Arizona football lands transfer linebacker from Vanderbilt

Arizona added transfer Vanderbilt linebacker Kenny Hebert on Wednesday giving defensive coordinator Don Brown, aka “Doctor Blitz,” much needed depth at the linebacker position as he tries to revamp the defense.

During Hebert’s four years at Vanderbilt he was in and out of the rotation and accumulated 53 total tackles, 32 solo tackles, 21 assists, and six sacks showing progression since his 2017 freshman season.

Here’s Hebert’s national signing day video with highlights from his high school days:

With the addition of Hebert, Arizona now has landed four linebackers from the transfer portal for the 2021 class. Here’s a list of the linebackers that will join Brown’s system:
