Dyshawn Mobley was one of Kentucky's lone bright spots on the offensive side of the football in the final two games of the season, but the sophomore running back has informed the staff of his intent to transfer, the school confirmed today.

Dyshawn Mobley was one of Kentucky's lone bright spots on the offensive side of the football in the final two games of the season, but the sophomore running back has informed the staff of his intent to transfer, the school confirmed today.

Mobley rushed for 235 yards on 27 carries in UK's final two games against Georgia and Tennessee, but had only 16 carries in the first 10 games. The Tennessee native was primarily used on special teams, where he earned praise from UK head coach Mark Stoops for his effort and hustle.

He finished the season with 14 tackles, leading to speculation he may be moved to linebacker during spring practice, but the staff shot that rumor down after his strong performance carrying the ball in the final two games.

If he had remained on the offensive side of the ball, Mobley would have been part of an already-crowded backfield that included JoJo Kemp (the Wildcats' leading rusher in 2013 with 482 yards), the return of junior Josh Clemons (who sat out this season due to a knee injury), Nebraska transfer Braylon Heard (who earned praise for his play on the scout team this season) and highly-regarded signee Mikel Horton, a four-star prospect from Ohio who will enroll in January.
