2014 Kentucky Wildcats Football Preview: Meet Farrington Huguenin

#91 FARRINGTON HUGUENIN
JR DE
6’4 275
DREHER/NORTH CAROLINA TECH – COLUMBIA, SC

BEFORE UK

It’s been a long and winding road for Farrington Huguenin as he originally committed to Kentucky in 2010.  He is an extremely versatile athlete with good size and speed.  He started at DE end his sophomore and junior year in high school, but switched to linebacker his senior season.  There, he had 121 tackles with 4 sacks and caused 4 fumbles.  Huguenin is a pretty well rounded athlete as he also wrestled and ran track and hurled the shot put.

Huguenin attended North Carolina Tech Preparatory Christian Academy in 2010 and turned in 17 sacks.

 

AS A WILDCAT

Farrington Huguenin redshirted in 2011, but has been a steady contributor his last two seasons at Kentucky.  He played all 12 games in 2012 and got his first start in the season finale at Tennessee.  He had 11 tackles for the season and his best game was four tackles and a fumble recovery versus Mississippi State.

He also played in all 12 games last year and started one game versus Alabama.  He had 14 tackles and had season highs of three tackles versus Alabama and Miami (OH).

Huguenin has been very dependable as a reserve end and he will continue to see playing time this season.  DE is probably Kentucky’s strongest position, but Mark Stoops singled him out after the Spring game for being consistent and playing well.  He has transformed himself at UK, putting on 40 pounds of muscle and has a good pass rush ability.

Even though he is 6’4, he has very good speed and has been timed at 4.56 and consistently below 4.7.
