Stampeding The 2014 USF Football Roster - #61 DT Kieran Pettus

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Today we meet another walk-on.

#61 DT Kieran Pettus
Sophomore, 6'3", 239 lbs.

Stats in 2013: Did not play.

Spot on 2013 Depth Chart: Not listed.

How did he come to USF: As a preferred walk-on for the 2012 season, after playing at East Bay High School in Gibsonton. Here's a highlight clip:

Recruiting Ratings: He's in Rivals' database, but he does not have a star rating. He's an excellent student - a 4.6 GPA at one point - so he got some interest from Ivy League schools.

Projected Playing Time In 2014: Seems unlikely. There are a lot of experienced players, and well-regarded prospects, at his position: Elkino Watson, Todd Chandler, James Hamilton, Derrick Calloway, and Deadrin Senat. Plus the defense is switching from 4-3 to a 3-4, which means less work for defensive tackles in general.

Fun Fact: Kieran has eight siblings.
