Kentucky football might not be finished adding to its roster.
A big name entered the transfer portal in the form of Dare Rosenthal, a starting offensive lineman at LSU.
And big is an understatement when it comes to Rosenthal, who comes in at 6-7 and 327 pounds.
Rosenthal played for the Tigers on their national title run in 2019 and then was a full-time starter last season. A former four-star recruit in the class of 2018, Rosenthal immediately becomes one of the top transfers out there, and the Cats look like an early contender for his services.
Darian Kinnard has one of the tackle spots locked up, and Jeremy Flax is seen as the early leader for the other tackle spot, but Rosenthal could potentially come in and play either tackle spot or one of the guard slots.
Coupled with Luke Fortner, Kenneth Horsey, Austin Dotson, and the rest of the o-line, that’s a really solid group that should be one of the best in the SEC.
There are some off-field concerns, though, and that must be taken into account. Violations of team rules are reportedly behind the transfer, but there’s no doubt the Kentucky coaching staff will weigh that against the possible benefits of having a player the caliber of Rosenthal on the team.
This will definitely be something to keep an eye on.

Couldn’t agree more.
This could be yet another game-changing move for a Kentucky team that already has top-25 potential next season.
This visit will be crucial.
Booker and Bam will be representing Team USA.
He’s going to play a key role in the secondary.
He’s getting in the front of the NIL wave.
Who would benefit the most by landing the star point guard?
We’ll see if they mean what they say.
There’s your feel good story of the day.
