Stoops: Cornerback Harmon no longer with team

Cornerback J.D. Harmon, a former walk-on from Paducah, is no longer practicing with the team, Stoops confirmed after practice on Tuesday night. The sophomore started in three games last season and finished with 24 tackles. He led the team in interceptions with two last season.

“It doesn’t look like J.D.’s going to be with us, J.D. Harmon,” Coach Mark Stoops said. “It does not look like he’s going to be with us.”

When asked if Harmon was one of the potential “academic casualties” discussed the night before, UK spokesman Tony Neely interjected that the school did not plan to be more specific.
