Kentucky dismisses Thomas brothers from team

The Associated PressJuly 11, 2013 

— Kentucky has dismissed sophomore linebacker Kadeem “Pancho” Thomas and younger brother Khalid, a freshman running back, for violation of team rules.

Wildcats athletic department spokesman Tony Neely confirmed the players' dismissals Thursday but did not specify what rules were broken.

The elder Thomas had 12 tackles in 10 games last season backing up senior middle linebacker Avery Williamson while participating on special teams. Khalid Thomas was signed by Kentucky after leading Godby High School (Tallahassee, Fla.) to the state AAAAA championship last season.
