LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky cornerback Paul Warford has been
ruled ineligible for the 2008 season, though he could return to the
team in 2009.
Warford started 11 games for the Wildcats last season, with 41
tackles and two interceptions. The junior from Richmond, Ky., will
not be enrolled during the fall semester and will be redshirted by
the team. He could return to school in January and be back on the
field in 2009.
The Wildcats could also be without offensive guard Christian
Johnson this season. The senior from Fort Campbell, Ky., has a back
injury and is facing an eligibility issue. Johnson has started 15
games in three seasons with the Wildcats and could be redshirted if
Kentucky opens training camp on Tuesday.
