The Kentucky Wildcats just finished what was a mediocre year (by their standards) of football for the 2023 season. Head coach Mark Stoops and his team finished with a 7-5 record after beating the No. 10 Louisville Cardinals in their season finale.
Senior quarterback Devin Leary was “good” but not what the Wildcats had hoped for as far as reaching his full potential.
The QB position has had many faces over the last several years in Lexington, with another set to take the reins next fall. So why exactly did Brock Vandagriff pick the Wildcats?
Let’s all send a big “thank you” to offensive coordinator Liam Coen. Vandagriff told KSR his relationship with Kentucky’s OC was one of the main reasons why he chose UK.
It’s also pretty clear he has a ton of respect for the rest of Kentucky’s coaching staff and thinks a lot of the players he’ll be surrounded with. The Wildcats have a duo of star receivers — Barion Brown and Dane Key — whom Vandagriff can step in and immediately be productive with.
Vandagriff was the country’s fourth-best QB coming out of high school — so the talent is clearly there. He’s also motivated to prove why he was ranked that high and he’ll have arguably his best opportunity early on in the 2024 season against his former team when Kentucky hosts the Georgia Bulldogs during Week 3 in Lexington on September 14th.
Let us know what you think about Vandagriff and how he can help improve UK’s offense.

Glad this is happening.

Starting to make sense.
No surprise here.
Thoughts on this?
He’ll wrap up his career in Lexington.
Not sure what else they need to hear.
