    UK Dismisses Alex Smith

    Never could have predicted this one with how he handled his recruitment.

    University of Kentucky tight end Alex Smith has been dismissed from the football team for an unspecified violation of team rules.

    UK spokesman Tony Neely confirmed Smithís dismissal Tuesday.

    Smith, a 6-foot-5, 248-pound redshirt freshman from Cincinnati, was a highly recruited prospect in the high school class of 2009, ranked the nationís No. 11 tight end by Rivals.com, which ranked the Lakota West High School product the No. 13 overall prospect in Ohio.

    I am not sure Alex Smith ends up anywhere as a football player. I can see him enrolled as a student, but he has shown little or no interest in being a football player.

    Not likely. He didn't exactly make many allies at UC...
