Big things expected from JUCO linebacker Ryan Flannigan

After reeling in the best recruiting class in UK football history, it’s not surprising that many of those newcomers will be relied on for immediate impact.
Most of the time though, players at the skill positions (receiver, running back, etc.) are the ones counted on to adapt quickly. Linebackers are a little out of the norm since there’s a steep learning curve and a huge jump to major college football, but Ryan Flannigan isn’t a normal linebacker.
The JUCO addition has only been on campus a few weeks, but he’s already earning reps with the first team defense.
