The Kentucky Wildcats are hosting a huge football transfer.

According to Cats Pause, former USC Trojans offensive tackle E.J. Price is visiting UK. He has since posted the news on his Twitter page:

Price left USC three games into the 2016 season, though he remained enrolled at the school through the ensuing spring semester.

Price was one of the most highly sought after offensive linemen in the Class of 2016. 247 Sports Composite, which measures all of the major recruiting services, had Price ranked 89th overall in addition to being the 10th-best offensive tackle in his class.

The 6-6, 311 pound lineman hails from Georgia where he played high school football, so he’s actually grown up somewhat close to Lexington, despite heading to California for his first college.

There isn’t much info available in terms of who else Price is considering or when he hopes to make a decision by, but he’d a major addition for a UK program that needs linemen. Entering the 2017 season, both starting tackles are seniors in addition to one starter on the interior. That’s three starters UK will lose for 2018, so having a guy like Price would be very valuable and could help offset those losses.
