Kentucky loses two players on defense

Two defensive players who were both highly regarded as recruits are no longer with the Kentucky football program, UK spokesman Tony Neely confirmed Thursday night. Nermin Delic, a 6-foot-5 defensive end who played in eight games as a freshman, has opted to give up football. Delic had five tackles and a quarterback sack for a fumble. Brice Laughlin, a 6-foot-3 redshirt defensive tackle from Summerville, S.C., will not be eligible this season and has not enrolled for school in the fall.
