In this blog post from CBSSports' Jeff Borzello, the father of Stacey Poole Jr. tells Borzello he can't confirm that his son will be leaving the UK program. More telling, Poole Sr. doesn't deny his son is leaving.
Of course last year, Poole, a top 35 recruit from Jacksonville, played sparingly, but seemed to be fully involved with the team, as he was often the first player off the bench cheering his teammates. This season, with the loss of Jon Hood to a knee injury, Poole was thought to be in line for more minutes at the "2" guard spot, but according to Borzello's report, has been struggling in practice.
We'll have more as the story develops.
