Javon Provitt is going to JUCO


Mark Stoops will have to wait a little longer than expected to get one of his defensive linemen on campus. Javon Provitt, a three-star defensive tackle from Stoops’ 2015 class, told the Herald-Leader he is heading to junior college to get his grades straight before beginning his career as a Wildcat.

Provitt will attend Lackawanna College for a year and a half with intentions of being enrolled in Lexington for Spring 2017.

“It’s basically because my test scores are low,” he explained to Ben Roberts.

Lackawanna College is in Scranton, Pennsylvania, about 300 miles east of Provitt’s hometown in northern Ohio. It

When he signed with Kentucky in the spring, Mark Stoops said, “Javon is a big, powerful defensive lineman who is also explosive. With his quick first step, he could be extremely disruptive.”

    Damn this sucks. I’ve watched a lot of film on these guys and Provitt has 5 star talent. His explosion off the ball is something that almost will remind you of Warren Sapp, Outside of Kengera Daniel, he’s the guy I was looking to see what kind of immediate impact he could make. Hopefully, he’ll get his grades in order and get to UK ASAP.

    *Can we get KCTCS to start football teams? UK could just JUCO their recruits to BCTC.
