy believes his successor will be a great fit in Lexington.

Duffy has spent some time working out with Wilson Berry, who also comes out of the ProKick Australia program.

“He’s as good, if not better than me,” Duffy said recently to Kentucky Sports Radio. “He is very good... I hope hew can win the (Ray Guy) award every year and help Kentucky out. I think he’s gonna be great.”

Berry is the younger brother of Jordan Berry, who was recruited to Eastern Kentucky University by former UK assistant and EKU Head Coach Dean Hood. Jordan has punted for the Pittsburgh Steelers the last six seasons.

Wilson comes in with quite a bit of hype, even going as far as 247 Sports labeling him as a breakout true freshman for the Wildcats program.

Kentucky has gotten accustomed to great punter play the last few years. Hopefully Wilson Berry continues to provide a huge special teams boost for the Wildcats.
