South Sumter 2024 LB Ty Kadur

We have mentioned South Sumter’s reputation for producing big-time linebackers in the past. During his sophomore season, Kadur displayed some ability that has the potential to add to that reputation. The 5’11” 185 pounder had 57 tackles, 11 tackles for loss, 4 sacks, and 3 fumble recoveries in the fall. He flies to the football and his speed certainly stands out on film.
