Thursday June 6th, 2013

The relatively young Mark Stoops era has gotten off to a positive start at Kentucky, but it seems a handful of players won't be around to enjoy it. Kyle Tucker of the Louisville Courier-Journal reports that five Wildcat players are leaving the program.

Kentucky has yet to confirm the players' departures.

All five players were recruited by previous head coach Joker Phillips. Of the group, Sweat made the biggest impact in 2012, playing in 10 games as a freshman wide receiver while catching four passes for 84 yards and two touchdowns.
