Terry Wilson will not apply for medical redshirt

2020 will be Wilson’s final college season.

2020 will be the final college season for Kentucky Wildcats quarterback Terry Wilson.

The UK signal-caller will be entering his senior season at Kentucky and fifth total college season, but he may have been able to obtain a sixth-year medical redshirt the same way teammate and defensive tackle Phil Hoskins was able to.

Instead, Wilson will not fight for an additional college season.

“Five years is enough,” Wilson told Connor O’Gara of Saturday Down South.

Wilson also told SDS that if he does not have any post-college opportunities as a player, he would like to either the fashion field or get into coaching.

Wilson arrived in Lexington in 2018 after spending time at both Oregon and Garden City Community College. He is 12-3 as Kentucky’s starting quarterback as he led UK to just their third 10-win season in program history in 2018 and won each of his two starts in 2019 before suffering a season-ending torn patellar tendon.
