The Kentucky Track and Field team has lost its third star in a week.

Junior hurdler Jasmine Camacho-Quinn has decided to forego her final year of eligibility and will turn pro.

Camacho-Quinn won the NCAA championship in the 100-meter hurdles on Saturday in Eugene, Oregon, her second title in the event and fourth title of her Kentucky career.

Former Kentucky head coach Edrick Floréal left the Cats on Wednesday to take over the Texas Longhorn program.

UK freshman sensation Sydney McLaughlin announced last Saturday that she would be also be turning pro. It has since been reported that McLaughlin will join Floréal this offseason in Austin, TX to train for the professional ranks. Camacho-Quinn is also expected to participate.

Best of luck to all three (now) former Wildcats going forward.
