A UK spokesman has confirmed that freshman RB Khalid Thomas and sophomore LB Pancho Thomas have been dismissed from the football team for an unspecified violation of team rules.
Khalid Thomas was a huge pickup for the Cats last summer. The three-star athlete committed to UK over Miami, South Carolina, Ohio State, Texas Tech, Notre Dame and others, and was ranked one of the top 25 athletes in the nation. He’s the younger brother of Pancho Thomas, who played in ten games as a reserve linebacker on special teams last season. Pancho was set to go into the fall as the backup middle linebacker to senior Avery Williamson.
Stoops doesn’t mess around.
