Montgomery not quite ready; Badet will be limited

Mark Stoops delivered some news regarding the receiving corps at his luncheon today. Two of his projected starters, sophomores Alexander Montgomery and Jeff Badet, are still recovering from injury entering Monday’s camp.

Montgomery, who caught two touchdown passes last season, will not be ready to go on Monday. He’s still easing back from a torn ACL, an injury he suffered while celebrating a touchdown in the eighth game of the 2013 season.

Badet will practice but he will be limited until later in the fall. The third-leading receiver from a year ago broke his leg in spring practice.

This is an opportunity for the new guys to take advantage of the extra reps with the first team.

    High profile RB (No. 11 APB) Samuel committed to the Dirty birds over UK and Auburn and Alabama today. I hope we can get Harris away from OSU but it’s not looking too good, this kid Samuel was the next highest rated back we were after. This one hurts a little bit but again, hopefully we can get Harris and not have to even think twice about it.

    (Sorry, can’t remember his first name. He was in the ESPN predictions article posted yesterday… Predicted to UK- whoops)

      Yes, it does sting. But we do have a good batch of solid running backs. If we miss on a good running back with this next recruiting class but get a good one with the year after that, we should be okay.

    No problem, both Stoops and Brown said last years receiving core was the worst they had ever had. Great comments by the way.

    Instead of bashing players, maybe with the millions they are making they should have bought the 2,500 remaining UK/UL tickets and donated them to needy kids instead of allowing Louisville to get them back and make it more hostile this year.

      Did you buy tickets to the U of L game??

      Also, Brown and Stoops did not bash our current players. They were referring to the fact that we have a very young and inexperienced receiving corps, which is true. We went into last season without a single receiver who had ever caught a touchdown pass. Many were true freshmen. This is what stoops and Brown were talking about, which you would know if you actually paid attention and listened.
