Kentucky missed out on four-star cornerback Devontre Parnell this morning and, even worse, he committed to Louisville. Cause for concern? Maybe not. There are now reports online suggesting that Parnell has a torn ACL and was not as open about the injury with Kentucky’s coaches as they would have liked, so they backed away from him. Steve Jones of Cats Illustrated seems to confirm that story.
When asked to confirm reports and comment on the speculation, Louisville AD Tom Jurich referenced Rick Pitino and Marvin Stone in suggesting that his school is like the dog waiting for scraps to fall off the Big Blue table. You can make of that what you like.
