National Signing Day technically doesn’t start until Wednesday, but the Kentucky Wildcats are already announcing the addition of some new players.

On Tuesday, Kentucky announced through social media the addition of four new transfer portal players for next season.

Georgia Bulldogs transfer quarterback Brock Vandagriff was the first announced via Twitter, and the 6-foot-3 QB is officially headed to Lexington after spending three seasons with the Bulldogs. The former 5-star recruit will have two seasons of eligibility remaining.

North Texas wide receiver Ja’Mori Maclin was the next announcement. After two seasons in Missouri, Maclin made the move to North Texas, where he put together a 1,000-yard and 11-touchdown season before making the move to Kentucky.

Sticking with wide receivers, Texas A&M transfer Raymond Cottrell is officially a Wildcat. Cottrell was a former 4-star recruit and played just one season for the Aggies as a redshirt freshman, meaning he has four years of eligibility remaining.

Ohio State running back Chip Trayanum was the fourth announcement for the Cats. He started his college career at Arizona State before taking his talents to Ohio State to play linebacker. After some injuries, he moved back to running back and was the Buckeye’s second-leading rusher in 2023.

It is not officially National Signing Day yet, but the Cats are already off to a great start. Let’s hope it continues for the new 24 hours!
