With the end of the college football season here, we are now only a week away from the first transfer portal window opening for those looking for a new home next football season.
Some players are already announcing their intentions to enter the portal after some early coach firings, including at Texas A&M.
It now appears that the Kentucky Wildcats are going to throw their hat in the ring for one of the best players to enter the portal at this point in Texas A&M transfer Raymond Cottrell.
Hayes Fawcett of On3 reported the list of schools to reach out to Cottrell on Monday evening.

Kentucky is one of 23 schools to reach out to the talented wide-out, including the Texas Longhorns, Florida Gators, Oklahoma Sooners, Tennessee Volunteers, Miami Hurricanes, Ole Miss Rebels, and plenty of others.
Cottrell entered the portal on Nov. 13th and is considered a four-star recruit in the portal at this time.
Out of high school, he was considered a four-star player and was among the top 250 players in the class of 2023, according to the 247 Sports Composite rankings.
With the impending loss of Tayvion Robinson, Mark Stoops and Liam Coen are going to be looking for a player to come in and make an immediate impact alongside Barion Brown and Dane Key in the 2024 season. Could Cottrell be that player?
It is incredibly early in this process, but it is good to see this stuff so active early after another slow offensive season.
