UK Football Signee Kenneth Horsey had Open Heart Surgery


A Kentucky football signee survived a scare.  Offensive tackle Kenneth Horsey thanked friends and family for prayers after successful heart surgery.

Horsey’s medical condition is unclear, however, on Sunday he Tweeted it was just, “A minor setback for a major comeback.”

A 6’4″ 325-pound tackle from Seminole, Florida, Horsey was considered a three-star prospect when he committed to Kentucky just a few weeks before the December signing period. ¬†Expected to arrive in Lexington this summer, we could receive an update on Horsey’s condition from UK after tomorrow’s spring practice.
