Another Troy DB Out for Season

TROY, Ala. (AP) - Troy sophomore KeJuan Phillips has been ruled
academically ineligible for the 2009 football season.

Head coach Larry Blakeney said Tuesday that Phillips will use the year as a redshirt.

Phillips was in line to be the starter at cornerback opposite redshirt freshman Bryan Willis for Thursday night's opener at Bowling Green.

Junior college transfer sophomore Barry Valcin will now be the
starting cornerback.

It is unclear why the news of Phillips and senior Jorrick Calvin's ineligibility came out well after preseason camp started.

The third cornerback will now be senior Justin Bray, who moved over to cornerback midway through camp after playing wide receiver for most of his career.
