Just over two years ago Kentucky coach Mark Stoops hailed Ohio running back Mikel Horton for his talent and leadership in helping putting together UK’s highly ranked 2014 recruiting class.
Horton enrolled at UK midway through his high school senior season and was ranked as one of the top 15 running backs in the nation.
He played in every game as a freshman and sophomore, but he’s played sparingly this year and has left the team and will transfer when the semester ends. Stoops, though, didn’t seem all that upset about Horton’s departure on the SEC coaches teleconference Wednesday.
