The position of wide receiver at Kentucky suffered a one-two blow recently, although only one’s permanent.
First the “good” news as head coach Mark Stoops confirmed that Jeff Badet suffered a broken fibula during Monday’s practice. What was a non-contact break, oddly enough, will sideline the sophomore for 2-3 months, although, as the receiver didn’t undergo surgery, he should be back in plenty of time for the start of summer camp.
Last season as a true freshman, Badet was third on the team in receptions (22) and receiving yards (285).
At the opposite end of the spectrum is A.J. Legree (pictured), who Stoops confirmed has decided to part ways with the football program. No reason was given for the departure.
“He’s gonna quit and go play somewhere else and we wish him the best of luck,” Stoops succinctly stated.
Legree, a three-star member of UK’s 2012 recruiting class, caught seven passes for 97 yards last season after catching 12 for 113 as a true freshman the year before.
