 Draft Scout College Football Player News


  The Kentucky football team did not quite make it to the end of the season without a player opting out. Third-year sophomore cornerback Kelvin Joseph tweeted Monday evening he is opting out of the rest of UK's season to prepare for the NFL draft. "Growing up in North Baton Rouge, not many have had the opportunity that I have to play in the NFL," Joseph tweeted. "My family struggled but still managed to raise a successful young Black man. I am taking this opportunity to focus on preparing for the NFL draft." A former top-50 recruit, Joseph transferred to Kentucky from LSU prior to the 2019 season. He sat out last season per NCAA transfer rules then made his debut as Kentucky's starting cornerback this fall.

Joseph leads Kentucky's team with four interceptions but has also drawn significant criticism for several careless penalties, including a personal foul for Saturday's game at Florida when he shoved a Florida player after the play was finished. Earlier Monday, UK coach Mark Stoops said Joseph was still working to understand the culture of Kentucky's program. "Kelvin is a competitor," Stoops said. "He understands once you talk to him and get him on the side and talk to him. He's very competitive in games but some of it is absolutely unacceptable. You know, like the one play on Saturday, there's just no excuses. You can't have it, it's totally unacceptable, and it will be addressed." - Courier Journal
