Update: According to his Twitter account, Ja’Mori Maclin is visiting Kentucky this weekend.


Depending on how the wide receiver room shakes out, the Kentucky Wildcats could be in need of a new pass-catcher for next season.

There’s also the news that wide receivers coach Scott Woodward is out. Woodward was at Kentucky for three years, so now that he’s leaving, you have to wonder if some of the current receivers he recruited to Lexington will follow suit.

Back on November 20th, Texas A&M transfer receiver Raymond Cottrell confirmed he was receiving interest from Kentucky.

Now, North Texas wideout Ja’Mori ‘Jay’ Maclin has announced a scholarship offer from Kentucky. He holds additional offers from Ole Miss, Penn State, Cincinnati, and Michigan State, among others.

The cousin of Missouri Tigers great and longtime NFL receiver Jeremy Maclin, Ja’Mori began his collegiate career at Mizzou for two seasons before entering the transfer portal in 2022. He would ultimately land at North Texas, where he spent the next two years.

This past season was Maclin’s best, as he racked up 57 catches for 1,004 yards (17.6 avg) and 11 touchdowns. The 5-foot-11, 183-pounder caught 16 balls for 380 yards (23.8 avg) and two scores in 2022.
