LEXINGTON, Ky. – Wide receiver E.J. Adams, and tight ends Chris Cessna and DeAunte Mason have left the University of Kentucky football team, Coach Rich Brooks has announced.
Adams has left the team for personal reasons. He started nine games last year, catching 14 passes for 180 yards. He played cornerback his first two seasons at UK before switching to receiver in 2008. He will enter the NFL supplemental draft.
Cessna has given up football because of injuries. He plans to stay in school and will receive a medical hardship scholarship. He did not see varsity game action during his two years with the team.
Mason plans to transfer to another school. He redshirted in 2008 as a freshman quarterback and moved to tight end during spring practice.
