Update: Looks like Kentucky won’t be getting Donaven McCulley.
According to 247 Sports’ Matt Zenitz and Steve Wiltfong, McCulley is expected to remain at Indiana.
This comes after McCulley visited Kentucky this past weekend.
The current expectation is that Indiana standout wide receiver Donaven McCulley, who entered the transfer portal in November, will withdraw from the portal and remain at Indiana, sources tell @swiltfong247 and me for @247sports.— Matt Zenitz (@mzenitz) December 15, 2023

The NCAA transfer portal doesn’t officially open until December 4th, but the Kentucky Wildcats already have a visit in the works.
According to Steve Wiltfong of 247 Sports, Kentucky will host Indiana Hoosiers transfer wideout Donaven McCulley for a visit on the weekend of December 8th. It’s the first reported transfer visit for Mark Stoops and Co.
Originally a class of 2021 quarterback recruit, McCulley moved to wide receiver and is coming off a season in which he was an All-Big Ten Honorable Mention. He played in 12 games (11 starts) while logging a team-high 48 receptions for 644 yards (13.4 avg) and six touchdowns.
As a true freshman in 2021, McCulley caught 16 passes for 169 yards (10.6 avg) and one score.
Thus far, the Cats have lost wide receiver Dekel Crowdus to the transfer portal, while Tayvion Robinson has no more eligibility, so they’re in need of more depth at the position.
