Report: Former LSU DB Kelvin Joseph transfers to Kentucky
Former LSU defensive back Kelvin Joseph has found a new college football home.
Joseph has transferred to Kentucky, per a Rivals report. The talented defensive back first jumped in the NCAA transfer portal in May before hopping out and rejoining the team. However, Joseph went back into the portal on July 17, and he’s now headed to Kentucky.
The 6-1, 195-pound corner is a big-time addition for Mark Stoops and the Wildcats program, and it adds to an already loaded projected 2020 defensive. Joseph will have to sit out the 2019 season due to NCAA transfer rules unless he receives a waiver.
Around the time of his reported commitment to Kentucky, Joseph took to social media.
