Kayaune Ross’ Kentucky Career is Finished

A University of Kentucky spokesperson has confirmed what we already thought — wide receiver Kayaune Ross has played his final game for the University of Kentucky.

A junior college transfer who played the past two seasons at UK, the school initially thought Ross had three years of eligibility.  According to our friend Derek Terry, Ross previously enrolled at two different junior colleges, starting his eligibility clock one year sooner than expected.  Mark Stoops had the chance to petition for another year of eligibility, a petition that appears to have failed.  Ross participated in Senior Day festivities prior to the Louisville game.

Limited by an ankle injury in his first year at UK, this season the outside receiver stepped into the starting rotation in place of the injured Dorian Baker.  In 2017 Ross caught 19 passes for 286 yards; 67 of the yards came on three receptions in the Music City Bowl.

    Looks like Baker, Richardson, and Bowden will be the starting receivers next year. No significant game experience behind them, so great opportunity for a good receiver to sign in Feb. I predict Bryce Oliver will have a big freshman season.

    Do any of these people here even watch football? He missed one season due to injury, not 3. Good grief

    Still very disappointing news. Kid was just hitting his stride. Glad the NCAA is all about the student athletes. Unless you’re Baker Mayfield, someone going to Notre Dame, or the like, they could care less about you and your time on campus. All they care about is money
