50 DAYS TO KICKOFF: Jordan Kupersmith

New, 2 comments

In which BracketCat counts down the 50th day until kickoff with a profile of linebacker Jordan Kupersmith.

Jordan Kupersmith took over Tre Walker's No. 50. I don't think he'll be playing quite as much as Walker, though.

Bio

Position: Defensive End

Previous College: None

Projection: Scout Team

Status: Walk-On

Jordan Christopher Kupersmith (b. July 20, 1992) is a semi-mysterious walk-on who redshirted in 2013, his first recorded year with the Wildcats, but is an academic junior. No prior community college is listed in his profile.

I can only interpret that to mean that he sat out of football for two years as a regular student, given the information at hand. He was a high school senior in 2011, so he should be listed as a redshirt sophomore on the official roster.

Kupersmith prepped at St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Olathe under head coach Mike Thomas, earning second-team all-league honors as a senior in 2011. He projects as a scout team player.
