The UK boss also revealed that freshman safety Darius West, a four-star signee in the Cats' highly-regarded recruiting class, will not play this season due to a "lower-leg injury." He noted that West had been impressive during the summer and was expected to give the defense depth at safety.
West's senior season at Central Catholic in Lima, Ohio, had also been cut short by a broken leg. He played just two games in his final year at the prep level, then re-injured the leg in his rehabilitation, but was cleared to resume football activities this summer.
