Two more former Wildcats will be joining the latest professional football league. Jordan Jones and Farrington Huguenin have been selected in Wednesday’s round of the XFL Draft.
Jones, who participated in the 2019 NFL Combine but ultimately went undrafted, was selected by the DC Defenders. The Defenders also picked up former Cat Jon Toth.
Huguenin, who played for Kentucky during Mark Stoops’ first three years with the Wildcats, went to the St. Louis BattleHawks. The defensive end originally went undrafted in 2016 before bouncing around through various NFL practice squads. He was released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last month.
Jones and Huguenin join former UK kicker Austin MacGinnis in the fifth and final round of the inagural XFL Draft, while Toth and Jeff Badet were selected during earlier rounds Tuesday.
The XFL league has announced its season will begin Feb. 8, the weekend after the NFL season ends with the Super Bowl.
