Will Jackson has been Dismissed from the Football Team

Redshirt freshman cornerback Will Jackson has been dismissed from the Kentucky football team for a violation of team rules, a UK spokesman confirmed to Jon Hale of The Courier-Journal.

A product of the Washington D.C. area, Jackson was a late addition to the 2015 class after experiencing a rash of defections near National Signing Day.  A hulking, strong corner, Freddie Maggard was a big proponent of the raw talent, excited to see his development.  Unfortunately, that will not be at Kentucky.

Jackson’s absence should not be detrimental to the depth chart.  Two members of his recruiting class — Chris Westry and Derrick Baity — finished the year as starters with fellow freshman Kei Beckham redshirting.  Sophomore Jared Tucker is in the mix, J.D. Harmon will be back this fall for his Senior campaign and three of the best ’16 signees are cornerbacks.

    Maybe we should be like the rest of the schools in the SEC and just turn a blind eye. Hell. Florida does it all the time and has the arrest records to prove it.

      Hero’s? Somewhere in a basement in UofL’s dorms, a basketball player is crying while getting a lap dance because he can’t go to the tourney this year.

    What in the world do these kids do to get dimissed? Seems like you have to go out of your way for that kinda stuff and not just talking about smoking the green. Yeesh.

    Nick, we’re not talented enough to EVER say this about UK football. We are not Alabama, and 1 or 2 DB injuries (or any other position) can really hurt.

      I think he just means that, of our many positions that would suffer season-ruining decimation by any injury or dismissal, this particular position isn’t the worst.

      I thought he gave a very good summary of why this should not be detrimental to our depth chart. Did we miss something? Sounds like we’re fairly deep at his position.
