The Kentucky Wildcats have lost a promising player from its 2019 class. Cavon Butler took to Twitter to announce that he is entering the transfer portal.

Butler was three-star defensive tackle in the 2019 class and the 37th-ranked player in the Ohio. He held offers from Ohio State, Alabama and Michigan State among others.

While it’s always unfortunate to see things know work out, most people around the program did expect a few transfers to come as the Cats loaded up in this class and were sitting a few over the scholarship marks.

Another reason that this isn't a big surprise is due the fact that Kentucky is loaded this season with likes of Phil Hoskins, Marquan McCall, Abule Abadi-Fitzgerald, Quinton Bohanna and others. Not to mention that Kentucky brings in one of the best defensive line classes in the country.

According to Rivals, this incoming defensive line class, which features five-star defensive tackle Justin Rogers and four-star defensive tackle Josiah Hayes, is the third-best in country, as they only trail Clemson and Alabama.

I think its safe to say that the BBN will wish Cavon Butler the best in his future endeavors and they wish it could have worked out for him in Lexington.
