Kentucky's scholarship crunch may have found its first casualty.
Hopkinsville's highly-regarded defensive back, Brian Dodd, says he's still evaluating his college choices after being notified by UK that his scholarship offer had been rescinded. The Cats have commitments for 10 of their 16 available scholarships for 2002.
"They told me they were out of scholarships at my position," he said. "If they keep one open, though, I'd probably take it. But I haven't heard from them in a while. I really don't know if they're still interested."
Dodd, a 5-foot-11, 185-pound corner with 4.35 speed and a 300-pound bench press, has helped lead the Tigers to 11 straight wins since a season-opening loss to Louisville Male. Hopkinsville plays host to Bowling Green and UK verbal Brad Booker (LB) on Friday.
Dodd has approximately 700 yards rushing, 300 yards receiving and five interceptions for the Tigers this season.
He's currently considering offers from Cincinnati, Arkansas and Clemson.
