This is...interesting.

The Kentucky Wildcats seemed to be in a good spot for their top football target, but things are starting to trend in the wrong direction.

Owensboro quarterback Gavin Wimsatt is ranked as the No. 3 dual-threat quarterback in the country, and he is nearing a decision.

It was believed that Notre Dame was the top competition in this recruitment, but the Notre Dame received a commitment from Steve Angeli putting Kentucky in a great position to land Wimsatt.

However, 247 Sports recruiting analyst Steve Wiltfong logged a Crystal Ball prediction for Wimsatt to go to… Rutgers.

Rutgers is one of the final four to land Wimsatt along with Georgia Tech, Cincinnati, and Kentucky.

Wimsatt’s mother told Wiltfong that they recently visited Rutgers and left pleased.

In addition, Rivals recruiting analyst Dave Lackford is also picking Rutgers to land Wimsatt.

This would be a massive loss for the Cats as Wimsatt is their top 2022 target and they are all in on him being the future leader of the Kentucky offense.

Hopefully, Vince Marrow is able to turn this recruitment back into Kentucky’s favor.
