Pike enrolled at UofL in August of 2012 and sat out due to NCAA rules. Pike played sparingly in 2013, seeing action in seven games and recording one catch for four yards. He mostly played on special teams and came close to blocking a few punts.

A source with UofL said, “He hasn’t been a member of the team since coach Petrino got here”.

Pike had a lot of talent and great size but seemed to battle off-the-field issues dating back to his senior year of high school. Pike was suspended for his final game at Dixie Heights for an undisclosed reason.
