Redshirt freshman running back Justin Taylor has been granted his release from Kentucky and will transfer. The 5-10, 215-pound Taylor was a three-star recruit from Atlanta in the 2012 recruiting class. He originally committed to Alabama before a knee injury his senior year led to Alabama asking him to delay his enrollment. When that happened, he signed with Kentucky.

However, he was redshirted last season and came out of spring practice fifth on the depth chart. There had been rumors earlier this spring he left the team, but UK officials denied those reports.

Taylor has not said where he will transfer to, but reports have indicated it could be South Carolina State.

    Good luck Justin.

    He was a redshirt so he had plenty of time ahead of him to get it done. I think this speaks to the depth UK has at RB. I hope he finds what he’s looking for. I wish him well.
