Mark Stoops Explains What Happened to E.J. Price

@Goaldyn

As the Kentucky football team left the spring practice field, offensive tackle E.J. Price sent out a dozen fiery Tweets, including one announcing his departure from the Kentucky football team.  The Tweets have since been deleted.

Mark Stoops told reporters after practice that Price arrived late.  After sitting out of a few drills, he briefly participated in practice, then decided to leave before the final whistle.

“I’m not sure where he’s at, what the status is, but we’re trying to help E.J,” Stoops said.  “We’ve been trying to help him through some ups and downs.  That’s just it.  We haven’t had any long periods of time where it’s been up to standard.”

KSTV has Stoops’ complete remarks on Price.

    Nick Haynes now him wanting about the coaches. Maybe there is something we dont know. Or maybe kids these days are just so entitled they cant handle the discipline.

      Mental health help has to be accepted, unless the guy becomes a danger to himself or others.

    Or maybe social media allows us to hear their in the moment thoughts. Didn’t have that in past. And per usual said spontaneous thoughts get deleted.

    From the video it sounds like he had issues even before he transferred from USC. I hope he will accept the help that is being offered, because he is pretty clearly unstable.

    Hmm…Sounds like it could be bipolar disorder. Just from being around people with it. I hope he seeks out help. Medication today can truly change your life for the better.
