Travonte Valentine is going through with what he hinted at earlier today: he canceled his official visit to Alabama on January 24 and will visit Kentucky instead. The four-star defensive tackle, currently committed to Miami, the Florida one, has become close to Drew Barker, Matt Elam and Marcelys Jones this week in San Antonio and he’s interested in all the buzz around Kentucky. Valentine and his new friends spoke to the UK coaching staff Wednesday and they pitched the idea of the group being a package deal to UK.
Nick Saban must really, really hate Mark Stoops right now. Not only he is on the Oklahoma sideline, but he has All-American defensive tackles canceling official visits to Tuscaloosa.
