Lovell Peterson decommits from Kentucky

Just fifteen days ago OL/DL recruit Lovell Peterson tweeted that he was enamored with what Kentucky had to offer. Apparently, two weeks later, things have changed. KSR has learned that Peterson will decommit from Kentucky and commit to Grand Valley State University where he will play football and run track.

Peterson played both ways at Wayne High School (OH) but was expected to play exclusively at defensive tackle for Kentucky.

Oh well. Happy trails.

    Keep in touch with this kid, because he’s going to regret that decision eventually, it’s only a matter of time.

    What an amazingly stupid decision. Make the chick come to UK instead of ruining your future.

    Grades I bet. Hope this isn’t running rampant through our “awesome” recruiting class. That is, getting great players that can’t academically qualify elsewhere, or here.

    I really like Peterson. Think he could be a really good DT in Stoops’ scheme. It hurts, but it won’t hurt as much if we can land Maurice Swain, who is just as talented.

    Please research before writing an article. He did not qualify academically.

    Hopefully the days of fighting Grand Valley St. for recruits are over! Stoops is going to recruit with the best of them! This class is going to be one of the best in Kentucky history in Stoops first year. IN STOOPS WE TRUST! GO CATS!!

    He did not qualify academically… and he also was going to be used as an o-lineman… there actually are better names on the board that stoops is in with…. no big deal

    If he is gone, it sounds like grades. Hate it. He was one I was pretty excited over! Need position and from Ohio. Hope he re-thinks this if it really is over a girl.

    #8… You don’t need to be fast to do shot put, discus, or hammer throw. I think he will be more involved in the field part of the track & filed.

    Yeah when they can’t pass our classes we usually ship them Louisville this is a new development. UofL Home of the ABC count to 3 entrance exam.

    Oh I remember when this website announced his commitment. It said he was part of the Ohio pipeline. Is that the same Ohio pipeline that thinks Kentucky is full of a bunch of hillbillies that can barely win games over Division 2 opponents? Because that’s the Ohio pipeline I know. What does that say when this guy would rather go to an NAIA school than Kentucky? I’ll say it again, people in Ohio make fun of Kentucky on a regular basis, they even nickname their crappy cities by putting “-tucky” on the ends of their names. Good luck getting those Ohio recruits, other than those that have no other choice.

    We reported our cheating ways so people would believe us when we said we stopped it. Luckily for us Hurtt and the guys he brought into Lhole are going to get all of the attention from the NCAA in this part of the country for awhile.

    Yearns is on the fence acedemically too…. Hope to good ess he qualifies. Heard his issue is more just finishing class work , is that true? McWilson is huge! If we can get Timmons and Hatcher on board!

    25. Do you forget that Kentucky is one of 5 schools to ever get the NCAA death penalty for cheating. Remember that hillbilly, when you want to talk about cheating.

    I’m almost certain that it is a grades issue. Probably more work than was possible for him to accomplish and took the best way out. Take an offer from a school with less strict policies.

    @27. The only difference from ANY major college in football and basketball is 100% all on if the NCAA wants to nail you. I doubt if there are any exceptions. There would be very few at the most. The NCAA turns a blind eye so many times its not even funny. They could have nailed everyone by now if they wanted to. The “clean” ones are probably the most corrupt. Like Wooden? NCAA is a joke.

    If it was us it would have been a slap on the wrist. And @27 I wish we could be on par with hillbillies. A hillbilly will kick your @ss and laugh about it. All we do is stick our winkies in one and then have a winky stuck in ours. Thank god Ohio’s liberal. If we were in Kentucky what we do would be against the law.

    Does anyone here really think Stoops won’t replace this kid with an equal talent? Heck, Stoops might already have and invited Lovell to write his own decommit story.

    Don’t think McWilson committed. He tweated “Pellini or Stoops” “SEC or Big12” and “No commit yet” on his twitter within the last 90 minutes.

    Still looking good, though.

    @24 all cities in must end in “tucky” since they are all crappy, not one worth shitting on which is why birds there fly upside down.

    UofL fans posting here is the greatest thing I’ve seen in a while… the fear, hatred, and utter jealousy we have instilled in these complete losers is amazing and beautiful, and I love it. Sad to hear of LP’s decision, I was really looking forward to him becoming a CAT. I wish the guy the best of luck and if he did choose to go to a school because of track, a girl, or both, good for him… life is bigger than one decision. By the way UofL dropped another, so have another, and EF lil brother.

    One thing is sure. It may not be jealousy, yet, but I can smell the worry. That’s just a step above fear. That’ll come next year. There’s a lot of people noticing what’s going on in Lexington right now.

    48. Or it could be Joker took us to 2-10. Even we can’t get behind that, and we have fairly realistic football standards. A 40-0 blowout at home to Vandy will kill anyone’s career.

    The 4 most hated people by Kentuckians

    1. Barack Obama
    2. Tubby Smith
    3. Joker Phillips
    4. Louis Coleman *Yes, I’m aware that he’s dead.



  56. Actually.

    1 Rick Pitino
    2 Charlie Strong…Florida Agrees
    3 Clint Hurtt unless he tanks Louisville then he’ll be most loved…..Florida Agrees
    4 Christian Laettner

    Don’t hate Tubby wish him the best. People have no clue how many times Kentuckians get excited over how he’s doing else where. Problem being he does the same thing there. Gets something going then lets it slip.

    Didn’t hate Joker till he started lying on the recruiting trail and started going after guys he didn’t even give a chance till Stoops did.



  57. Actually.

    5. Claude Bassett

    8. Any Democrat that runs for President…..but that’s the bible belt.

    Don’t know the lies. Going by what parents of these kids have said. It has been several kids. Some in state. But also a big name that actually sent him tape while at UK. Joker wouldn’t even talk to him. Resent the tape to Stoops and he called him as soon as he watched it. Stoops offered. A while later UF does. Heard of a kid named Woulard. Yeah him. Apparently he isn’t the only one.

    It’s pretty insulting the way some of you people are talking about GVSU. First of all, rumor has it he has a girlfriend who goes to GVSU. Secondly, if he wants to do T&F, I would be going to GVSU as well. They have one of the top track programs in the entire country across all NCAA Divisions (Yes, they are Division II, not NAIA) and have had multiple athletes competing in the US Olympic trials, particularly for throws. If he feels he has a legitimate shot at competing for the Olympics, then GVSU is a very good choice of where to go.
