3. Ken Talley, DL

Along with being the team’s best social media recruiter, Ken Talley also has all the makings of a breakout defensive end this season.

While his journey has been far from straight and narrow, coming over during the 2022 season from Penn State, he was given a four-star rating out of high school for a reason. He’s got a great motor and is explosive off the line that the new coaching staff should be able get out of him.

Redshirt seniors Khris Bogle and Middle Tennessee State transfer Quindarius Dunnigan will be the primary starters but there’s no such thing as too many pass rushers, especially in today’s football. Talley will be able to give the starters rest while still providing energy, depth, and production on at the defensive end spot on defense.
