According to reports, the Kentucky football program secured a new addition late Monday night. Former LSU defensive back Kelvin Joseph is transferring to UK.

The four-star recruit played in 11 games in 2018 for the Tigers, totaling 12 tackles and a pass breakup. The report says Joseph is to start classes in Lexington Tuesday, but per NCAA rule, he will have to sit out this season and will be eligible to play in 2020.
