DK Jr. is a fast-rising safety from Gadsden, and already held SEC offers from Mizzou, Bama, and the Barn.
He has a lithe frame, like his father, at 6’0” 190, and is also a big hitter for his size. But his real skill lies in playing the ball in the air.
For now, Kirkpatrick, Jr. is just a three-star, but expect those bumps to start rolling in. He has borderline blue chip talent, but certainly could use some polish and a time to finish fully developing.
Welcome (home), Dre.
