Travonte Valentine Has Decommitted From Miami

See, today’s not all bad news!

Jimmy D. Smith (@JimmyDetail) of The Times-Picayune in New Orleans has reported that 4-Star DT Travonte Valentine has de-committed from Miami, which had been rumored the last couple of days at the Army All-American Bowl. Valentine’s de-commitment comes following reports that Miami’s Al Golden has been offered and more than likely will accept the job at Penn State, his alma mater.

Valentine is ranked as the 7th best DT in the 2014 class, and the 56th best player overall according to 247Sports and is ranked #115 in the 247Composite rankings, accounting for all the major recruiting services. The 6’3 338lb. Palm Bay, FL prospect announced yesterday that he would be taking an official visit to Kentucky on January 23-24 and has expressed interest in playing with another UK DT target, Matt Elam. Valentine will also take a visit to LSU the weekend before he comes up to Lexington, he has said that the Tigers are his current leader.

Valentine’s decision is expected to come down to Kentucky, Miami, and LSU. That sounds about right.

    Would love to get this kid with Elam. Neither of them would have to worry about getting double teamed playing side by side.

      Kind of hard for them to play side by side when they are both DTs.

    @William_Titan don’t get your hopes up. Golden was never the major draw for Berrios, he’s been a Miami fan his whole life

      oh yeah… i forgot about that. so the coaching change is most definitely irrelevant in his situation. im not the one to complain though. we have a killer class of WR’s this not to mention the rest of the guys. just a thought 🙂

    Haha…funny that out off all of these players that were rumored to commit (Elam, Valentine, Smith, Lattimore) UK will end up with none.

      What’s even funnier is none of these guys ever considered UofL, Elam just had them on his list as a courtesy.

      Non considered Louisville ??? Reality is a bitch isn’t it Reality ?

      It’s funny he uses the name “Reality” yet never posts anything having to do with actual reality, like UK>UofL for example.

    KSR can’t continue to create propaganda and build false hope with the Glenville guys any longer. Looks like it’s time to do it with another player now.

      And?… believe none of what you hear and less of what you read. Then enjoy life.. and recruiting ,, and go buy a box of chocolates, never know what you’ll find inside.

      Go Cats! It’s about being alive.

    I see the 9 bitter Louisville fans camping outside Charlie Strongs house have internet access on their phones and would rather troll the KSR comments section than watch through the windows as Charlie packs his things.

    No one except people from Jefferson County gives a damn about UofL outside of Jefferson County while UK has fans worldwide.

    @Delusion There are plenty of other websites you can visit if you think we are “delusional”. If you don’t believe we are giving good information why are you here?

    Just turn Drew Barker loose on all remaining non-commits. It’s worked out great so far!

      Define “worked out great”…

      Matt Elam, Marcelys Jones, Eric Smith, and Marshon Lattimore beg to differ…

      Considering Elam & Jones haven’t picked a school yet it’s very ignorant (aka UofL fan) to act as if they have & Barker hasn’t put in recruiting work for us.

      Considering Jones was the first official commitment to Ohio State’s 2014 class back in 2012, I’d say he has picked a school. It’s very ignorant of a UK fan, well maybe it’s very typical, to say otherwise.



    • LOL

      Louisville1Cal5, did you not know Jones committed to Ohio State? Priceless. That’s a UK football fan for you, folks.

      Yeah you tell em Buck I! We’re disregarding him signing a financial aid agreement with UK, he’s totally 100% sold on OSU, I mean why else would he do that if he wasn’t? Go Buckeyes, we haven’t won anything of significance in forever but that won’t stop us from beating our chests!

      Don’t be mad because you got trolled by our recruits. LOL. By the way, the only people saying he signed a financial agreement with UK, is KSR. You should know by know how accurate they are. #Glenville-Trio-To-UK
