Over the past few days, much speculation has swirled on the future of Carrington Valentine. Some had him staying for one more year, another group had him transferring, others had him going into the draft, while a very delusional group had him heading to Louisville to play for new coach Jeff Brohm. Valentine quickly dismissed the Louisville rumors with a hilarious tweet that just said “Nah” with a picture of him holding Ls Down in Kentucky’s most recent win over the Cards. A little before noon today, Carrington Valentine finally his future decision and decided to forego his final year of eligibility and head into the NFL draft. Valentine mad a monstrous improvement in the most recent season, not letting any opposing receiver dominate the game when Valentine was in coverage. Big Blue Nation definitely wishes Carrington the best as he heads into his NFL future.
