At least one of the JUCOs UK desperately needs this fall is on his way to Lexington. Defensive tackle Melvin Lewis graduated from Fullerton Community College this past weekend, and hopes to be on campus by the end of the week. The Fullerton Hornets tweeted the good news last night: “Former Hornet Melvin Lewis finished his AA degree and is headed to Kentucky on full scholarship this week.”
Lewis’ last class is Wednesday, and he can’t start practicing with UK until his grades process, which he hopes will happen by this weekend. He’s just a little bit eager to join his teammates:
Lord please let this week go by fast so that I can hurry up and practice #BBN

We’re still waiting to hear about talented JUCO cornerback Nate Willis, who should receive word on if he’s good to go at UK today or tomorrow. Cross your fingers, toes, eyes, legs, arms…anything. The Cats NEED him.
