Kentucky Wildcats Morning Quickies: Joker Phillips Edition

Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

News and commentary from around the Big Blue Internet. Kentucky loses quarterback to ACC school. Julius Randle to have foot surgery after the NBA Draft. Kentucky's Sha'Keela Saunders wins silver medal in NCAA Tournament for long jump. More.

Joker Phillips abruptly resigned as Florida Gators wide receiver coach for "personal reasons" yesterday, producing wild speculation around the Internet. We'll have more on this story a bit later.

This made me laugh:

Your Quickies:

Kentucky football
  • Kentucky cornerback recruit Von Davis looked really good at the Jimbo Fisher football camp this past weekend.

  • For the Kentucky defense, it starts in the middle:

    Right now, in the starting spots, you’ve got a senior with 56 career tackles in Mike Douglas, a Red-shirt freshman who has been whispered about for months in Regie Meant, a JUCO standout CJ Johnson, a Kentucky boy who has impressed coaches in practice in Jacob Hyde, and of course, a 5* Defensive Tackle that turned down Alabama for Kentucky in Matt Elam.

  • Kentucky loses a quarterback recruit to N.C. State. UK is pretty stacked at that spot, so landing a quality QB this year will be ... tricky.
