Jarrett LaRubbio leaves Kentucky Football to join Miami Redhawks

The Kentucky Wildcats are losing another player to transfer on the gridiron.

This time, it's offensive lineman Jarrett LaRubbio transferring to join Miami University, according to our friends over at Hustle Belt. There have been rumblings a UK offensive lineman would transfer soon, so this LaRubbio  news comes as little surprise.

LaRubbio, who stands at 6-6 and 297 pounds, was rated a three-star prospect by most major recruiting services and was a member of UK's 2014 recruiting class out of Lakota East (Ohio). He chose UK over Arizona State, Louisville, Nebraska, North Carolina, Vanderbilt and Wisconsin among other BCS schools.

After redshirting his first season, LaRubbio only saw action in one game as redshirt freshman in 2015, which was UK's win over Charlotte. He was listed at guard, but never could climb the depth chart enough to get onto the field more, something he hopes to get more in the MAC with the Redhawks.

The good news for Kentucky is there's plenty of depth at guard for at least the next two years. Nick Haynes, Ramsey Meyers, George Asafo-Adjei, Cole Mosier and Zach Myers all have experience at guard. Jervontius Stallings has some experience there as well, and then there's incoming four-star center Drake Jackson, who played a lot of guard in high school.
