Two top Kentucky recruits bail out
Guidulgi reconsidering his commitment
Kentucky lost two of its top recruits following coach Hal Mumme resignation Tuesday amid allegations of NCAA violations in his program.
Kentucky Mr. Football Montrell Jones, an all-state wideout from Louisville Male, signed with Tennessee.
Mason County quarterback Harry Lewis changed his mind and signed with North Carolina.
Highlands QB Gino Guidugli, a first-team all-state quarterback who threw for more than 4,367 yards and 51 touchdowns last season, told UK coaches he would wait a few days and weigh his options before announcing his decision.
UK did sign 17 high school recruits Wednesday, the first day of the national signing period, including two of Guidugli teammates, Ben Scott, a 6-foot-3, 229-pound defensive lineman, and Brett Hamblen, a 6-foot, 190-pound defensive back.
