Tuesday brought excellent news for the Kentucky football program. A grand jury decided not to indict six Kentucky football players involved in a fraternity party incident this August. Andru Phillips, Earnest Sanders, Joel Williams, JuTahn McClain, RJ Adams and Vito Tisdale had their names cleared and are allowed back at practice.
Head coach Mark Stoops had a brief comment following Tuesday’s practice.
“We stuck by our players. We believed in them and we believed at the end of this process they would be exonerated, and they were.”
I just want to get on here and thank the lord, my family/friends and anyone else who has been there with me through this whole situation. Today my fabricated charges were finally dropped, and I can do nothing but thank the lord . Time to get back to work!! #BBN— dru (@AndruPhillips) September 28, 2021
The six players were not available for comment, but a couple did take their opinion to social media.

Six players missed team activities for 13 weeks because they were wrongly accused. Thankfully they had proper representation and the truth was revealed, otherwise who knows what their situation may look like. You’ll find full details on which charges were dropped as well as which chargers were upheld on Tuesday at this link.
