One name was missing from Kentucky’s roster that was distributed this morning: incoming freshmen Ashtan Pierre. Mark Stoops just told reporters that due to grades, Pierre won’t join the team this year.

The three-star athlete from Deerfield Beach, Florida signed with Kentucky last December and was expected to play linebacker, but now, it seems he’ll have to go the junior college route.

    One day, kids may finally get the mindset that everyone isn’t going pro, and education is important….

    Ooops. Not sure you’re allowed to say that’s the reason why publicly because of FERPA.

    It happens. Guy was most likely going to red shirt anyway. Maybe he can get his grades in order and join team next year.
