Rigg is expected to fully recover and take over the role of backup tight end from Greg Hart, an Alter grad who played three seasons at UK after transferring from Nebraska. Mostly a blocker, Hart had three catches for 25 yards and one touchdown as a senior.
Other area players at UK are:
• Tobias Gilliam (Wayne), a redshirt sophomore DB.
• Kordell Looney (Springfield), a redshirt sophomore DT.
• Matt Ruffolo (Alter), a sophomore kicker.
• Also, Roland Walder (Trotwood-Madison) transferred from UK to Bowling Green prior to last season. He didn’t see action for the Wildcats as a freshman.
An inside linebacker, Walder sat out last season and should be in the mix for playing time with the Falcons this fall. He’ll have three seasons of eligibility.
