Running back JoJo Kemp just became the latest Kentucky Wildcat to sign a free agent deal with an NFL team following this weekend’s draft. According to UK, Kemp has signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Meanwhile, defensive back Blake McClain tweeted that he’s got minicamp try outs with the Cincinnati Bengals and Washington Redskins:
Bengals and red skins mini camp . All I can ask is for an opportunity and blessed for that! Make the most of it #UnderDog

Here’s a running tab of which NFL Cats went were in the last few days:
- Boom Williams: Signed with Cincinnati Bengals
- JD Harmon: Signed with Cleveland Browns
- Ryan Timmons: Signed with Chicago Bears
- JoJo Kemp: Signed with Tampa Bay Buccaneers
- Blake McClain: Mini-camp try outs with Cincinnati Bengals and Washington Redskins
Meanwhile, still no news on Kentucky’s top draft prospect, Jon Toth. Toth was considered the fourth best center in the draft by ESPN’s Todd McShay, but, mysteriously, went undrafted. There were rumors he was going to sign with the San Francisco 49ers, but those have since been shot down after rumblings of a potential injury. Hmm.
Stay tuned for more on Toth. In the meantime, congrats to JoJo, Blake, and all the other former Cats who have a chance at making a roster.
