Tavin Richardson confirms transfer

Kentucky is losing a starting receiver.

Tavin Richardson is leaving the Kentucky Wildcats.

After recent reports of Richardson being in the transfer portal emerged, it seemed like only a matter of time until he announced he was indeed transferring.

That finally came Wednesday night:

Several teammates have already wished him good luck in his next venture.

Richardson has started in 25 games during his Kentucky career, including every game in 2018. After catching 27 passes for 371 yards in 2017, Richardson only grabbed 13 passes for 114 passes this past season. There was also the emergence of Lynn Bowden, who was the Wildcats’ leading receiving in this special season. David Bouvier also came out of nowhere to be a factor in the team’s offense in 2018.

With Richardson out, guys like Josh Ali, Isaiah Epps and Allen Dailey are now in line to take on bigger roles in 2019.

It’s unclear what schools are pursuing Richardson, but wherever he lands, he’ll hopefully find what he’s looking for.
