Thursday Headlines: Transfer Portal Watch

Who will UK reel in from the portal?

Mark Stoops Intro Dylan Ballard - A Sea of Blue

Good morning BBN!

Transfer season is in full swing as the Kentucky Wildcats look to continue bolstering the football roster for what hopes to be a major bounceback in 2023.

Among some of the more notable players UK is recruiting include Northern Illinois tackle Marques Cox, Vanderbilt running back Ray Davis, NC State quarterback Devin Leary, and Ohio State defensive back Jantzen Dunn, while Alabama transfer Tanner Bowles has already pledged to the Wildcats.

Here’s to hoping Mark Stoops and Co. are able to land the right guys and ensure the 2023 Wildcats are able to have the kind of season everyone envisioned the 2022 club would.
