Apparently, Kentucky is adding a punter.
Matthew Panton, a graduate transfer, tweeted Wednesday that he’ll pursue his MBA and play football at Kentucky. Last season, Panton played for Columbia of the Ivy League and averaged 40.5 yards per punt on 42 kicks.
In 2015, Panton averaged 35.1 yards per punt on 19 kicks. The 6-foot-4, 230-pound athlete offers international flair. He’s from Shoreham, Australia, and as explained within his Columbia biography, he’s an experienced Australian Rules Football player.
The Wildcats finished 7-6 last season and earned a TaxSlayer Bowl berth.
