Former Kentucky defensive back Jared Tucker has not gone far. Tucker left the UK football program ahead of fall camp, traveling just a few miles down the road to Richmond to play for the Eastern Kentucky Colonels.
The new addition to EKU’s roster is just one of many former Wildcats to become a Colonel.
Running back Dashawn Mobley is the greatest success story, earning OVC Offensive Player of the Year honors in 2014. Defensive end Patrick Grafree is another UK transfer to make headlines in Richmond, but his biggest hit wasn’t on the field, it was the hit he laid on Drew Barker in an EKU dorm.
After this move, and the offseason addition of Maty Mauk, I think it’s safe to say EKU is Transfer U.
