Sources told 27 SportsFirst on Thursday that former Wildcat quarterback Curtis Pulley will not be allowed to transfer to EKU.
Pulley was kicked off the UK team earlier this week, then spoke with Colonels’ coach Dean Hood Tuesday. The Hopkinsville native then attended an Eastern practice on Wednesday, while waiting word from the EKU administration on a possible transfer.
Sources tell us that Hood was in favor of allowing Pulley to transfer, but Easter president Doug Whitlock intervened, telling Pulley he would not be allowed to play for the Colonels.
EKU football recently was in the headlines, after a player was arrested following an alleged shoplifting incident. That player fled police, injuring a woman in the process.
We’re told EKU didn’t want more headlines about the football program and players with police blotter material.
So Pulley is left searching for a school. Word has it he has Austin Peay and Georgia Southern on his radar. My guess is there are a couple more that we’ll learn about in the coming days.
Those are the highlights… Stay tuned.
