Former Kentucky OL EJ Price is joining the Canadian Football League

After countless headlines, outbursts, departures, returns, and official statements made by the University of Kentucky, former UK offensive lineman EJ Price has found a new home.

The school announced on Monday that Price, who was preparing for his junior season at UK, would be leaving the school to “pursue other opportunities.”

Today, we found out that the opportunity he was seeking was a job in professional football for the Saskatchewan Roughriders of the Canadian Football League.

Price announced the news on Twitter:

Price played in 13 games for the Wildcats with 11 starts, his first coming in Kentucky’s historic victory over Florida.

The 6-foot-6, 305-pound lineman started his career at the University of Southern California before transferring to Kentucky after his first year (redshirt) with the school. He was forced to sit out the 2017 season due to NCAA transfer rules.

With Price playing in the CFL, Kentucky redshirt junior Landon Young will take back the starting left tackle position while sophomores Naasir Watkins and Darian Kinnard will compete for the starting job at left tackle.

    This man has wings, given his flighty nature.

    Which makes sense.

    Because it takes balls to be grounded and love a program enough to learn and grow and become a man and a Football player.

    Flown the coop – too many times.

      IF this is a path to peace for him, then good on him. IF it’s not, i hope he learns instead of leaves next time.

    If he had his head on straight he could be playing in THE league. Oh well.

  5. Hopefully he likes poutine and Tim Horton’s coffee.
