The Kentucky Wildcats roster is set heading into the spring semester, as the Cats will now look to get the depth chart in order heading into spring practice.
One spot they’ll need to figure out is at right tackle with Jeremy Flax officially off to the pros.
Flax took to Twitter on Wednesday to announce he will be entering the 2024 NFL Draft.
A 6-foot-6 and 325-pound tackle from Detroit (MI), Flax spent four seasons in Lexington after a stint at Independence Community College. Coming from the JUCO ranks, Flax was considered a top-10 JUCO recruit in the class of 2020.
During his career with the Cats, Flax appeared in 36 games, starting in 22. In 2023, Flax was the starting right tackle, after a stint as the swing tackle for the Cats in the 2022 season.
With his departure, the early odds-on favorite to take over the right tackle job in spring practice will be Courtland Ford. The former USC transfer impressed in several appearances, but don't be shocked if this staff looks to the transfer portal, especially if some experienced tackles become available in the second window, a la Gerald Mincey.
Best of luck to Jeremy in this next step in his career!
