Lynn Bowden at Kentucky practice facility, but status remains unchanged

The Lynn Bowden saga continued Friday morning. He was spotted at Kentucky’s football training facility, but a UK spokesperson confirmed to SEC Country that there’s no update on his status.

Bowden, the No. 1 ranked signee in Kentucky’s 2017 class, is the only Wildcats freshman who has yet to join the team. Kentucky coach Mark Stoops said on Sunday that it was an academic eligibility issue causing the delay.

Bowden, a 4-star athlete from Youngstown, Ohio, was expected to make an early impact for the Cats. It’s unclear when he’ll be cleared and what effect the enrollment delay could have on his playing time.
