Patrick Graffree transferring to EKU

UK Football Media Day

UK defensive tackle Patrick Graffree is now EKU defensive tackle Patrick Graffree. The redshirt freshman announced today that he is transferring to Eastern Kentucky to play this fall.

Graffree was VERY excited to be a Wildcat when he signed in 2012, but Stoops is bringing in a new level of talent on the D-line so playing time wasn’t look good for the former Central Hardin Bruin.

Best of luck to the young man in Richmond.

    Wish best of luck to the Kentucky native. He played a lot in the Blue/White game, but that is the one position that we are pretty solid so, I understand the need to transfer. Does anyone know if he will be able to play this season? EKU plays UofL in week 2 and I’d like to see him hit some dirty birds.

    Hoping you do well at EKU. Good school with a strong tradition.

    Good luck Patrick. The positive aspect of this is that it allows Stoops to replace another Joker recruit with a more talented player.

    Yes he will play this year! And he will be the best “in shape player” that Eastern has no doubt!!!

    If he is eligible to play immediately, why aren’t the Davis twins? They both redshirted last year, and transferred this year. So if he can play, why can’t they? Is it because EKU is a DII school?

    Sorry to see you go but leave the Ipad at the door on the way out!

    Yes #6, because EKU is not Division 1.

    Shows how non up to date the media is on the events of UK football. No clue. Stay tuned for more events.
    Interesting, he’s transfering but no mention of why. Why, because the media does not know.

    Patrick deleted his twitter as well, which I found a bit strange. I hope he doesn’t feel like backlash is coming his way or is embarrassed about making the decision to transfer to EKU. I think I speak for most of BBN in saying we wish him nothing but great things in Richmond. Pat had high expectations for himself and was always proud to wear the blue and white. I felt like he would’ve pushed for playing time next season after two years of transforming his body in Korem’s High Performance Program.

    EKU will be a much better fit for him. Im not putting him down but I played against him in high school and he was overrated. I was shocked when I heard Joker offered him. But thats what Joker liked to do, find kids who look like football players that didnt quite have the best skill set and then try and turn them into Division 1/SEC caliber atheletes

    Being only a RS Freshman, I wish he would have stayed. You can’t have too many big DTs. I think he could have been a contributor in another year or two, which is what you want with your DTs. Bring them in, RS and develop them for a couple of years. I guess the opportunity for immediate playing time persuaded him to transfer. Good luck to him at EKU.

    EKU is a D1-AA school which is now called FCS . He can transfer and play this Fall because he is playing down and he hasn’t enroll for the fall semester at Kentucky .
