The Kentucky Wildcats are going with Will Levis as the starting QB, while Joey Gatewood is set to transfer.

On what became a wild Sunday in the QB room, head coach Mark Stoops met with the media to discuss his call to be Kentucky’s signal-caller.

“We were ready. It was the right time,” Stoops said. “I also wanted to...if I knew this was the decision we were going to make, I wanted to give people like Joey (Gatewood) the opportunity to transfer and go somewhere. If you wait another week, he’s trapped here. I thought it was the right decision to let him know where we stand, and he appreciated that.”

Here is a recap of Stoops’ presser via UK Athletics.
