UPDATE

KSR is reporting that Will Levis is in fact on Kentucky’s radar, so he’ll be a name to watch on the transfer market in the coming weeks.


Penn State Nittany Lions quarterback Will Levis has decided to throw his name into the transfer portal and transfer out of Happy Valley.

Why is this news, you may ask?

Recruiting insiders Dave Lackford and Justin Rowland seem to think that Kentucky could be a player in the recruitment of Levis. There is no official word on if they will be pursuing Levis or not, but he’s automatically one of the top transfer QBs to watch.

Levis, a Class of 2018 recruit, appeared in 14 games in Happy Valley over the last two seasons, as he served as the primary backup to Sean Clifford in both seasons.

He completed 61/102 passes for 644 yards and three touchdowns vs. two interceptions. He rushed for 473 yards and six touchdowns on 133 attempts. Even though he wasn’t starting, Penn State still deployed him ads a change-of-pace QB to run the ball occasionally.

Now, it doesn’t seem like Kentucky would need to go after a Penn State transfer when you have 1.) Beau Allen and 2.) Joey Gatewood already battling for a starting position. 3). Kentucky also signed and brought in 2021 Somerset quarterback Kaiya Sheron in, who will presumably be the third stringer.

And then, arguably the top 2022 quarterback prospect in the country resides in Owensboro, by way of Gavin Wimsatt, a dual-threat quarterback who can be an instant game-changer the moment he steps on the field. Kentucky is rumored to be heavily involved with Wimsatt.

Do you think the Kentucky Wildcats coaching staff should pursue Levis and/or other transfer QBs?
