Name: Josh Krok
Position: Offensive Tackle
Height/Weight: 6-8, 320 lbs.
Hometown: Niles, Ohio
The Kentucky Wildcats have received the letter of intent from Niles (Ohio) McKinley offensive tackle Josh Krok.
The 6-8, 300 lb mammoth of a lineman was previously committed to West Virginia, but following his visit to Lexington, he eventually commit to UK. Krok said he had “the best time of my life” during that official visit to UK.
He is considered a three-star player by Rivals.com, ESPN and 247 Sports. With commitments from only two lineman in Jarrett LaRubbio and Nick Richardson, UK desperately needed to add at least one more lineman by singing day, and Krok was a huge late-pickup for the Cats.
Krok is big, strong, physical battler with the size, strength and athleticism for the offensive tackle position at the BCS level of play. His long frame appears very capable of supporting additional body mass over time provided agility and balance are not compromised.
Shows the strong hands needed to control and maneuver defenders once contact is made. Playing out of a three-point stance we see the flexibility, balance and agility needed to play on his feet and adjust to quickness and change of direction movement in tight spaces.
