The Kentucky football team will open the academic school year with an unexpected addition.

UK announced outside linebacker Ashtan Pierre has arrived on campus and will enroll in classes this fall.  Pierre will practice with the team, but will not play as a redshirt.

A three-star recruit from Pompano Beach, Florida, Pierre initially chose Kentucky over Oklahoma and others.  Mark Stoops announced at SEC Media Days that he did not expect Pierre on campus this fall due to an academic situation, but those plans have apparently changed.

    Good news, especially since the report out of camp is that we’re thin at linebackers. No need to redshirt until last 4 games. Hope he can catch up
