He'll have to give back about $1,000 he's earned in a barnstorming tour with other UK basketball players since the basketball season ended and won't be able to play in any more of those type games.
Kentucky coach Rich Brooks says Moss has been given approval by UK compliance director Sandy Bell to be on the football team.
"He just decided he wanted to give football a fair shot," Brooks said. "He missed it quite a bit and I think he liked the idea of playing with his brother."
Austin Moss is a walk-on defensive tackle who had a fumble recovery in Saturday's scrimmage.
Ravi Moss had two passes thrown his way. The first one was a 6-yard completion that brought a quick reaction along the sidelines from him.
Has the ability to help team
"Oh, yeah. That's my first one, baby. High five," Moss said even though the official he asked for a hand slap just walked away.
The second one was a lob pass into the corner of the end zone that cornerback Travis Lindley intercepted.
"The last play was not a great call, but we wanted him to get that opportunity to catch the ball. In another four to five days, that pass will be incomplete because Ravi will go up and knock it away," Brooks said. "He has the ability to help this team. We'll just see how it all shakes out."
Ravi Moss stayed in touch with UK offensive coordinator Joker Phillips and receiver Keenan Burton after he left the team. Phillips credited Burton with helping persuade Moss to come back.
"Keenan played as big a hand in this as anybody," Phillips said. "They are good friends. He's going to live with Keenan. They are going to run routes together. He's all in now, and that's what we want."
McCutchan eligible: Kentucky center Matt McCuthchan, a two-year starter, has been given a sixth year of eligibility by the NCAA.
McCutchan transferred to Kentucky in 2003 after spending two years at the U.S. Naval Academy. He petitioned the NCAA for an additional year of eligibility following the 2005 season, claiming injuries prevented him from playing during his redshirt freshman year at the Naval Academy in 2002.
McCutchan was named the team's outstanding offensive lineman by coaches following last season. He hasn't practiced during the team's spring drills because of an ankle injury, but was on the field with the team in street clothes Saturday.
"This is just like getting a star recruit," Brooks said. "It is a huge plus for our team."
Numbers: Tony Dixon was the leading rusher in Saturday's scrimmage with 16 rushes for 53 yards. "He started out creeping a little bit, then he looked like his old self," Brooks said. "He still does not have all his quickness and explosiveness back and the hamstring and calf injuries have slowed him down. But he still has the instincts to make people miss." ... Joe Joe Brown had six catches for 30 yards and just missed making a 45-yard diving catch. Dixon had three catches for six yards. ... Defensive end Dominic Lewis had an interception and sack. Tackle Myron Pryor had a sack.
