The Southeastern Conference media days are taking place at the College Football Hall of Fame and The Omni Atlanta Hotel at CNN Center in Atlanta, Georgia.

The 2022 media days are taking place July 18-21 and SEC Network is televising the annual event.

Kentucky head coach Mark Stoops took part in media days Wednesday.

Stoops discussed Dee Beckwith transferring from Tennessee to Kentucky.

“With Dee, he is a large athlete,” Stoops said. “He’s a big boy. He’s a guy that can confuse you at times because he can play so many different positions. That’s the nice thing. That’s what Rich (Scangarello) really liked about him and we liked about him as a staff, was we could be very multiple with him.

“If you watched the 49ers in the past, some of the creativity, different things we could use with a big guy like that, could play wideout, H-back, different things, so we’ll move him around.”

The 6-foot-5, 230-pound Beckwith appeared in five games for the Vols from 2020-21, totaling 27 rushing yards on four attempts.

In 2021, Beckwith recorded two rushing yards on one attempt against South Alabama Nov. 20.

He entered the NCAA transfer portal in January.
