2019 four-star defensive end signee and current Kentucky freshman pass-rusher JJ Weaver isn’t going anywhere… If you ask his mother, at least.
Over the last several days, rumors have circulated that the Louisville, KY (Moore Traditional) product was second-guessing his decision to sign with Kentucky and was contemplating a transfer to the University of Louisville.
And then over at Cardinal Authority – Louisville’s 247Sports affiliate – UofL insider Jody Demling reportedly said there is “smoke” to these rumors, adding that it’s “not a flimsy rumor” that the prized Kentucky signee was thinking about heading home to play for the Cardinals.
This afternoon, however, the former four-star prospect’s mother, Stacey Sherrell, announced on Twitter that her son “AIN’T GOING NO DAMM WHERE” and respectfully asked fans to “KILL THAT NOISE!!”

Weaver was listed as the No. 213 prospect in the class of 2019, the 14th-best player in the class at his position, and the fourth-best prospect in the state of Kentucky on Rivals.com. As a senior, the Moore Traditional product recorded 70 tackles, 10 sacks, three interceptions and a fumble recovery, helping lead Moore to 11 wins and a spot in the quarterfinals of the state championships.
Weaver chose Kentucky over Louisville, Miami, Georgia, Tennessee, Ole Miss, and Purdue, among others, out of high school.
Through six games, the 6-foot-5, 237-pound outside linebacker has not played and is currently on pace to redshirt this season.
