LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Bryant Koback is the second UK football Wildcat to announce his transfer in the past two days.
According to WTOL in Toledo, Ohio, Koback will transfer after just one season in Lexington. Koback tells WTOL he wants to be closer to his mother.
“There’s no feeling like home,” Koback tells WTOL. “I’m not one to trust right away. Comfort of family and friends is huge.”
Koback says he has narrowed his list of schools to Toledo, Bowling Green and Eastern Michigan, all of which are within 45 minutes of his home in Holland, Ohio.
Koback says UK has given the freshman running back his release,
UK coach Mark Stoops released this statement Wednesday afternoon:
"Since I've been at Kentucky, our policy has been that we will not approve a transfer to a Southeastern Conference school or future non-conference opponent. Until this afternoon, Bryant had never talked to me personally to ask me to change that policy. Following a discussion this afternoon, I've decided to allow Bryant to transfer to Toledo or Eastern Michigan if he so chooses. We wish Bryant and his family the best."
