Earlier this week Kentucky coach Mark Stoops joked that he did not have nearly the distractions that Alabama coach Nick Saban has.
So what did Stoops think of speculation earlier this week that junior linebacker Josh Allen could be a first round draft pick in 2018>
“I believe that was the rat poison coach Saban was referring to. That kind of information is just reckless. So, lets him – He’s a true junior. Let’s let him play the game and mature and play the right way,” Stoops said.
“That kind of information is very, very, like I said, reckless, and it’s hard for kids not to hear that. So, Josh and I have had a couple talks since then, and he’s focused and ready to play and doing some very good things.”
