Joker and staff received their 9th commitment Monday for the 2012 campaign. Pat Graffree, a 6’4″ 277lb defensive lineman, received an offer after spending the weekend in camp with Kentucky and accepted. Graffree expects to play defensive tackle for the Cats.
Cats Illustrated caught up with Graffree after the commitment: “Yesterday was a pretty intense day. I went up there with the mind-set that I wanted to get an offer because I got my heart broken on Friday by (Western Kentucky) when they put me on their waiting list (after a camp). I went to UK with the mind-set that I was going to do better and get an offer. I started to do well in the drills, and that led to the (one-on-one) competitions, which I excelled at.”
