Now that the Kentucky Wildcats are off for several weeks until their bowl game, this is when we’ll start seeing the transfer portal heat up.

The latest player to leave the program is running back Travis Tisdale, who entered the portal today. He joins Jake Pope and Nik Scalzo as the host of 2019 signees to leave the program.

A former 4-star recruit (via ESPN) in the Class of 2019, Tisdale has rarely seen the field since arriving in Lexington, including just one carry this season against Louisiana Monroe. He finishes his UK career with 12 runs for 82 yards (6.8 avg) and one score. Among his offers coming out of high school included Ole Miss, Penn State, USC and LSU.

The writing has been on the wall for Tisdale as guys like JuTahn McClain and Le’Vell Wright have gotten more touches recently, while Chris Rodriguez and Kavosiey Smoke have gotten most of the workload. All four of those backs could be back next season, so you can’t fault Tisdale for wanting to find a better situation for playing time elsewhere.

Best of luck!
