UK loses a talented running back, which also leaves this position very thin.

The Kentucky Wildcats have lost their second player to transfer in as many days.

On Tuesday, running back Bryant Koback announced his decision to transfer from UK. He posted the news on Twitter:

Koback, who was recovering from a broken leg suffered during his senior season at Springfield High School, missed much of the offseason due to his recovery. He was eventually cleared to practice, though he ended up redshirting this past season.

Koback came to UK from Holland, Ohio, one of the many recruits drawn to Lexington by Mark Stoops from the Buckeye State. He is a three-star recruit (ranked by 247Sports) and was ranked as the No. 37 running back in the 2017 class.

Koback was building an impressive senior season that was cut short by the aforementioned broken leg. In the preceding game, Koback rushed for 375 yards and six touchdowns and had compiled 1,096 yards on 93 touches with 21 total touchdowns (19 rushing and 2 receiving) in just four games.

Koback chose UK over West Virginia, Georgia, and Northwestern.
