Quick update on the AJ Stewart situation. I spoke again with a source around UK who wanted me to clear up some erroneous reports. First, a couple of other internet sites have stated that Stewart’s dismissal from Wildcat Lodge was due to an off-the-court incident. This is false. The dismissal was for his performance and work ethic in pre-season workouts. He is not in disciplinary trouble with the team at this time. Second, he is able to return to the Lodge if performance improves. As of Friday, he was staying in housing away from the Lodge, but many of his belongings are still with the team there. Finally, AJ is still a member of the team and is working out with the group, with the individual telling me that since this incident, “AJ has had the best workouts of his time in Lexington.”
So there you go….a difficult stretch for AJ, but not the ends as some have suggested.
