Kentucky defender reportedly leaving Wildcats to transfer to JUCO ranks
As part of the 2018 recruiting class, 4-star OLB Xavier Peters was originally committed to Kentucky before flipping to Florida State.
Then, ahead of the 2019 campaign, he decided to transfer from Florida State and come back to Kentucky. In 2019, he appeared in 3 games, recording 1 tackle against Vanderbilt.
Now, though, it appears Peters will be on the move again, as it was reported on Saturday that he was heading to Garden City Junior College:

Peters was the No. 12 outside linebacker in the class of 2018 and the No. 6 overall recruit from the state of Ohio, per the 247Sports composite rankings.
Whether or not Peters finds his way back to the Division 1 (or Kentucky, specifically) remains to be seen.
