With only days until the season tips off, Kentucky’s roster still seems to be in a state of fluctuation.
Reports swirled Tuesday night that one player would be leaving the Wildcats on Wednesday, and sources indicate the likely candidate is sophomore forward Stacey Poole.
When reached on Tuesday night, Poole’s father did not deny the reports.
“I can’t confirm the rumor at this time,” Poole Sr. told CBSSports.com.
Poole Jr. and his former AAU coaches did not respond to phone calls and text messages.
Poole is a 6-foot-4 swingman from Florida who played a total of 45 minutes last season. With the addition of four star freshmen, his playing time was not likely to increase. Moreover, reports out of the Wildcats’ early practices and workouts indicated that Poole has struggled and has often been frustrated.
